    Truckers reveal in a new survey who they hate shipping for the most

    "Truckers told Zipline in the survey that grocery retailers like Kroger, Walmart, C&S Wholesale Grocers, and Safeway takes hours (sometimes even days) to unload their trucks and might not pay drivers for how long they spend at their warehouses."

    ELD Mandate Report; October 2018 Update

    "Drivers shared that they feel there is a major disconnect between shippers/receivers and the ELD mandate. Carriers feel that some places do not care or do not understand the effect of the ELD regulation. The more a shipper or receiver can accommodate a driver, the easier it will be to get a truck into that facility at a better rate."

    They don't pay because broker don't demand to or just steal carriers money. Why do you think in every broker - carrier agreement is clause not to contact shipper/receiver. It is really easy to be a good business partner with shipper/receiver if loss will take someone else outside of the circle.
