    So I'm browsing the Convoy App and I'm wondering if any of you really haul at way less then 1$ per mile or even 1$?

    Nope. That's why I've been parked for 3 weeks.

    Not a chance. I set my load parameters at minimum $3.25, $1500 revenue.

    Almost zero load volume this year over last year, at that rate.

    Therefore - we are parked up.

    That's not what the pay. It is a load auction. You need to bid.
    Their initial rates, which is the rates that you start bidding on, have never been staggering...in the opposite direction.
     
    Dave_in_AZ and Edjahman Thank this.

    No way, that's why we only hauled once for them back in February for $3 per mile. You have to bid and hope that no one says that they can do it for a lower price.

    I bid but they are cheap. This is my YTD for them.

    Thank you everyone for your replies.

    I'm new to the Convoy App. My buddy has been talking about it for quite some time.

    Take care.

    And out of the 19 loads I have done I have probably bid on 100. My success rate is very low.

    What state are you located in? Convoy and Uber can be horrible depending on where you're located. Right now Uber has higher paying loads that Convoy out west. And no, I never take the cheap loads.
