    I found this interesting.
    I think I’ll use the broker approach the next time I am ask by a dot officer for my driver logs.
    “Absolutely I can provide you will all my hos information if you Would just come to my home office on a certain day of the week on a certain month at a certain hour I will have it ready for you” Lmao
    If I didn’t know better I might think that the brokers Were purposely being difficult and didn’t want to give information they are required by law to give lol
     
    Dino soar and Nostalgic Thank this.

    Don’t matter if they are transparent or not. Bottom feeders still gonna feed off the bottom. Supply and demand is what moves rates. They could start moving rates up a penny a minute and some desperate ###, broke dick driver will take it way lower than what it should go for. When enough of them go under, and freight volumes go up, freight rates will go up. I mean really, what did people think were going to happen with rates when half the country shut down?
    It’s been good for so long that every Tom, Dick, and Harry that could find a truck was buying one. Many have zero business owning a truck and bidding on freight. Now many of the bottom feeders, and the ones that have been just scraping by the last few years, are crying about what someone else is making.
    Too many drivers trying to be businessmen!
    If you don’t want what the broker has, get your own direct freight. How many have complained that the broker makes too much money for doing nothing? Just making calls? Well, make those calls yourself! Now we will hear all the excuses, shippers do t let small operations in, gotta have more trucks, gotta carry the freight bill for 90 days. All just excuses. And excuses are like a- hokes, everyone has one and they all stink. If it so easy, go do it. If not pay the convenience fee to the broker. Nobody is forcing you to use them. They truly are not necessary but they sure are a convenience, aren’t they? That’s why we all use them.
    Trucker are our own worst enemy.

    The covid and freight 'crises' are just another convenient excuse to go one more click toward socialism.

    Guys want transparency to see what the shipper pays, they want a higher rate as if they had shipper direct freight. So I say no more quick pay or factoring. Let these “businessmen” wait on their money for 90 days like they have shipper direct freight then. That would be one way to squeeze out the bottom feeders too.

    You must have been sitting at the lunch counter. OOIDA has led the fight against any kind of speed limiter regulation or legislation and they still are.
