    Careful with Convoy and Uber Freight. After I submit a bid Convoy automatically drop the rate for $200. This automatic system is programmed to bankrupt OP. Idk how people are taking loads for $1.25 a mile. When we stop booking cheap loads they will automatic raise the loads. They want 50% of the load rate. Say no to cheap loads.

    I don’t think it really matters. Guys booking cheap freight will go out of business. Give it time. Then when capacity drops, rates go up. Then new guys see the high rates and jump in. Never ending cycle. At least the higher priced equipment will keep some of the low ballers out from diving in.

    In 2021 ####### saw high rates and ran to dealers and bought everything that was on the lot, and than stimulus money stopped coming and with inflation people don’t have as much money to spend snd there are gazilions of trucks and most of us knew this would happen

    Also no to day old roller dogs and weak coffee. I'm also fed up with hot air hand dryers that aren't forceful enough and pee bottles anywhere except the trash can!:mad:

    then they jump in and try to flatbed without even having the proper equipment to tie down etc. But rates need to creep back up though.
    Dealers should worn new truckers that finding parts to repair trucks can be a pain, maybe that scare some away
