    Whatever you pay. Varies greatly.

    I guess there's not a industry standard or common percentage rate they charge it sounds like? They just charge what they want?

    Every Broker is different. Some brokers have a huge sales staff flying around the country whining and dinning Shippers. They're going to take a higher percentage to pay for all that. Others may take 10%, or less because they don't have as much money invested into their accounts.

    As a Owner Operator I only worry about what I make. If I accept a load from a Broker, it's because the rate worked for me.
