Hey Jrod after a quick Google it would appear some xpo yards have voted to join the teamsters but as a whole Xpo is fighting it and has been clashing with them.

This is 100% correct when XPO came in they started firing a bunch of old Con-Way management, my dad was lucky and after 28 years with Con-Way was only demoted. Luckily someone he knew from Con-Way called and offered him the same position he had with OD.

Hi guys.Sorry if my last topic makes you think that I’m working for NFI.Actually I never did.My problem is w my local ,small company where I started in January 2018.Owner didn’t managed company correctly and got us into financial problems.I stick around w few drivers but lost my regional run 2 weeks ago.They started to return leased trailers and management has no idea what next.I love everyone about this place including pay,run,home time,trucks,miles but it’s getting harder on everyone if there is not light at the end of a tunnel.We r trying to same this place but it’s not easy.Yea,Susan I have written warning for speeding.Learned my lesson and I’m fine ever since.So this is my reason why I’m trying to get some info about companies in my area.My next question would be:how to check CSA ,PSP points on my license?I would like to come clean with new company when my time will come.Thank u everyone.Happy New Year

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

CSA:

Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)

The CSA is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities that are related to commercial motor vehicle

Not to be the negative Nancy, but trucking companies go under every day. Even big ones are subject to possible failure. Case in point, Arrow Trucking. Personally I think Celadon is circling the drain. Use to see Celadon trucks all the time. Now it is a rare sight. When trucking companies close their doors, nothing good happens. I doubt unemployment would even be an option.

The first time a company couldn’t pay me in full for my work, is the last day I would work for them. I honestly wouldn’t stick around to find out what happens next. That is me though.
