Because the brokers are paranoid that someone will poach their work by undercutting the posted rate. I get it to a point, but most of these load postings are soo vague that we waste our time calling or emailing on dead end work.

I wondered this immediatley after creating an account. In other industries I've been in, if you didn't post a rate, nobody would call. Seems very shady and manipulative to not stand behind your rate, requiring the driver/dispatcher (who already does all the leg work to actually drive/move the load) to take that extra step.

Some of us have been beating that drum for years. My solution was to get off Bulkloads and quit giving them my money. But I’m the lucky guy. I got into a good dedicated gig. Not everybody can find that… now I just pop back in once and a while just to see what everyone is whining about. Lol.

If they would put a red star by all loads paying over 3.50 a mile blue star for 2.50 to 3.50 then brokers can still conceal rate but gives companies a little something to work with when putting routes together

Just like a car dealership, post a vehicle online and say "call for price." Only for you to find out the price is ridiculous and now they have your number and will call you about every other vehicle they get to see if you're interested. Just post the price, I'll reach out if I'm interested.

I have loads posted up all the time and I hear the same old thing about how you'd rather sit on your a** and not work than haul for under $4 a mile.

I guess they do that to feel relevant. So they have to waist time answering the phone all day but getting nothing accomplished.

Funny how trucking generally has this a** backwards. Who's selling what to whom?? You sound like beggers.

Fuel 3.50 I guess you and you computer don't have to buy it. Pay what's its worth nothing is worth under 4.00 a mile
