    I'm not a O/O but my cousin is. He is getting 92% of the load, which means he is giving the broker 8%. Is this a good percentage? He doesn't haul cheap freight nor will the broker let him.

    8% is a standard broker cut, depending on the broker, but since the broker is still showing the 8% charge he must be a small time guy.

    Yes, he does but I will say. The broker took care of him financially when the truck broke down.

    My Brother drives for Landstar. He is as busy as he wants, and only drives the Southern US. He's doing some oversize, but mainly normal flats.
