US Postal Contractor and Trucking Company Gone From Frederick

Blue Mountain Express is allegedly not in business anymore reports an ex employee.

I worked for Blue Mountain Express running a seasonal US Mail route for the Christmas season of 2007/2008.
That job was useful to me as I've been driving straight trucks since 1983 but I've only had a Class A tractor trailer licence since 2004, I wasn't near as good at backing up as I wanted to be and the mail run gave me some badly needed practice in backing up to a dock.

I've backed up to docks before, it just took me longer than some of the other drivers, what made mail different is we had a strict time schedule to keep. I could get to the mail warehouse 5 or 10 minutes early and have it take me 20 minutes to back in (and back in straight) making me late for my scheduled pick up.

The Old Blue Mountain Express is Gone

It was really cool to have a good job ($19 an hour) that was local to Frederick Md, I could even ride my bike or walk there, it's a loss to Frederick Md CDL truck drivers to loose a job in Frederick.
The law of supply and demand is what determines how much we make as drivers, with fewer choices, that puts a downward pressure on salaries.
