    Hey folks - hope your new year is going well.

    This one isn’t about a carrier, but none other than big Anheuser-Busch itself (and I apologize if this is in the wrong place).

    To any O/Os booking loads (specifically) with Denver/Aurora/Fort Collins AB, be aware;

    Without question, they are triple and quadruple booking these loads through 3-4 brokers, taking the cheapest truck that shows up for the appointment, then screwing over the other trucks (I’ve seen as many as 7 trucks, all there for the same load). It’s happened to me 6 of 11 AB loads this year (twice in 24 hours).

    This is obviously not a new scam, but it has completely wrecked my next reloads and my weekend - so I wanted to save anyone else the headache.

    Be advised, I’ve only been able to get a TONU one time, and it was for $150, after wasting an entire day. It is happening through UberFreight, Coyote, and Convoy. They’re all aware of it, but they are clearly not holding AB accountable.

    Good luck drivers, and y’all be safe out there.

    Come on man lol, I ain’t wearing my cup!!

    I meant 11 times “within the last year”. I’m based out of Denver, so sometimes it’s worth throwing the dice to avoid having to deadhead out, or haul $.99 per mile loads.

    I got ya.....I guess it would be different if you were deadheading to get it.
    But it seems like AB pretty much sucks just about anywhere you go.
    They burned me in Jacksonville a couple of years back and I said never again.
    Kinda like Amazon.
     
    TheBigCajun, sevenmph and Lonesome Thank this.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but I'll bet you a dollar AB isn't the one quadruple brokering those loads.

    quit hauling that cheap and heavy freight then! let the #### rot at the loading docks till it pays better. Maybe when their rotgut beer cant get to market they will pay better. But really there is no one to blame but us drivers!
