    This carrier took a half load to Waco, TX about a month ago. They had a set delivery appointment at TSC which was missed by about half a day. Dispatch agreed to wait until next morning to make delivery - and never showed. When we called to track the dispatcher (Alex) told us driver delivered clear. He had, in fact, dropped our freight at an Old Dominion dock down the street with no notification to us. Upon learning of the situation we had to pay OD to re-deliver ($800) and eat the customer's contractual loss for missed delivery appointments.

    Nick at Freighter just called me and asked for payment. He wants $400 for "almost delivering on time". These guys are a total scam. Stay away!

    So if you get PO'd with a broker you can just drop the freight at the local LTL carrier and have them deliver it?

    ??? Why would he get a dime for delivering late and to the wrong address?? I'm a broker and a driver, when a driver accepts a load he agrees to the time of pickup and time of delivery and to deliver the freight in good condition to the address stated. He can go fly a kite. Maybe if he loses money he will pull his head out the his lower orifice.

    It would be interesting to hear the other side of the story.

    You used a shady Chicago EE owned company to haul your cheap freight, you got what you paid for!

    Here's some simple advice. Don't deal with any trucking company or freight broker in the area around Chicago. For some reason Chicago attracts every fraud and con artist in the country.
