    Yeah I hadn't either. I usually get the job done with people I already know, DAT, Loadmatch or Truckstop. I was getting desperate so I just started pumping keywords into Google and got that site. I'm sure it's useful to many but there was so much TQL stuff on there posted six ways from Sunday... Felt kinda dirty posting up there.

    Sad part is someone will take those garbage loads...
    Thankfully our hopper work is all direct no scumbag middle man involved.

    Thank you! My Congresswoman sent me a letter asking what she could do for me. My reply was,

    Government mandated detention for shippers, receivers, and brokers.

    A business that is in business to ship and receive freight that doesn't have it together(not enough help) to load and unload trucks in a timely manner is just taking advantage of the driver's time
     
    AaronP, TallJoe and Rideandrepair Thank this.

    Its hard to feel sorry for you my friend, there are warning signs at every turn what you can expect dealing with tql . 9 out on 10 of thier employees dont even complete training before they quit. The one that does is because he is morally bankrupt. TQL posts loads in every category of trucking even if they dont have the loads lol. It seems their first goal is to get you signed on .
