Morgan Southern needs to be added to the list of unsavory companies to lease on with as an Owner Operator and Lease Operator. Their mileage pay is still .90 cpm. They cut your throat on the fuel surcharge. Other intermodal companies pay 38% Morgan pays no more than 17%. If you use their fuel card they charge you $9.00 to load the card with the amount you think you will use for the week, plus charge you $2.00 every time you use it. They changed it before I left to. Charging you nothing for loading the card with the amount you specify for the week usage, but charging you $5.00 every time you use the card which still could cost the driver up to $25.00 per week, just to use the card for fuel purchase that period. If you lease a truck from them for five years, it could be a piece of junk that could cost you some serious maintenance costs, and if you leave before the lease is complete you get no money returned from escrow. I knew this guy leased a truck from them about three years. He returned the truck to them, went and purchased a truck of his own to lease on and they still charged him lease payments on the truck he was leasing from them. Drivers told him to go somewhere to lease his truck on but he wouldn't listen. Art Fitzgerald manager at the Kansas City terminal is one of the most Crafty, Dastardly, Unscrupulous, individuals in the business. That guy will lie in a NewYork minute to a driver. You'll also starve if you lease on there. They've got no runs to speak of, no customers, he'll wear your truck out hauling those overweight loads for Comtrac Logistics that their drivers won't take. I know the deal. I was leased there for two years and almost lost my truck two consecutive years. Average about fifteen hundred miles or less. There was one lease operator that had paid his truck off, but he owed a lot of money for maintenance so a mechanics lean was applied,so he couldn't get his title. One day he had an accident, running into the rear of a fuel transport vehicle. The cost to fix his truck was fifteen thousand dollars which exceeded the value of his truck so they totaled his truck out and terminated his lease operator agreement. He was the only lease operator that had paid his truck off, in truck payments. He would never had paid the maintenance costs off on that truck. Never the less Morgan Southern will "Bone" you. You'll never get ahead at the Kansas City Terminal with Fitzgerald. Trust in that. Also I'd like to mention this company put incorrect information on my DAC Report claiming I HIT A PARKED CAR WHILE BACKING UP. I did no such thing. I was pulling away from the dock after unloading, the door on my container came unhooked and hit the truck that was next to me unloading. I should have called a Cop to make the true report. If I knew Fitzgerald would lie about the incident I would have gotten a Cop to make the report. Now I'm in the process of disputing the acusation on my DAC Report. I got to submit a statement as instructed by DAC what took place.
