  • February 2016 Trucking Freight Loads - Truckers Edge
    I wont haul thier freight when i see them playing the cutthroat truck aGainst truck game I bounced my truck from southern cal to denver last week because of this Reply Jake 2 27 2016 8 29 54 AM I don t know from where you get your data but the average per mile that truckersedge reports never been accurate We carriers know what the brokers pay and it is not even close to what DAT is reporting Reply Matt Sullivan 2 27 2016 1 30 09 PM Which lane would be a good example of this Hundreds of carriers and brokers are sending us their rates all of them after the transactions are official The rate that shows up for each lane that you search is an average price for the past 90 days so if the price on a lane moves drastically in one week it doesn t always show up in that 90 day average That s why we re do these blog posts for you guys Reply Chuck Carlson 2 28 2016 9 09 16 AM I believe there should be a blog or board for owner operators that we can post when we get our freight from the broker and post the rate along with the broker name we got it from That could possibly give everyone an advantage to get better rates Reply Jovey Marshall 2 27 2016 9 04 10 AM The one thing that I have to say about the rates are if broker puts certain amount of miles then it should be just that Not 235 miles further that just isn t right it s just like stealing Reply Chuck Carlson 2 28 2016 9 11 48 AM If you run across this then it is your responsibility to run the actual miles and tell the broker you are showing 500 miles and it s actually 625 miles so I need to be paid on the correct miles Make sure you do this prior to signing the rate con Reply Rayjae Transport Inc 3 19 2016 10 01 29 AM Come on Rookie go get an education before you conduct business with a freight broker that s the oldest trick in the book just like the man said that should be the first thing you do before even calling run the freaking miles man S head it s a no wonder this industry is s t Reply D 2 27 2016 1 10 35 PM It look like whoever wrote this not even in business Reply Fernando amador 2 27 2016 2 55 49 PM Yes is right dat puts a price per mile not even close to what we can get out there I don t go by that and if the rate is not what I want I don t pull if there is no money I don t move it at all Reply KAS TRANSPORT 2 28 2016 4 10 29 AM I agree totally One of the
