    Well I'm headed to Louisville to get inspected. Maybe they will still have some after I'm done Tuesday
    Although this load is easy money I'm on.

    My mistake. There was no 30 day ban. Gene got baited into a permanent ban and the troll was not held accountable one bit.

    There is something going on internally at Mercer....but they are being pretty tight lipped about it. Me and a few others are currently looking at different opportunity's. Enough with the Mercer "cut and paste" load boards. Enough with the $1.40 per mile rates. Enough with the good ol boy system. Literally all of Mercer loads come from other brokers. Why should someone have to pay 26% to have some so called "broker" sit at home on their couch and look for loads on their lap top. (truth hurts dont it). Nothing but watered down rates because the vast majority of the freight are "Hand me downs." Mercer is like the Swift and Prime of the owner operator world. Nothing but an owner operator Mill.

    I'm just curious how either one of you came to your conclusion?

    I know if what I'm hauling is a broker load or direct. That info is easily obtainable.

    Most, if not all, of the loads that we pull show if it is a brokered load or not.

    Where? I'm looking at the board I don't see it anywhere, I checked my settlements, I don't see it there either! I've never seen where it says it's a brokered load!!
