Could NWP be vital in rebuilding santa Rosa??

Hey guys I was curious if you thought that the nwp could be vital to bring in lumber and supplies to help rebuild santa Rosa after the fires. I mean centerbeams of lumber, boxcars or sheetrock and plywood. Probably won't happen but do you think it could be worth a shot and a email to nwp about this??

Transload Question

I know the NWP is getting desperate for new customers and to me trans loading seems like a huge possibility. I had a few questions though. Does anyone know how trans loading on the NWP works? Does NWP supply the forklifts and crew or does the customer? Does NWP have trucking companies that they work with to transport loads to or from the customer or does customer set that up.Just trying to understand why customers and so hesitant on trans loading.CarlSee More
