    No I don't have a personal problem with him. These are publicly available details.

    I had a problem with Arrow trucking and what they did a few years back . . .

    And if it's walking and quacking like a duck - I'll call it a duck.

    Really? Only time I have EVER seen a check returned is when someone doesn't register the EFS or Fleet One check properly. Anyone in the trucking industry knows that when they check get registered it is as good as gold.

    We don't write typical bank checks. We ACH, wire or EFS/Fleet One. PERIOD.

    So I get that you hate me to such a level that you took the time and energy to create an account on TTR just to attack me and F2F. That's fine. I'm a big boy and have taken responsibility for the mistakes that I have made that got us here.

    But if any of you think that I am sitting back not fighting you are very mistaken. The reason I am on here posting at 02:30 is because we released our overnight person and I am doing that job until we current.

    Bill, you couldn't tell the truth even if it got you out of trouble. The chickens are coming home to roost pal... This will be a mini Arrow trucking mess....

    I've been with F2F for almost two years.
    Back when I started it was just 20 trucks.
    I trust Bill completely and am sticking with him through this tough time. Yes pay has been late, but I have been promised to be current by Monday. I will answer any questions honestly. I'm so convinced the company is going to make it that I'm adding another truck next week. I have built great relationships with brokers that love F2F so much that I don't need the load board much anymore. I get calls and book out a week or so in advance.

    OK, I guess it is time to chime in. Have not been on TTR much lately and I just saw this thread. My wife and I have been leased on to F2F for three years this week. The problems Bill talked about are real and I believe he is being honest on here. That said, I cannot imagine wanting to be anywhere else. The good news for us is that although finances have been rough the last two months and many times pay has been late, we ARE getting paid and it IS getting better. It is also true that we have been in a much better situation to weather this issue since we made so much stinking money the last three years and we are not living paycheck to paycheck. Someone who just bought a truck and just started with the company is probably kinda living on the edge so there has been a much more negative impact and I am really feeling for them. We love this team and we are sticking it out.

    If I'm contracted to a company, I expect to be paid as agreed on time.

    I'm not interested in financing someone's business for them, but that's just me.

    I've done the quick math on the company I'm leased to - they're doing quite well, off my back. The minute the checks are late - I'm bailing out, plenty of other options out there.

    Good luck all.

    Whatever trailer you want to bring with you, or they've got a pool of dry vans you can rent, or you can just do power only with customer trailers.
