    OWNER OPS: you will go broke here. The company doesn’t shoulder any of the burden—that’s not a partnership worth cultivating. Literally all expenses are pushed off onto you at a premium upcharge. They markup everything, they don’t pass off their fuel discounts to you (you’ll pay pump price). They lease the trailers for a few hundred a week, they’ll charge you 450 plus; you’re responsible for all of the maintenance costs; 2% off of the 12% to the company pays the dispatcher; .70-.80+ a gallon discount they get on fuel you’ll never see, 2290s aren’t 550 but that’s what they’ll charge you, their ELDs aren’t 500 but that’s what they’ll charge you; they charge you to pay you, I could go on for days. Last week my check was - negative 750 bucks, and I don’t even have a truck payment lol. I had to pay the company to haul freight! They’re absolute frauds. They “clean loads” through other brokers to give you a cut rate while they surreptitiously take even more off of the top… Avoid.

    When it comes to Chicagoland 1099 outfits it’s VERY easy,if the Bad Company forum is any indication! Usually the worst horror stories are fleece purchase rackets are out of Cook County.
