    Broker I pull caterpillar stuff for often finally cut the rate on me as it usually happens after things soften up, I stood my ground as usually and said call me when I’m needed I ain’t doing that. My buddy that works at the dealer sends me a picture following week the guy loading it for him
    Now came in with straps over the top. I almost emailed them the picture and then said no thanks, I will let this sort itself out.

    Yeah Cat allows some frightening drivers to haul their equipment. I guess since it’s going to a dealer so they figure it’s more cost efficient to sort the damage than it is to get quality people in there in the first place.

    I was really surprised that keen let it even leave the yard, what is also surprising is the yard guy that knows me at the dealer from going so many times, and my buddy that has known me for 15 years didn’t make a stink about it. Nobody cares, and I’m learning to be ok with it. It pissed me off more then anybody else involved. Makes me sick that some idiot can run the northeast for sub par rates, when they haul baled trash off Long Island to VA then bounce 150 miles for a low rate load of skid steers to go back I guess that explains it all.

    Been to more than a few jobs as of late where securement is questionable. Newly leased on drivers show up with 2 chains and 2 binders. They have a half a dozen straps that should have been thrown in the trash.
    The company leases on these people and never inspect their equipment. In an effort to cut cost safety dept is pretty much gutted.
    Now the company is wondering why their csa points are climbing up again.

    Figured I’d haul some more flatbed freight while I’m out here. I was heading that way anyway. EC3307B7-7C60-44DA-953F-17749055279C.jpeg

    That load was only about 9000 pounds. I had some gear in The deck boxes and neck I needed to get at after loading.
