    They should just wrap the trailers instead of painting them, lol

    YA know in the past few months shipper would say when you pu/del a load, who do you drive for? I just found it easier to say Conway XPO...lol...because at some shippers they wouldn't understand and give you a blank stare. So to have it click with them I just gave them both names. That XPO freebie hat was do cheap wore it one week and threw it away..lol...Now will be back to Conway CFI, after maybe 8 months to a year CFI...lol...

    They don't paint them. They use the same material for the wrap to make lettering and the colored stripes.

    I been checking out the new health insurance enrollment , they did exactly what I told a friend they would do. Basically same plan through Cigna, BUT read it all . ..now HSR plan which is the employer funded plan, they have cut down their fund donation from $1500.00 to $250.00/individual $500.00 family. also deductible up from $3000.00 to $4000.00, and out of pocket large deductible up from $8000.00 to $10,000.00. So now if you use up that 250/500 , now you pay st 100% until you reach ($4000.00 minus $500.00), than you pay 20%. Good to know. The recent live call in president said everyone get in on the enrollment date as it will be good for CFI which is true, however their is a Lil hidden agenda here going on and that is, they can approximate or guesstimate the number of drivers that will stay with the force by simply looking at who or how many are really enrolling for the insurance, just a thought is all. The other thing is I got a few friends at other companies on a copay type health insurance and really the copay is looking to be better in my opinion. We all know health insurance is wacky right now, but I'm just throwing this out there for the driver that hasn't read up on it. It comes down to taking from you to the stock holders, pretty sickening really. The plan has gone up appx $15.00 more a week for those wondering, and of course with the above changes.

    I remember some companies would still refer to conway as CFI.
