    Is that double brokering?

    No I have my own brokerage and customers. For me I started a few months ago and my business thoughts were if I show the driver what my customer wants to ship it for and also showing the driver or company that I am only taking my 13% then I’m no longer hiding anything. And yes I’m trying to get the best rate I can from the shipper as well. I can sleep at night knowing that I’m not cheating anyone as of the driver takes a cheap load it’s on him he saw the rate and still took it.

    The game of cat and mouse is over we all need to come together and work together I’m born and raised in a trucking family and I know that you can’t run a truck for what some people are asking. We all have families.

    You mentioned you started a few months ago. Was it hard to get shippers to work with you?

    Only profitable when you run less than overhead. Or if you have more than when you start. A lot of people go bankrupt. Take care of your customers and your equipment.
