I just checke on a load from ADM broker that was paying 15 cents for a load of soybeans from Hampton Iowa to Des moines Iowa.

I have decided to block this broker for such low paying loads, and suggest everyone do the same. Local rates from Hampton to Iowa falls are .15 cents per bushel for only 33 miles. I hope no one is hauling frieght this cheap.

So long to this broker.

You don't understand how this works, so i will explain it. THE DIRT BAGS out there exploit mentally retarded people, and use them to sabotage the market, until it's destroyed, and then they take all of the money they cheated you out of, and they stick it away in the bank. That is until OBAMA comes along, and steals it from them, and uses it to pay for your health care, food stamps and heating assistance, LOL.

No see your math is way off. The guys with the extra axles can haul 96000 so they'll make the big money :)

Lol yeah. I have extra axles and at these rates I wish I didn't. Dead weight while I'm hauling dry van during the slump in rates on the hopper side. Had a broker call me to move ddgs 15 miles from where I live down south. I asked him the rate and he said it was $2.00 mile after I figured it. Then had to find something to get me back on my own. I told him the hopper has been parked back in the trees this year and the dry van has been parked in front of the house. He laughed and told me dry van rates are worse than hopper? I said pulling dry van I get paid per mile round trip and it was more per mile than he was paying one way and empty half the time. Plus I'm never over 80,000 and can roll the interstates. I will let the cheap haulers haul for peanuts. No more waiting in lines for 4+ hours and not getting paid. I get demurrage after two hours of waiting and so far it has only happened once this year.

Way to go Clint I remember when everybody was lauging at me for parking the hopper after August of last year and hooking back up to the vans.

I don't need those chicken lights that bad. LOL

Yep, low paying freight created the need for obama care, and big government. Thats why the feds won't go back to regulating trucking, becauase to many beurocrat's would be out of a job. So congradulations to all of you cheapskates out there who helped to turn america into a third world country, hope you have fun paying for everyone else's health care, LOL.
