    How have things been in the freight division lately? Does it seem like you guysa re starting to see more stuff coming through the docks with the weather getting nicer? I hear Yellow and Roadway are losing share, wondering if we are picking up any of it on your side of Brown?

    Freight in Toledo is hiring 18 triples and 20 doubles drivers. I think they are counting on YRC not being able to meet their note. Especially since they just requested bail out money for the pension fund.

    Anyone out there think their terminal is getting busier? I have heard there is a lot of tonnage moving away from a certain big LTL provider moving to some others really making numbers better. You guys seeing anything?

    Our terminal is picking up new accounts and the bills per shift are up. Doing pretty good for the way the economy is right now
