Does Prime really pay 90% of the load to O/O?

    I wouldn't base my decision to run their freight on percentages. Find out 90% of what number, then see if that works for you. Are you running your own authority or leasing?

    lol thats correct. 90% of what they tell you it pays. tell them you want to see the load confirmation sheet from broker or shipper on paid miles or fees etc. then get your hopes up

    90% of a low rate is ok with you?

    That would be the next question should the 90% rumor prove true.

    90% is awesome sure. But as Prime is a bottom feeding mega, that 90% is still likely to never get over $1.00 / mile.

    When I was looking for motorcycle insurance, Geico said that they could save me 15% or more. Geoco then quoted me for $150/month. I got a quote from Progressive for $50/month.
