    My old boss paid his logging trucks on percentage. Any time they changed jobs all the drivers got a copy of the contract that was signed by all companies involved so they knew exactly what the ton rate was for each haul.

    The place I’m leased at now gave me copies of our multi-year contracts so I know the rate, the only thing that changes is the surcharge. It’s not that difficult to be open and honest.

    The original contracts and the trailer lease are two separate issues. Mercer must address both in this suit. I will find out next month if the court will order Mercer to turn over the contracts and if I will have to turn over the trailer.

    You are wrong once again. The court already granted Mercer a protective order that forbids me from disclosing the contracts to anyone. They were supposed to turn over the contracts after getting their protective order but then did a 180 and now refuses to comply with my discovery request. The court will hand Mercer its arse next month if Mercer doesn’t cave and give them to me at the last minute.

    Like I said.......
    Feds: Fuel card company duped truckers out of hundreds of millions
    Fuelman Fires Back Against Allegations it Schemed Millions From Truckers

    FleetCor markets fuel card services under the “Fuelman” brand name in addition to co-branded cards.

    The FTC said that FleetCor “charged customers at least hundreds of millions of dollars in hidden fees after making false promises about helping customers save on fuel costs.”

    A lot of fuel stops I’ve been to aren’t dealing with or accepting Fuelman cards anymore-more than likely because of this issue.
