The timeline described in this article omits some pertinent facts:

1935-1987 Overnite was a profitable, independent LTL company

1987-2003 Overnite was wholly owned by Union Pacific Railroad

2003-2005 Overnite issued an IPO and became independent again, trading on the NASDAQ under the symbol OVNT

2005 Overnite was purchased by United Parcel Service, becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary and rebranded to UPS Freight, though the home office remains at Richmond, VA —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.177.78.21 (talk) 17:20, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

January 2014. Almost 8 years after the purchase and name change, UPS Freight has yet to brand all of it's equipment. Still with delapitated trailers from Motor Cargo of days past, there are still. hundreds of Overnight transportation (purchased by Motor Cargo) trailers still in use. With branding being so important to UPS, one would wonder why UPS would allow this to happen. "Who's moving my freight" You don't always see the tractor thats pulling the trailer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.2.153.10 (talk) 20:59, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
