    They love to brag and mislead about the big cut of 80%. There is some newbie on Facebook all proud of a Fema load and his big 80% cut. 80% of most brokered freight is thin. You have to hammer like hell and be really aggressive in your demands to get a good rate/average to the truck. When you add in all the deductions and charge backs they take, that they never talk about but are in the contract, you're looking at way less than 80%. I always hated how they misled people about the percentage they took. It was part of the smoke and mirrors.

    Yeah. Reminds me of the old proverb: "there is none so blind as he who will not see". Some people are like that.

    The check ain't there on Friday? You don't go in on Monday!

    Some people have to learn through the school of hard knocks I guess.

    To the OP,

    Hey just wait a couple of years when Doug Pielsticker gets out of prison and you can lease on with him, he's had plenty of time to think so I bet his new company will be a game changer!!!

    "William Hood" dba Farm2Fleet (MC 731706) out of Jasper, TN was sold to or partnered with Max Trans, LLC (MC 474090) out of Humboldt, TN, but they are switching things to F2F Transport, LLC (MC 168085) out of Chattanooga, TN.

    In addition to being deadbeats, they are obviously proficient in changing names/entities, but if you want to buy snake oil, by all means...

    Here's my take:

    Bill had good intentions, but he tried to grow the business too quickly. At the same time, he decided to go for PRK surgery, and it went badly. The result was that he pretty much went blind for several months. That's not a good thing when you're a critical team member involved in growing a business in the most competitive environment imaginable.

    Bill got behind, and wasn't able to catch up. He was embarrassed, and felt bad, and likely fell into depression over it. The only solution was for him to sell out to another company and / or seek bankruptcy protection from his creditors. Either way, from a legal standpoint, he was forced to withhold payment from creditors (including O/Os) that hadn't been paid prior to the sale of the business / bankruptcy.

    There but for the grace of God go I (or you).
