    I doubt if this would ever happen, but, it is

    In 30 years more then likely I’ll be dead and gone. Also in the next ten years diesel might not be around for trucks anyway. Change for some is hard to take, but for most of us, we’ll not be around anyway

    Xpo or Landstar

    There’s other things to take into consideration when chosing a company. Do they allow you to take time off when you want or even work when you want.
