We got stuck in Nashville the other day. Nothing moving. A $200 local move pops up. Decided to do it while waiting on a real load. Anyway, long story short my driver ended up hand carrying 6 boxes, ONE door down and delivering. Like, WOW people.

You were told you should do this yourself. It’s your own fault if you didn’t.
I would rather there be NO gov assistance because it would only
Mean great rates quicker for me. I would be fine. However, since the gov has made it so easy to get free money. I can not afford NOT to take gov assistance. If my competitor can run for .60 to $1 cheaper then that’s a problem. Not one caused by me.D.Tibbitt and Rubber duck kw Thank this.
It's safe to write you don't want the Govt. involved with regulating anything.
Besides, anyone can request from the Broker FULL DISCLOSURE and see for themselves the $$paid by the shipper to the broker.
Brokers, just like O/O's AND everyone else, want to make as much money as possible, PERIOD!
Again, again and AGAIN!! Caveat emptor. The O/O has the responsibility to do the due diligence in running his/her business.
Go to the grocery store. Great looking rib steaks!!, BUT $35.00 a lb.??? No thanks, pass on that one. What's so hard about don't run a load that doesn't pay enough??? YEESH!!D.Tibbitt, Rubber duck kw and Long FLD Thank this.
You want a real-time, real-world example of why you do NOT want the Govt. involved:' ............
National Railroad Passenger Corporation, dba "Amtrak".
A genuine, real-time, real-world fully legal PRIVATE CORPORATION,
Where 100% of the stock of said corp. is held by the
U.S. Government, i.e., The U.S. Citizens, Taxpayers.(We, The People).......... US!!, you and me...
A Corporation, now 49 years old (estb. 1971) ...............
A Corporation that has NEVER made a profit, or paid a dividend.......but gets a yearly injection of taxpayer millions to keep on running.
Right now Amtrak is running its entire fleet of Long Distant Trains with 2, ...3 times more staff than paying passengers......
But,.. in all fairness and honesty, Amtrak has cut back the number of East Coast Regional Trains and the entire Acela Fleet. Wow, brilliant!!
NUF SAID! You DO NOT want the govt sticking its nose up you hiney!!! and mandating anything, period.magoo68, D.Tibbitt, Long FLD and 1 other person Thank this.
