    What a crappy trailer in the bottom pic. Needs a wash.

    In another thread someone mentioned how easy it will be for them to steal our feeder work now.

    Stealing? Better then giving it away to the Independents.

    Sounds like concessions to me. Could've created new jobs instead of allowing freight to do the work for us.

    Teamsters giving concessions? Never going to happen.

    I see blue and every other color on UPS trailers makes no sense

    All the damn time. I always wave at them on the road and they don't wave back because they are jerks and I didn't realize it was freight.

    I'm tired of seeing the gypos in our yard. We already used freight drivers during peak. I can totally see it happening. hall "it's ok, cause they are teamsters at least" what a joke.

    I will be honest though, I always thought the grey, gold, and brown was pretty damn sweet. I sort of wish UPS would add another color in the mix. I always feel like we are out of date. O

    It's probably cheaper when ordering tractors to get them in one color than two tone. I deliver to a UPS freight terminal and they are no way like us. They still reward service and safety milestones.

    Freight is going to the Brown just like UPS. The only difference, besides being a Volvo, which UPS does not use yet, only Freight, is the smaller UPS logo on the door with UPS Freight below it.

    They also get paid less. You can have your beard and turkey in exchange for several thousand dollars

    The freight hub is one route over from my area and I have seen both of those but I have also seen this...

    I mean come on man... How long ago did we buy overnight and still have these crusty looking overnight trailers on the route; not to mention they are being pulled by the old school overnight tractors with the UPS door magnet sign on the side.
