Dry Van Flatbed and Reefer rates have climbed up 25-35% why don’t livestock rates do the same? REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Because only in the cattle business, we see guys begging for driving jobs. There is a huge number of people willing to work for very little money so long as they can haul cattle in a Peterbilt 389 and pull a trailer with a hundred lights. Also, in this business, the vast majority of the loads are controlled by very few individuals. Reefers are grossing $8500 - $14,000 per week since June of last year on 3500-4200 miles per week. How does cattle hauling compare. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Because livestock haulers are just dumb. Drag a specialized trailer and only charge a bobtail rate. Then let the Packers set the rate for fats. The rash of brokers have got freight hauler Mentally and only offer a one way rate, some idiot takes it to get home. Doesn't take a MBA to know why there are so many 2-3 year old chromed out trucks and trailers for sale. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
