Sure thing i could make that happen in Portland.

The rate would be $750 per day per trailer for storage. The frieght from Portland to Caldwell would be $1350 or $45 ton with a 30 ton mini rate. These are 53' 4 axle belt trailers 30-32 ton capacity.

Farmer or loading party would need to have a $1 miliion GL policy with non owned trailer coverage in the amount of 50k. My company to be listed as cert holder and loss payee.

The freight rate would include up to 2 hours unloading after that it would be $75 per hour.

Since this comes from TQL all funds would need to be paid before trailers are dropped via wire transfer.

References available upon request.

No need for PM lets have all communication on this forum so the carriers can see the value of TQL as a broker.

Respectfully submitted for your review.

Good Morning Phil,
Customer wants 4 trailers taken to a field and for those trailer to sit there for 3-5 days during harvest to be loaded. Then at the end of the 3-5 days they want a driver to come back to the field, pick up the loaded trailer and drive it to Caldwell. Basically "drop trailer." Please shoot me an email or give me a call [email protected] or 800-580-3101 ext 54808 Thank you so much.

I have to clear every rate with the customer. If you have available equipment, give me a call. Ton weight was posted, trailers will be loaded to 25-26 ton.

Typical TQL! Post something vague and let someone else do their work for them! From my dealings with this company, they have no clue how to figure rates! Your rates should be set before you go out looking for trucks! Just so sick of this type of crap!!!

Thank you so much for your comment Keith with ET Trucking. I called to offer you a rate. Its unfortunate that you are so ticked off that you wouldn't listen.
Thank you so much Jim with Jim & Kristy Milne Trucking. I called and left a voicemail for you. If you would like rate please give me a call back.

No you did not call with a rate, you called to defend trying to get your work done! If you had the loads and work booked the Oregon work would not be a no go! I have personally seen this with TQL agents in the past where they call for rates, then take those rates and look to get them done cheaper by other trucks than the ones that bid! Its the old bait and switch!

I could give a crap less about your company! Keep on driving the rates down!!! Hopefully you put enough trucks out of business and then the reputable companies can get back to making a living!
