    New management in place, and honestly I've been sick and tired of hearing double brokerage claims by brokers when trying finalizing a load. I only started working here within the last few months!

    Also its not to essential just work with them, their review makes other people not want to work with us.

    Quoted a reply at the bottom. I recently started working here so I completely agree. 4 years is too long.

    I appreciate your response. Has there ever been any carrier411 dispute that was resolved from a lawsuit? Also, I did say some bad words to the guy out at the end of the phone call which might not play into the company's favor hahaha

    That is strange, that is what the trucking companies, with a broker div. do. They put loads on load boards, that they cut the rates on.

    Don't bother hiring an attorney I'm sure it will cost more than the load is worth.
    The broker you are dealing believes or wants to believe your former owner did something wrong I would handle this buy going after his customers with a vengeance if you have the financial ability to start a brokerage or already have one remember it's [ JUST BUSINESS ] you will meet with more success this way than you ever will in court.
    And if your successful you can rub it in his face one day

    The thing is, you did double broker it. Rate conf/broker agreement was given to one MC# and another MC# did the load. Same owner doesn't mean anything. That's how a lot of sleasy double brokering is done. Not meaning that you are, just the way the bad ones are done.

    The thing is there is an 18 month statute of limitations on transportation collections in the US. That means you should take some sort of action within 12 months at the VERY most, to give whatever action to work its way to a court filing by the time 18 months hits. This sounds like it would of been very collectible 36 months ago, as there are ways to make them listen or lose clients. But yes, definitely should handle on the front end if ever possible.

    Yeah, I know. Just figured that 4 years later an honest mistake could have been forgiven. The guy made it seem like he had to do 10 months worth of work and that I was wasting his time just giving a call and asking

    You have to understand that as a broker (I was going to say honest broker but I know what kind of ridicule I would be opening myself up to haha), there few things that tick us off more than double brokering. Every year my company pays $10,000+ to carriers that were double brokered one of our loads and were never paid by the company that did the double brokering. Additionally the service/communication is always awful on double brokered loads.

    To be quite frank, whether intentionally or not, if your company had double brokered one of my loads we would be having the same conversation whether it was 4 years later or not.

    Something is not being said, if everything went off without a hitch there would be no reason for a FG report.
