When I first started I thought I would need them. Got set up with Hunt, Maverick, Prime, England, XPO, ATS and TMC. I did haul a couple for CRST because I used to be leased to them so dealing with their brokerage as an independent felt natural. But I quickly found out I never needed any of them! They all have bad contracts and/or poor credit too. Brokerage choices for Carriers are endless. No need to help your enemy grow stronger.
