You guys hauling around 4.50 or less are hurting everybody including yourself and if you’re leased on to someone and don’t realize 15% or 17% on 50-75 cents isn’t much money to the guy who owns the trailer but it’s a lot to the guy who’s owns the truck, if this doesn’t make sense to you than you might want to rethink what you’re doing REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

I've always been told that no hand should ever run his truck for a mileage rate that is less than the cost of a gallon of fuel. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

I 100% percent agree. If it doesn’t pay $5.50 a mile, with an 100 mile minimum and prorated over 50,000 pounds my trucks are sitting in the barn. We see these guys cutting the rates and in a years time they are broke, their equipment is worn out and they don’t have enough money to fix it. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
