    Is this normal?

    Should I be worried that I sent them this?

    It was to Soren Transport that's an authorized agent for England Logistics

    Has any owner ops worked for them before? Are they legit?

    Sorry never pulled freight there. I have never been asked for a registration before be sent to a broker but haven’t pulled broker freight in years and when I did I only used a few brokers I had relationships with.Don’t know how it would hurt anything guessing he wants to make sure who he’s dealing with don’t know for sure

    A lot of brokers are going to a third-party that's taking care of all that called Highway. Yes they asked for your registration or a copy of your title and a lot of other things. I just move on.

    Ive had a bigger broker ask me to send pictures of my truck w/ trucking company name on it and tag a few years ago....... I cant vouch for this Soren Transport you're asking about but im sure with all of the fraud going on, its just to verify you are who you say you are. IE, a carrier.
     
    RefMata, 86scotty and Siinman Thank this.

    Yeah I had a discussion with a broker about this issue today. We hauled for them for two years and all of a sudden they wanted all of this info, we went in circles so it pissed me off to the point I told him that they are on our DO NOT HAUL LIST now.

    I've been asked for this by two brokers this past year. They were both legit brokers just covering their backsides from double brokering.

    If you haul spot market brokered freight you're bound to see it more in the future I bet. It was an inconvenience and pretty unnecessary but
    if you want the load you've got to play their games.
