When rates are good, I mean really good, everyone wants a peace of the pie. So then we have an overage of companies/trucks for the product. Then rates drop, do to overage on trucks, and the trucks dissapear.
We've been in a slow up tick on rates, there are some down tick too. A big jump is bad, up and down.
I have got alot of stupid rates on Medical loads. Did Elkhart to Indy for 2k four drums of blue dye for cat scans. Got it from a trucking company that specializes in Medical loads only. Funny thing is they lease trucks to their drivers for 1.30 mile and their Med loads pay $4mi on a bad day.
