Just wondering if anyone else sees the trend?  I am all for everyone making money.  I believe if eveyone is making some money the whole country works better.  I just wanted to give my opinion and does everyone notice that when it slows down your big dispatchers don't call often and their prices go down so it really don't bother you that their not calling?  Now it seems that it is going to pick up a little again and I don't know about everyone else but my phone has rang a few times.  30 days to get your money, 10 to 20 cents under where the rate should be and everyone goes back to helping them..  5% of 3.50/mile is 17.5 cents a mile and 5 % of 2.00 is 10 cents a mile...  They are doing pretty good fellas??  If we could all stick together we could get this industry back where it needs to be..  Please let us know your thoughts.

Your absolutely right. But with that being said they post loads and call people bc they will do the loads. That's just like a back haul rate what is that? They don't get paid a back haul by the people they haul for. The loads going to Augusta Georgia for Johnny out of Arkansas are paying 2800 to go and people do them every week. If people tell them no like you said it will correct itself. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
