Stick to the interstate where your trucks can wreck and hopefully not hurt anyone!

Unfortunately, we do not have any asset hopper trucks, which is why I am reaching out to you guys to partner with. I am not apart of the asset division, strickly brokerage. I'm just looking for a carrier to partner with, make some money, make a carrier money and help my customer move these loads.

The problem with our low freight is that all these dryfrieght brokers think they can cut into our world. No different than TMC or TQL trying to be our brokers,cheap.

here's a ?, if a farmer sells grain to elevator, and the elevator turns around and sells it t o feedlot, can that farmer legally haul that load on just farm tags ?

I think the only way the farmer could take that load to the feed lot is if the Farmer sells the load to the Elevator but in the it states to deliever the load to the feed lot

As long as the grain is still on the farm The farmer can deliver it to the feedlot with farm tags however the farmer cannot pick up Grain at the elevator and deliver it to someone else's feedlot with farm tags

Dont like the fact , and have a bad gut feeling on this ad from J.B. Hunt. Dont trust it. Looks like a step in the direction for them to develope a hopper bottom division. If you think our rates are low now, wait till JBHunt starts showing up at harvest seasons, elevators and ports. There will be nothing left for O/O. JB Hunt has the deep pockets to shut us all down. Its frustrating enough to deal with the brokers who expect us to run @$1.00 to $1.40 pm...doing the math comes to $50K means we have to drive 50K miles...equals less than a company drivers wage. So if you think it can' get worse, wait till JB Hunt shows up.
