There are about 30 Cross Country Transport companies listed in safer sys, so you would have to know which one it is. Do you have a copy of their bond? If not it will be listed on the FMCSA site. Call the bonding company and tell them you have a claim to file on that particular company's bond. They will ask you if this is ag related in anyway because if it is, the bond doesn't cover it. If not ag related, ask the bonding company for a claim form. They will send it to you, fill it out and follow their instructions for accompanying paperwork that is needed. Send it back and then wait for an answer. Filing on a bond doesn't guarantee payment but it does send shockwaves thru the offending comany. I would bet you will get a phone call shortly after you file.. From past experience you have about a 50/50 chance of getting the claim honored.

Like Duane said, don’t get your hopes up. I tried to file on American Petrolog a couple years ago. The bond company is more like an arbitrator. In my case I went directly to the shipper and picked up about a $250k per year direct customer. Sometimes karma works it all out for us.

Didn't get paid ? that sound's like cherney commodities. they owed me over $30,000 and their bond company denied my claim. Had to sue cody cherney. I got about half of it so it's always "buyer beware". I noticed he is back on this board shipping loads again and trucker's are hauling it,simply amazing.

Best thing is to credit check anybody before you will haul for them. Then you can make a sound judgement call and then you will eliminate the need for this type of question in the first place.

We had a customer we worked for direct for years. Big company also. They had a regime change and our relationship started going bad but they always paid. They chose not to pay one single invoice and kept paying following invoices for other work. I called and spoke to them and kept getting the run around and finally called twice a day and just bugged the hell out of them and threatened to send them to collections and they just couldn’t figure out why I threatened to do this. They paid the outstanding invoice. I still haul for them. I thought we had a better relationship than that but now they don’t even realize when I bid work for them I upped my rates and making better now than I ever thought I could. This is one a direct customer and not a broker mind you. Provide good service. Stick to your guns and 9 out 10 times doing the right thing will pay off for you. Just my 2 cents. Good luck
