I Tim Harris think that all trucking companys should let their drivers get there own loads when the companys don't have loads for them they would make more money to put back into their companys plus get rid of all of the log books and computers and tracking devices in all of their trucks around the nation.also I think that all trucking companys should get together and fight the Government to get rid of the dot and also get rid of all the state scales across the us and just let the drivers alone to do their jobs.I ALSO BELEAVE THAT we need to get rid of the CDL ALTOGETHER AND JUST HAVE ONE License for every body.because you do not need a CDL TO DRIVE A TRUCK SCREW THE GOVERNMENT
First of all Tim you're not looking at the big picture; If the companies can't find you any freight what makes you think you can?

I've watched drivers make that Boo-Boo mistake over and over again,
they run out and buy a truck then get their own authority only to end up like an amateur fisherman trying to catch fish with the wrong bait.

How many people does it take to operate a semi/tractor/trailer?

There's no-way a driver can do it by himself.
You won't be able to chase down the freight if you don't own it.

Cont: They key to the whole trucking industry is "FREIGHT-FREIGHT-& MORE FREIGHT"........If you own it it makes it even better!!!
The big problem for the drivers and most small trucking companies is the "Logistics Man in the Middle".

Too many hands in the cookie-jar somebody's going be left with all the crumbs, now who do you think that is? Go ahead take a guess?
Thank-God the gov-ment is involved because if they weren't you would have dead drivers hauling to much weight and rolling over because they can't stop, Hauling forbidden Hazmat materials, don't forget food is hauled by trucks too.

So the federal gov-ment actually helps and protects the drivers as well as the public.

When you sit, and Tim I know you're not a truck/driver, but when you sit; you're company truly doesn't have a load for you.

Cont: You should always choose a company that owns their own freight.
Reason, chances of sitting are slim unless doing a 34hr reset.

Companies you should never have to sit with are;

JB Hunt
NFI-National Freight Inc:
Schneider-National
Swift
Prime-Inc:
Werner-Enterprise
US-Express-Inc:
Marten-Trucking
New Century-Transport
Con-Way Trucking
Fed/Ex
UPS
ABF
Yellow/YRC
Tyson
Knight/Transportation
Heart/Land Express
Celadon/Trucking
Saia
Wal*Mart
These Companies you should never have to sit unless you're out of hours.
They own they're freight and the brokerage, they broker freight out to trucks that have to sit.

O/operators night-mare.
Buying a truck thinking you can run like you want,
you have to have the freight 1st, buying the truck is the EZ part once you have the freight.

A freight broker gets rich by making the trucker broke er. Why is it that you never see freight brokers with their own equipment. They can't afford their own rates.
I am an asset based agent, so to say all brokers are bad is so not true..you have the option to not take the load or negotiate a better rate. I offer trucks no less than what I would run my truck for, and I work with a select few brokers who really take care of me. So just because there are a few who arent good look for the ones that are!

Non competes do not stand up in court. These are a companies way of trying to hold employees with fear.

This sounds like a great opportunity but if I was to bring all my freight with me I could be sued by my current employer. Are you willing to pay my leagal bills if they do. Or maybe you don't ask your brokers to sign a no compleat contract. Anyway it makes it difficult for people to do what you are asking them to do.

I just sold my freight brokerage and book of business about 10 months ago. I have a verifiable customer base that produced $2-$3M annually in gross revenue. My agents averaged about 27% of the load. I am not prohibited by a Non Compete so I might be willing to provide it to a freight agent or brokerage for the right price. If you interested in something for a few hundred dollars this wont be for you. I sold the brokerage which was nothing more than my authority and book of business for $375K. If your interested in what I have contact me through my website http://freighttraining.com

Thanks

Don,t haul cheap freight, the best way to make a broker go speechless is to tell them to run their cheap freight on their own trucks.. Love it when a rookie says but I don,t own a truck, and I say exactly

Actually, the main reason for a lot of the cheap freight in the USA is not due to the broker. This is principally the fault of the carrier not knowing how to bid his lanes properly and / or a lot of carriers that will run for pennies on the dollar. I owned a small fleet before I focused strictly own brokerage and never had a problem with good paying freight. You will also find the majority of the cheaper freight comes from the larger brokerage houses like CH, TQL etc.

If you're such a great broker, why do you need to supplement your income by charging people for training?

Why not? I would be a fool not too. I created a great training program that people are successful with. I am not an idiot, I am not going to give away my time nor my skills. I am a capitalist, you most likely are one of the people out there that want everything for free. Well go find it for free and see how much money you make LOL. I am great at what I do, I help make others money. They can either pay me for my time or push on. Wal-Mart is hiring.
