There are several brokers on here listing the same loads, it's happening more than normal it's getting pretty crazy. Funny thing is all these loads they are listing you can get them yourself direct, don't be fooled.

I'm a broker. Doubt if anyone is posting the same loads I have. I need more shippers that are willing to pay. I always take the minimum commission. I just want to get the load moving

Here's an interesting tidbit/loophole we found out the hard way when an associate unfamiliar with the name or reputation released information to the wrong person:

These companies can get ahold of a list of jobs and repost it under their company name without permission. Why? Because no one said they couldn't.

Unless they are expressly told they cannot repost/rebroker the load list, they can advertise it any way they want to. I guess it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

all shippers are willing to pay if nobody loads and hauls it then they will pay.

Theres a bunch that do it all the time. And the person/company with the load will also have it posted. I just call around till i find the orginal costomer or best deal. TQl does it all the time. Or go to loads out of NC same loads posted over and over again. The ones that get me are the "brokers" or "dispacters" that post in the forum but never on the boards. When you call them they read it right of the load board line for line.

Daniel, the missouri board has several shipper direct which is commonly a norm on that board, but there's a few bad apples listing the same stuff for 1 to 5 cents per bushel cheaper. Good thing we are independents and can get it ourselves from the shipper on most of these. I feel bad for the new guys that don't know that game.
