Guys it is time to step up the plate and set these other friggin idiot str8! Look, I am a truck broker. I am one of the few truck brokers that 99% of the people that haul for me never go anywhere else. I always thought it was somewhat humerous that truckers were cutting each others throats by cutting each others rates. Well let me twll you fellas, the trucker broker now is doing it to themselves as well. I have NEVER seen it like it isright now. As brokers, we should be stepping up to the plate and raising rates to keep the poor souls in business. $4.20 fuel!!!!!!!! Holy Christ! Why in the world would you idiots be cutting rates to screw the trucks when they need us more than ever. That is my companies philosophy, always was! Most of you guys have never heard of my company because we almost NEVER post our loads on the internet.....we have no need. We have trucks that are begging to haul for us in most cases. My companies rate right now is $2.00/mile MINIMUM or we wont take the damn order. What the **** is it with JJ Jerue, TQL (dont get me started on these ****ers), Allen Lund, and the countless other fly by night bastards that are chopping rates to gain "market share"????? Listen my company is only in produce, we do nothing else. We don't haul carpet, trees, meat, rubber dog shit outta China, nothing but produce. It is what we know, what we do, and do it very well. All I can say is ahul for whoever you want to, but remember the bastards that screwed you all winter when they chopped rates and stuck it to you. We (well produce haulers) know the summer season is coming up and it is going to get busy and rates are gonna get stupid high....THEY ****ING HAVE TO! Pardon my french, but come on fellas, rmember these other idiots when business is rolling and turn around and stick it to them. Ch Robinson actually got there head outta their hinney and form what I hear in alot of cases is paying somewhat decent rates.....WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT WOULD EVER HAPPEN!!!!! I will say this, we are in the top 5 produce brokers outta California and AZ, and you haven't heard of us. Why because we don't actively search for trucks or post bullshit cheap loads. If you agree great, if you think all brokers are evil thats fine too, but I have guys that have dumped their direct business to haul for me and make MORE money thru me going to the same damn palce. Good luck to you all, stay with the fight of staying in business and give the finger to cheap frieght!
