    Look guys, I don’t think people here are trying to brag About their rates or bash to others for their rates . I think this conversation should be use to learn either way as something to do or not to do.
    In my case , as most of you guys know , I’m 100% independent O/O . When I accept a rate from brokers or shippers I don’t pay to anyone percentages or anything like that.
    I also do my best to get as much as I can for my services, so in times like this ( January-April) my rates are at least $3.00 per mile . Now, it can fluctuate depending if is Ice-cream or any other sensitive stuff , obviously I’ll try to get more .
    For instance, I booked a load -1 , 982 miles 2 stops . I started my pickup Wednesday before noon and I finished Friday 8 am empty.$ 3,000
    Friday, I drove towards my home , empty 190 miles . From there I booked a dry load, 41,000 lbs 1 pick 1 delivery 744 miles , I delivery today at 5 pm for $2200.
    So, basically 5 days of work (no really ) for $ 5,200 . Now, is that good ? Is that bad? All I know is that I don t know .
    But if you own your own business and if your rates are less than $2. You will pay later , believe me .
    So, let’s learn together.

    There. I'll go first. And I'm not certain why you are calling me a Zionist, and comrade. No one has called you any names. Unless you are angry and frustrated. Are you angry and frustrated? Do you really want to make the thread about me????

    We're simply looking for some facts. None of us have a problem posting them, because they define truth and reality.

    Now I will add that, that statement was part of our OM's master trip, so there's that.

    This has absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with the topic I'm involved in, so I feel safe in assuming this was directed at someone else.

    I heard President Trump might get the quarantine on reefers reduced to 6 weeks though.

    No it's directed directly at you, and your topic.

    We're not into spin. let's just stick to the facts. Show us a statement.
