Hmm... From what I hear from the Mercer faithful that have been here for awhile almost all of the flatbed freight is offered to multiple carriers. They say that's just the way it is. Idk. I'm sure Mercer has some contract freight that's only theirs but they have a bunch of the freight that is offered to other carriers. I would think that would make it hard to avoid and I wouldn't see them as being the customers that take forever to load and unload.
This is all just opinion based on what I've heard. Lol
