It’s a shame that both brokers and carriers have been ripping the owner operators off. I know of a large tanker outfit in Tampa Florida that hide their billing information from the owner operators even though in their contract it says they can review it. They have been skimming off the billing rate and at the bottom because top pay-to the owner operators is 70%. Also the owner operators used to fuel wherever they pleased now that’s out the window the company force them to only use Loves, T/A , Petro or Pilot so when they fuel the company gets a huge discount and only offer 10 cents off the cash price to the owner operators.
How is the company forcing the owner ops to fuel at certain vendors?
The only way I could figure was restrictions on fuel cards.
The solution, don't use company fuel cards. Get your own or pay cash.
If the company refuses to let you do that then you have a violation of the truth in leasing CFR's,
call the OOIDA and ask for an attorney referral.
