    X HAS SET ALL OF YOU UP. Over the past 2 decades X has provide everything you needed to conduct business. Mygroundbiz, mybizzaccount, uniforms, a brand, product, decals, policies, trainin
    g,hiring,drug test, equipment, supplies and others. X is not doing this out of kindness. X is controlling everything you do, and knows everything your doing. Why?
    I know the answer. How many of you do?
    It has nothing to do with entrepreneurs, business owners,INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS. Do you see the falacy?
    Now that the number of contractors have fallen, you will no longer be able to hide. Cooperation is not an option and you know it.
    X can replace any of you at any time because they dont want you to provide a unique service. To be provide value. See X doesnt want control to tell you what to do, they eliminate your ability to be in control.
    X will resort to regional providers. They will non renew smaller contractors and utilize a courier that has the capital and resources. There will be 4 entities per state, depending on population, this will happen. X knows you only provide the trucks, and well, X provides everything else. That makes entry into the sector extremely easy for any large entity.

    Your posts just keeping getting better.

    So your main idea is X wants to deleverage all control from many contractors who are easily replaceable and that already have no power. Then give entire terminals to one individual............ who now somehow has less leverage with hundreds of drivers than many small contractors...................even though X really doesn’t want anyone owning more than 10% of a terminal now for the exact opposite reason that you are saying..............

    You need a damn hobby, I think searching for Big Foot, aliens, or becoming a hoarder would be a good fit.

    I'm sorry this post pulled you away from your cartoons. Stick with simple things, it wont confuse you.
    That 10% you mention means nothing, it's just to tame you. Understand the name of the model X has uded has changed, but the model has not. X hasn't really changed a thing, just the way they pay you. It has run afoul with the law, it has run its usefulness.
    X will continue to be challenged, and they know it, and they know why. X provides you with everything, materials, updates, software, directions, all of which violate contracting precedence.
    X is seeking entities that can provide those resources themselves, and that probably doesnt include 99% of you guys with maxed out credit lines.
    By know you are lost if you dont understand what X has to do.

    Someone as worldly wise as @Exec32 should be embarrassed by that gaffe.

    Guess what if I hire you to build my million dollar home, you bet I'm going to want constant updates, will be watching your progress, will be concerned with who you hire(no druggies) and will be watching you like a hawk, it's MY money.

    FedEx is no different you are a CONTRACTED SERVICE PROVIDER! I'm pretty sure Independant Contractor language is being phased out.

    For individuals like you it hard to understand strategic planning.
    It had nothing to do with leverage for X. They will always have that. The 10% rule is nonsense. But people like you take security in that. X will have to make significant changes and have to rely on a more competent entity to achieve what they desire.
    Now go to sleep, and what by the phone for your TM to call.

    You're not your. Doesn't not don't. From past experience it is embarrassing to point out other's ignorance while displaying your own.
