    Hello, who did you do financing for? A few years ago I left the Bank and now do equipment leasing from home..the banks are demanding. The work from home now ...much better.

    No say. I decided to get online and give it a try looking for a load from NJ/PA out to cali... to my surprise my jaw dropped when I got on and saw what our beloved "brokers" are paying.. dirt cheap rates as usual. Best paying load I saw today is set at $4300, comodity military, for 2500 miles.. but thats not all, i spent around 3 hours checking out freight going from here to there, and over there to that other state.. now wtf is going on? Do they ever look out their windows and see the big zza green/red sign? It says $4.09 for diesel!!
    Now I'm wondering how in the world are O/o surviving this heartless greedy broker-games madness.

    If carriers would say NO then the brokers would have to charge more and pay more.

    Look in the mirror, there's the problem. The whole industry is willing to reinvent costs and accounting so they can put freight on their wagons.

    And people have been selling lowrent prices since the days of the teamster. Being as we're in a service business, that's what I sell. And it's ALL I sell. Some 10-penny freight pimp wants a discount price he/she knows better than to call me. Either that or they're new.

    They learn quick, however.

    Trust me, I had to get a real truck and the new machine is still paying for that mo**erfu**er.

    Can I just say that I don't see trucking and Truckers as a joke at all. There are some very good Truck drivers who take pride in everything they do. As in every job there are bad eggs. Please dont slag truck drivers off. It is tiresome.
