    TQL, and XPO. Both have cancelled loads at the last minute, for a cheaper Truck. Flat out rude about it, too. Once is enough, never again.

    fifth wheel, LANDSTAR, online freight services, business to business, sureway, king of freight. To name a few. The list is long. If I know they're scavenger brokers who don't have their own loads and solely double broker. I stay away. Its pretty sad when you look at loads and you can see the same load posted for $1,000 more then what landstar has it posted for. I prefer to not do business with crooks

    I don't like brokers that post loads that say they pay X amount for nine units and when you call to book the load they let you know that rate is for 9 Q8's and then want to know how much weight you can carry while owning a fleet of trucks

    Metrologistics is now Acertus and they are no longer cheap. I've gotten several cars from them over a dollar a mile. Ran a $700 car from ORL to Birmingham AL not long ago for them. In my last run out I ran a $950 car from Texarcana and a $900 car from Little Rock into Mid NC for both. Was around .90 a mile if I recall. Not every car is that good but they are nothing like Metro was. They did a complete about-face..

    The biggest drawback is they now make you use their app to run their cars and it's hard to get anyone on the phone they claim that it's due to covid but my bet is they just cut their staff after they got the app rolling.

    TBH they are now one of my fav's aside from it being near impossible to get ahold of them on the phone. The app is a bit of a PITA but I can book a car and pretty much know I have it 99% of the time without even calling anyone.

    Keep in mind though I'm usually booking single cars from them not big multi-car loads because I'm a hotshot.

    To the other guy I 100% agree on TQL..
