    Yes. When you get set up to haul loads for CHR they will issue a T# to your company that is tied to your MC. It's an internal CHR number. Their agents will always ask you for your T# they'll punch it in on computer and pull up all of your company's info.

    There are other ways to access Transcore, they offer cheaper services for smaller companies. I want to say the one I had was called truckers advantage and it was $20 a month, but it was the DAT load board.

    LOL....funny how the guy never mentioned anything like these to me. All he said was they had this $310/month BS...which I was thinkin is a lil hard to swallow when just startin out. I know some guys are paying $600+ for loadboards, but I really like the idea of LS n CHR. My plans have changed overnight here and I am gonna have to postpone all this till about mid December, but then I will be rarein to go! I really appreciate all the input here, you guys are great!!

    I did make a good score on a heater van I bought today though...2003 Great Dane full insulation w/ TK HKIII heater unit, 6900 hrs, full 50 gal tank of fuel, 70% tires all the way around, new brakes n shocks and about 8 outa 10 on clean n straitness....hauled it outa his yard for $4500...
