    This is probably the last you'll ever read about it. As soon as I saw in the second paragraph that the CEO is a former truck driver that's had 4 start-ups that grossed around 4 million dollars, I knew it was a non-starter.

    Sounds like this would be huge risk for the carriers. Who is the 3rd party that is vetting the drivers?

    I was thinking about something like this a few weeks back, unfortunately staffing services for trucking exists as I found out. This is basically a Uber type app for truckers. Instead of calling for a cab you call for a driver.

    There is a load going from near your home on the west coast going to the east coast. How do you get home?

    Interesting concept.

    Goes back to the argument of shippers do not want to deal with carriers.

    They will pay this amount to get it there by Tuesday and puts it on the back of the Broker

    A Responsible broker will find the right carrier or its his azzz.

    there’s a service that’s posts on Craigslist in my area that says 3-5 weeks out air fair included, I’m guessing they fly you out and back, once your tour is done.

    So it's a temp service that takes up to 45% of the paycheck?

    Underwhelmed.....
