    What are the risks of double brokering (broker - carrier - carrier)?

    Risk for who? Biggest risk is pissing off the client.

    I'd never work with you again. I'd also pull you off the load so fast your head would spin.

    I actually kind of see it as stealing from the final carrier. You're taking capacity you can't handle and then taking a cut anyway.

    I don't plan to double broker. Is it illegal? Or just immoral?

    If it were illegal TQL would be out of business.
