Grain Hauling and going broke

I’m new to grain hauling first off, heck new to trucking period. I hear people make $4000 weekly and seems like I can’t even get close to that most weeks. Can someone point me in a direction so I can make some money for myself and family. It seems like I may need to look into hauling something different but living in Kansas I thought grain hauling would be a good decision.

Local grain hauling in Kansas can be a tough market. Have you looked into hauling commodities or even aggregates? You might have to spend the night in the truck a few times per week.

Greetings Milton. I am a dispatcher that can assist with this issue, and can definitely get you rolling. Does this sound like something you might be interested in? Just thought I share some beneficial services with you.

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.

Unless you plan on going out 2 weeks at a time you wont make any money hauling grain. Even then its tough. Might make just enough to keep you hanging on thinking it might turn better. Not much on this board that seems to pay very well. Your best bet is to get in with a few loacal elevators and haul for them. I mainly use this board for a few back haul loads if i haul beans to Sioux City. Just to see if there is any fertilizer coming back. The elevator pays me a round trip but if i can sneak in a back haul or two sure helps out. Even with the dedicated work from an elevator its not a get rich deal. I have other trucks on the road pulling reefers and i just use the grain to keep me busy while i dipatch them. I have a buddy pulling a hopper and he goes east coast to west. North to south and he is barely making it. Not sure why he stays at it when i tell him he could pull one of my reefers and be home evey 5-8 days and make twice as much. If you need to be home every night the only way you will make money trucking is to find a nich market in uour area. Something not many people do but there is a need for. Eveyone has a hopper so rates will never come up. In trucking you have to think outside the box and seperate yourself from the crowd. Its not a get rich quick deal. It is very long term and when you just think things are looking up a $10,000 repair will hit you so be prepared. Hope this helps you out.

Quit using load boards for every load, the stuff that is typically posted on here is loads that brokers typically can not cover or the shipper has extra that needs moved and doesn't care how long it sits. You need to build a network up and form working relationships. Find either shippers or customers from cold calling and build that relationship or use a LICENSED AND BONDED broker and form a relationship with them to get the better paying loads. You also need to find your break even point (everyone says $2 but in reality it can be way higher or lower) and then figure out what you want to make above break even and only haul loads in that range as much as possible.

Forgot to mention. DO NOT hook up with a dispatch service. They will take there cut off an already low rate and leave you losing money on each load. Find the loads your self. If you cant do that then you shouldnt be trucking. Search the boards. Make lots of cold calls. Get on email lists and eventually you will plenty to do. Indidnt say it would pay great but you will be busy.

You might be too new to the game to tell but most of the people that reply on this forum are going to be brokers and they will help you find even more cheap loads. Brokers don’t have loads or trucks but they do have a cell phone and so do you. The difference is brokers use theirs to call shippers and you use yours to call brokers.

Haha! 2 weeks at time! You guys talking crap on hoppers. Must not know the hopper game all. There is big money in this. Big problem is no one wants to run. 600 mile round trip. On a Saturday paid the. Truck 3.85 a bushel. And I'm on the east coast. Pulling a hopper is not for pretend truck drivers. It's fast paced. A lot of folks their weekends are more important than their paychecks. Gotta be willing to run. Being a truck driver is not a Monday thru Friday job.

I didn't expect a response period because I don't believe his statement is true because according to safer, he doesn't have operating authority.

I don’t care what they call themselves as long as I get the rate I want, but I think the main reason your seeing that is because the traditional trucking model is changing and evolving, instead of leasing to a carrier folks are going out and getting their own authority and hiring someone to find freight for them. Competition in the market has finally caught up to the brokers in the digital age of the internet, the brokers are now experiencing what the carriers were experiencing back in the 90’s, completion for labor. It’s all about self preservation in the race to the bottom.

From what I see, farmers are a small percentage. Sure, there are plenty of them hauling without credentials and that degrades the rates. But what percentage of people hauling local are farmers? I'd guess 25 percent. That means 75 percent of the reason the rates are low is due to commercial carriers who refuse to accept the personal responsibility for their own shortcomings. It's much easier to blame someone else. People who claim the DOT waves the farmers through and let's them get away with any violation are making up stories to help keep the attention on others for their own personal failures. In 4 years I've never seen a dot cop fail to jump on the opportunity to overhaul anybody. I've talked to elevators and brokers asking about this. The ones I've talked to claim they've never once given a load to someone without operating authority....that means a carrier must be commiting to x number of these loads and brokering them out to farmers under the table.

Down here we have farmers with their own trucks that only use them to haul from the field to their tanks. They say they won't use them to haul grain out of the tanks because the rate is too low.

Dale this is how the misconception is. Many farmers will sell their grain to the local coop or grain merchandiser. Coop manager will just go and tell farmer, we will pay you abc whatever $ more if you haul it yourself to our end user. example ethanol plant or river port. Coop saves money not having to pay their employees to handle it. Plus many of the farmers would rather deal with it on their own schedules.

What was the company name on the bol? What elevator was the bol from? It's very possible I'm wrong. I've been wrong a million times. But I flat out do not believe you Greg. I'm in that area multiple times a week. Harvey, velva, Benedict, max, Minot, Stanley, powers lake and I don't ever see this farmer fleet. My guess is, a trucking company took the loads and is brokering them out to farmers without any brokerage credentials as well. Again, I could be wrong, I'm going to max on Tuesday, I'm happy to cruise by velva and have you show me in person . Because if it's happening on a large scale like some people claim, I'd love to be involved with putting a stop to something illegal.

I'm with you on that. Back when I farmed, the elevator gave me a 10 cent premium to go directly to the ethanol plant. But I owned it until it unloaded so it's legal. Plus, what commercial carriers is content to haul anything for 10 cents a bushel?

What does by the bushel have to do with anything? They sell the grain to one of the big ones. Rather than haul it out with their trucks, they let the company they sold to arrange to haul it out because what the buyer was paying was not enough for them to crank up their trucks..Makes plenty of sense to them, I guess.

Greg, I see your point that it's a gray area in your eyes for a farmer to haul that grain to adm like that. But it's their grain. In most cases it's coming right out of the field or bin. In my opinion there are very few cases of elevators hiring people without authority to haul grain for them on a for hire basis. And if someone wants a law passed to make it illegal for someone to truck their own grain.... well that's a level of liberalism I can't entertain. I'm not defending farmers, there definitely are some out there hauling illegal, the ones I've seen are getting loads brokered to them through trucking companies. Plus many farmer drivers are pretty aggressive and arrogant behind the wheel. My biggest annoyance in cities is traffic, my biggest annoyance in the middle of nowhere is a farmer running a stop sign in front of me , only to turn off that highway a quarter mile later, (which is the reason I take hwy 83 to max instead of 52, Greg will understand that one, but that's a separate argument. Long story short, hopper rates are low because there's tons of competition because there's the potential to be home more, and it's my opinion that the farmers are a tiny piece of that puzzle. If their really were all these fringe benefits to having a farmer plate and no insurance, why wouldn't you drop all of your credentials?

For the first time in many years trucking is getting to where the rates should have been over a year ago already. The bulk bussiness is accually having problems finding trucks now because the rates have lagged so far behiond everything else for far to long and lost a lot of haulers. Now the the rates are getting so good brokers are even appling for a CDL. (Thats a joke, we all know that will never happen.)

Greg, I will never believe a claim that's not backed up by evidence. Who owns the grain in their trailer? Someone else mentioned that the elevators may be having them take the farmers own grain directly from the field to velva and selling it in the elevators name. If so, it's the farmers grain. I also don't believe your claim that dot waves farmers by. I believe in personal responsibility and taking ownership of your own business. Take some responsibility and turn them in, or give me their info and I'll do it. But I don't expect you to have that information because it's not illegal for a farmer to haul their own grain. You are looking for someone to blame for your own difficulties. If I'm wrong, provide me the evidence and I'll own up to being wrong. I truck in those same place multiple times a week and don't see what you see and the elevators I talk to disagree with you as well. Respectfully, Dale Hermans, with an "s" at the end

Someone else mentioned that the elevators may be having them take the farmers own grain directly from the field to velva and selling it in the elevators name. If so, it's the farmers grain. I also don't believe your claim that dot waves farmers by. I believe in personal responsibility and taking ownership of your own business. Take some responsibility and turn them in, or give me their info and I'll do it. But I don't expect you to have that information because it's not illegal for a farmer to haul their own grain. You are looking for someone to blame for your own difficulties. If I'm wrong, provide me the evidence and I'll own up to being wrong. I truck in those same place multiple times a week and don't see what you see and the elevators I talk to disagree with you as well. Respectfully, Dale Hermans, with an "s" at the end"

Dump wheat. Load canola to velva.
