When I see backhaul lets me know whomever wants the load done cheap. My question:Is the responsibility any less? Is the insurance less? Is the cost of fuel any less? All the expenses are the same. When loaded. A load is a load. Regardless. We need to stop hauling cheap, we're only cutting each other's throat in the long run. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Too many cut throats out there. It will never stop, especially when you have brokers involved in the game. Too many guys out there in debt over their ass and have to move. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

It will never stop. The buyers ask dispatchers for trucks that will do them. And most everyone will do them if they are worth it. For example I am out of Le Mars,IA if I take a fat load from NW Iowa down to Dodge City for a full rate then get a Load back out of KS somewhere that is going to Northeast Nebraska or Northwest , Iowa for 3.30per mile why pass it up? All you are really out of is time.

Yes sir as always the middle men (brokers ) seem to always be greedy. No matter what business there in . Always raping the laborers who do the physical work.

The biggest mistake guys can do is ever let a broker or any possible customer know there looking for a load to get " back " aka " back haul " once they know your trying to get to a certain place then they know you'll be willing to do it for less then the other guy. I don't fault anyone broker or otherwise for trying to get it moved for less to increase there profit that's business 101. I am always trying to get as much as possible to increase my profit and if I did the leg work to build the relationship with a customer to have extra loads to move I would offer em for a fair rate but bet your ass if driver A was willing to do it for less then driver B and everything else being equal why wouldn't I use driver A and put the extra profit in my pocket? It all boils down to when negotiating rates you need to know your numbers and take in consideration all other factors and know your bottom rate but always ask for as much as possible and never take less then your worth!!! Just my thoughts lol and I hate the term back haul as well no such thing in my world!!
