Slow Freight In The New Year

Slow freight is the practical problem that drivers have to deal with every year early in the year. Mostly freight slows down from January to April. This time of the year is the time to get upgrades and buy new equipment. That way when the freight is up, you are ready to roll. Every time you get your maintenance done when you aren't busy, you make the best of your time. This strategy doesn't always work out, but when it does, you will make out like a bandit on maintenance throughout the year.
