    So, you think there is a mysterious protocol of sorts as how to approach shippers?

    Exactly, as said before, call them and tell them who you are and what you would like to do for them and maybe Sue will tell you to come over. Then dress nicely, and go and make your sales pitch.
    The most important thing is to believe in a successful outcome.

    I never tried it...I am too shy.:(

    You sure about that?

    That $1 per mile can be "firm" too.

    Might read that brokers agreement before you get in trouble. Just saying be carful on that part.

    You'll never get into the medium and big shippers with 1-2 trucks. Focus on the small Mom and pop type. You would be surprised on how much freight they move and are will pay good money for good service.
