Doing to some research and want to make sure the Dry Bulk is being given bidded at a fair price for the drivers. What are we seeing as far as a per mile rate when it comes to dry bulk/pnuematics?

Depends on what part of the country you are in and what industry you are hauling for, what part of the country are you in? -John [email protected]

If your doing serious research you should really call some of the brokers that have loads posted on this site.

First you need to know that most of those trucking stories are just that. Trucking stories. This last year in the hopper bisiness has almost become a joke compared to just about any other freight out there when it comes to rates and getting jacked around. I learned this year that it isnt even that hard to stumble upon something such as a hobby to do and is a lot more fun that even pays better than pulling a hopper. Everything related to operating a truck has gone up considerably this year. Not just fuel like a lot of people think is the only thing to factor into any type of rate increase. With cost of things that have gone up year after year to operate and the little increase the drivers have got over the last 20 years does not make up for the increases of living on the road and operating a truck. For example, new equipment alone has doubled in price in the last 20 years and the equipment is less dependable and loses value much faster than the older equipment ever will. when you put the pen to paper trucking companys and drivers have been taking a little bit of a pay cut about every year for the the last 20 years for sure.
