So here we sit in Oklahoma City waiting for a load. No idea when we might get something so no idea if we should be awake or trying to sleep. Of course you can only sleep so much. This is the down side of trucking. When you are not rolling you are not making money.

Right now there is too much freight moving capacity to go around so lots of people are sitting. If you read the economic news about the industry there are clues that the companies see an end in sight. Orders for trailers to be delivered next year are up. Tractors are going to be more expensive because of more emmissions controls but orders are strong there. Companies are investing in infrastructure to be ready when things turn around.
