Baxter & Bailey, it will cost a percentage of what they recover. TQL will drag it out to the very end and hope you'll just get frustrated and give up.
They will ding you with report, but i haven't found anyone that pay's attention to them.(other than holding hostage, double brokering, ect) i know we just laugh when a carrier has a bad report from them.
It's always best to not leave the original receiver before a USDA inspection, put's the claim between the seller and buyer then. As long as no temp issue.
