Prime commanding lead in TCA weight-loss showdown

| April 05, 2012

The Truckload Carriers Association’s Weight-Loss Showdown competition is now well into its 7th week, and results from the end of week 6 showed Springfield, Mo.-based, heavily owner-operator-focused carrier Prime Inc.’s personnel holding a relatively strong lead for the fourth week running, but with System Transport moving up a spot to second and gaining ground. Below find TCA’s graphic showing the full week 6 results, based on the percentage of total weight shed over the weeks.

And for anybody struggling with weight loss, if Prime’s 11.8 percent over six weeks (like an individual drop from 220 lbs. to 194 lbs.) isn’t proof enough that it’s possible, I don’t know what is.
