    I am willing to work hard, Someone said to learn what the ordeal out there is, I may not had every situation in my very primary years of driving but I have dealt with enough to know what it is like and how a driver has to deal wirth it, With that said I can certainly get my MC and authority, I know it will be hard work but I have worked hard and I seem to work harder if I know it is mine, I have owned a business in the past, I have been where the beginning is, if I have to go back there then fine, I know my way out I've done it before. Thank You all for the constructive criticism, I can and will figure it out.

    You put in all the carrier's information, as a dispatcher, you don't want any money coming to you, no matter what. You can call to question about a claim (like I did all day today) or call about a short pay, or where the payment is etc, but everything financial is in the carrier's name.

    As far as getting paid, no, I won't wait 60 days to get paid. If I am doing my job right, I won't need to wait 60 days, since most if not all brokers offer quick pay, and most O/O use quick pay, there is no need to wait 60 days, and if they don't use quick pay, then they have enough reserve to pay in a timely fashion.

    Depending on the carrier I am more lenient, and as long as there is communication, I don't worry about not getting paid.

    If you can't tell when someone is stating general fact of life, rather than making personal attacks, then it's not the fault of the person making the post.

    Son if you get your pants up about what I said, you might want to rethink your idea. A trucker will eat you alive. A broker needs to be hard as we are. I drive, you tell me how we can both make money. You get your cut, I get mine, simple as that.
     
    Lilbit Thanks this.

    It seems there has to be some sort of license for this type of business structure, otherwise... isn't that essentially double brokering if you take a cut off the load? I'm curious to how this works as well. I made the mistake of doing some free dispatching as a favor in the past, naturally that "one time request" turned into EVERY LOAD and I can't work at that level for free. Also, not sure how or even IF I could charge for that service...

    Whaaaaatever man. I think you've had enough to drink.

    You asked for input right? I gave good advice. No way in h-e-double hockey stick is any carrier in their right mind giving you their passwords. If that makes me skeptical or negative, then so be it.

    I call it prudent.
