    They've got a load posted from the Knoxville, TN area to up near Denver, CO. Good rate but when when I called they said that was for the hazmat load and if I wasn't hazmat the rate was $1000 (with some room) less. Hazmat isn't listed anywhere on the posting. Not a huge deal as far as scummy broker moves go but still an irritation and a poor way to do business.

    I've seen Trinity pull this little number a few times. I report them to ITS for it. Whether they do anything about it or not is another story.

    I've hauled quite a few loads for them. One thing is for sure - if it says San Antonio, it's actually going to be Laredo. Pretty stupid, but easy to avoid loads like that.

    I've pulled a few for them too that were no issues. One was from downtown Cleveland to Washington DC after the presidential debate. Paid pretty well too. Doubt I'll see a rate like that again in a few years.

    I've pulled a few loads for them and it's they have been pretty fair. Paid quickly and easily every time. I don't know why they would sour their name with ######## moves like this. Laredo is definitely not San Antonio and anybody (probably everybody in this forum) knows it.

    Yeah, I actually like Trinity. Their brokers are adults usually, with many years of experience, working with shippers they have ten+ year relationships with. It's good.

    But when I'm trying to get out of San Antonio, and they've got a load leaving there, I've learned to ignore it.
     
    ProfessionalNoticer Thanks this.
