I would like to thank everyone who joined us last night for Tim Walland’s presentation on the changes in the trucking industry. Normally a follow-up e-mail is not issued, but I believe some of the material that Tim covered is going to affect all of us. Not only in the business we operate but in our everyday grocery bill. It seems that the new mandates for trucking are due to take effect January 1, 2014 and are making significant changes to the industry. And I’m sure you already guessed it, prices are going up.
