Our day starts when banker's hours end. Thousands of flights move millions of pounds of work from city to city every night while the rest of the country is asleep.
We're out there in the freezing rain getting de-iced when you're laying down for bed.
If I was a freight dog, I'd be slightly annoyed at the marketing excerpt. Freight Dogs around here seem to get a little sensitive about being told they were dangerous, or stupid, for doing the kind of flying they do. The excerpt seems to reinforce every stereotype you guys get irritated with.
