    L&R Transportation out of Chicago refuse to give me rate confirmation due to company policies. When I came on board the agreement that I was supposed to get paid 83% of what the truck growths but instead that rip me off and said that the market was low and kept text rates of 1100-1800 with loads that was well over 700 miles, instead of the actual broker rate that was given by the broker. I asked numerous times for the rate confirmation and they replied that they didn't want conflict between broker and contractor. They ripped me off by thousands of dollars. I'm currently trying to find a lawyer to represent my case against them. Does anyone have a lawyer in mind that will fight a case like that ?

    If you’re paid a percentage of revenue, you’re entitled to copies of the invoices to the carrier’s customers or a computerized document containing what normally appears on an invoice. Or a computerized settlement statement suffices, provided it contains typical freight bill information such as loading location, delivery points, weight, piece count, etc.

    You’re not entitled to a copy of the load confirmation sheets, but the carrier may choose to give copies. However, you’re always entitled to review the load confirmation sheets, contracts and rate circulars used to calculate the charges for a load you hauled.

    Confirmations go to the carrier.

    Read up on laws.

    So...maybe I'm naive, but how have I lived in Chicago all these years and mainly worked for companies that people have heard of?

    376.12(G) Copies of freight bill or other form of freight documentation. When a lessor's revenue is based on a percentage of the gross revenue for a shipment, the lease must specify that the authorized carrier will give the lessor, before or at the time of settlement, a copy of the rated freight bill, or, in the case of contract carriers, any other form of documentation actually used for a shipment containing the same information that would appear on a rated freight bill. Regardless of the method of compensation, the lease must permit lessor to examine copies of the carrier's tariff or, in the case of contract carriers, other documents from which rates and charges are computed, provided that where rates and charges are computed from a contract of a contract carrier, only those portions of the contract containing the same information that would appear on a rated freight bill need be disclosed. The authorized carrier may delete the names of shippers and consignees shown on the freight bill or other form of documentation.

    Isn’t that over a dollar a mile? How are you getting ripped off? Also you can’t do anything if you’re 1099. If you own the truck and you aren’t just the driver… well then you got fleeced my guy
