    So you can double-broker?

    No actually it is just the opposite. So I can find carriers without double brokering.

    I'm a carrier, what are your loads paying? $4, $5, $6 per mile? No California? No East coast?

    Depending on distance. We handle all 50 states and also Canada. A trip from say MN to AZ might pay 2.5-3.5 a mile but a trip from UT to AZ will pay 4-6 per mile. Just depends on how far the run is. Normally the longer the run the lower the mileage rate. We have had some short runs that paid $50 a mile.
