    Truck drivers are losing money between axe of evil ( dispatchers brokers and Companies) these evils should be the biggest lires in the history. they are living on the evil way. Screwing drivers and still from them. they will never give you a proof of how much a load is booked for. they still detention and don't pay layovers. Get a booking proof before you accept the load.

    Izm...I gotta say that it sure sounds like you have had some ugly bumps OTR! Yes, indeed, their is someone at every corner seeking a buck from the truck, but that's just the nature of some people. I am a dispatcher for seven carriers. When I book a load, the bossman & one bosslady immediately get a copy of the Rate Con, followed by a copy of the invoice after delivery. So "my drivers" (as I call them) always know exactly what transpires. This includes copy of Revised Rate Cons in the event of detention. There have been times when I suspect that the broker pocketed detention pay, but cannot really know for sure unless the shipper / receiver is contacted and asked if detention was paid on the load.

    Oh, come on now, LSAgentOZR...You make a distinction without difference.
    What does it matter if your fee is at the front of the line or at the back of the line.
    Either way you are in line for your fee.
    A fee is a fee is a fee!

    I pay $0. I'll dispatch anyone at Landstar and your truck will never stop, and you'll make a bunch of money.
    It's a snap.

    I know a company that charges 20% per load then still charge an additional $20 for every load they dispatch me on.....but I thought tht was the whole point of the %20
