    Sometimes there would be good fights when one was too cheap. LOL

    Not unless the CB is hooked to the internet. LOL

    While lumpers are a pain, I understand why some companies go that route.
    What gets me is that they take FOREVER to unload. 3-4+ hours and still want $500+. I shouldn't have to wait for you to put the product back in storage. Get it off the truck, do your count and send me on my way. That way you don't have 80 trucks waiting.
    Granted I don't deal with them as often anymore switching to a non-reefer company
