    UIIA has nothing to do with it. It's the shipper or steam line. They will determine payment. If they have good credit you can factor it for faster payment

    UIIA is not a load board. It stands for Uniform Intermodal Interchange Agreement. It was set up to keep chassis and container haulers/owners on the same page as far as insurance and what not.
     
    Y-L Thanks this.

    Call the steam lines. Most won't deal with less than 10 trucks
     
    Y-L Thanks this.

    Would J.B. or hub be an option?

    If you're going that route, they already have the SCAC/UIIA. Check the intermodaI forum for Chicago work

    As a carrier running your own authority you would go direct to the steam line like Evergreen or Hapag Lloyd or Maersk etc. JB or Hub will give probably half of what the load actually pays. I think Chicago is more rail but I don't know. If you want rail cans you have to go to Union Pacific or Norfolk Southern or CSX I guess. Or, find the people sending the freight and do the deal with them. That is your best bet. Locate the shippers and work direct. No middleman means you keep the money
