    Did you check DAT on the lane? Was your rate near their guesstimation?

    No I didn’t check DAT, I don’t need someone or something telling me what I should charge.

    So if I am understanding this right, someone really pulled that load for $1,600? I would hate to know how many miles that trip was.

    Correct.

    I watched another story which profiled a man from Wuhan China. He owns a sit down and catering restaurant.

    Prior to the lockdown by the government, he was preparing for a major Chinese Holiday which generates a lot of revenue for him.

    He ordered in $11,000 (dollar equivalent) of fresh supplies, then was ordered to shutdown, unbeknownst to him.

    The government is "reopening" the area now. When he was allowed back in, all of the product he ordered was spoiled and had to be thrown out.

    In addition, he is still being restricted from in store sit down service, and can only do carry out or delivery service.

    He is, for all intents and purposes, dead in the water. As are hundreds of thousands of small businesses in our own country now.

    Here's the clip of the man from Wuhan China. It's not that long. Give it a watch, if you want. It's pretty devastating.

    I clicked on the " View Similar Offers" tab in your post, nothing happens, maybe that's your problem? :Tongue in cheek:
