We are currently building the largest coalition of Independent drivers and we need you NOW! Our system is built to hold 7 million Shippers and 500,000 Carriers. Imagine being on a load board of only Independent Carriers and being bigger than the largest Brokers in the Country, this is exactly what we are going to do but, we need you NOW! Very soon we will easily be able to take Shippers from any Broker. Brokers can’t compete with you directly and with all of you (or even 25% of you) on one load board. Shippers will have no choice but to move their freight with you on the NoBrokerFreight load board.
Brokers control Shipper pricing and Carrier pay by controlling capacity. No Broker Freight is turning-the-tables on the Brokers and giving the Independent Carriers the capacity control and handing them back the Trucking Industry. In the beginning we had about 3,000 loads per week from 4 very large Corporations but, because we did not have enough Independent Carriers they temporarily pulled their loads. Shippers don't want supply chain problems with the Brokers moving their freight as a result of switching to NBF. Shippers love what we stand for, they are happy to support Independent Carriers and THEY ARE COMING BACK AS SOON AS WE HAVE ENOUGH CARRIERS. So naturally you can see the dilemma - Without a higher volume of Carriers, Shippers are holding back loads. We now have hundreds of small Shippers that post freight but even more that are waiting for us to get more of you on the board so their freight will move when posted.
We launched the July Special because we need as many Carriers on board as quickly as possible. 100% of your 1st month Membership goes to pay for getting new Shippers on the load board. We and all Independent Drivers need your support. It only costs $39.99 to change your future.
THE SEPTEMBER SPECIAL!
$39.99 for your first month and get 4 months FREE
Move all the freight you can for 5 months


MAKE SURE TO ENTER PROMO CODE: 1017 FOR 4 FREE MONTHS

You will pay nothing else until we have great freight volumes on the load board

how is it no broker freight? you will be charging for the service the same as a broker charges for their service. and as I recall just in the last couple weeks they busted a company for running the same style scam as this.

What happens if the shipper decides to not pay? They could come up with phoney "conceiled damage" claims and repeat the process with a new driver every load.

Do you have any idea what your broker is taking from you.There are no brokers on our site. I am sorry you think this is a scam. You will here about us and eventually use our system when 75% of ALL freight is on our system. As for the shipper not paying? You would probably want to use a factoring company if this concerns you. We have not heard of any problems but you never know. Brokers can do the same thing too!!

I agree with Long Haul Driver. NBF is providing the technology to become the "MIDDLE MAN" AKA THE BROKER. What is it Shawn Hamilton?? Is it better in your pockets then theirs? Is your goal to put thousands of decent hard working people trying to earn a decent living out of jobs? FYI as brokers we are obligated to pay the drivers for their work ITS THE LAW. We had a client last year who declared bankruptcy and we had To pay the carrier from our own pockets! NBF can't seem to even get the carriers a load according to Tine 99. At least when the trucks are using the brokers we guarantee that they will get paid. Your sore ass response was to get a factoring company....WTF?????

NO BROKER FREIGHT HAS THE RIGHT IDEA. INDEPENDENT
CARRIERS CAN CONTROL THE FREIGHT JUST LIKE THE TRUCKING COMPANIES. THAT MIGHT BE THE ONLY WAY TO GET YOUR FUEL SURCHARGE, BECAUSE THE BROKER WON'T GIVE IT TO YOU. OTHERWISE THE LONG HAUL DRIVER WILL NEED TO HAVE ITS OWN SALES TEAMS WORKING ADHEAD OF THE TRUCK, CALLING EVERY SHIPPER AND CONTACT BUILT UP OVER A COUPLE OF YEARS TO FIND FREIGHT. EITHER WAY THIS IS A HARD JOB ON THE SMALL TRUCKING COMPANY EVEN IF THEY HAVE A GOOD FACTORING COMPANY.

I signed up and just like a previous post, I have not found any freight that helps. Unless I want a 300 mile empty run to get freight with target money listed at or below the rate I have been paid via brokers. Seems like a joke to me!

I'm a shipper. I got on the site to cut my cost by going directly to the source the driver... where the rubber meets the road. My brother drove longhaul his whole life till his passing... so I know what kind of life it is.. I know that the more you put in the drivers pocket the better the relationship between shipper and customer. I've tried several times, with no sucess, to contact these folks at nobrokerfreight to let them know that I have had brokers contact me directly from this site... they got my information off this site and called me to see if they could broker my freight...!!!!!!? i could do that myself

We are a trucking company in Ky. The concept is right, it will just take time and all moving parts lining up at the same time to work. I signed up about 6 weeks ago with the promotional code and there isn't much freight but they have to start somewhere. With everyone and their brother becoming a freight broker, the industry needs to draw the line somewhere. If brokers would disclose and not keep rates private then maybe truckers wouldn't be so disgusted with them. Shippers know what they pay--truckers know what they get so why are brokers not willing to send the actual shippers price on rate conf.. I don't think truckers whould be upset if brokers took $50 to $100. off say $1000. load, just be fair..I have a friend who is a broker in another state, she tells me most of the tricks but anyone who has been around and used brokers knows them. Some brokers call companies and drivers 4 and 5 times a day and feel this is okay, then they constantly say my customer, my customer, when what they really mean is my $$$, my $$$, they have no more personal relationship with that shipper than we do, most just work off of load lists or jump ball freight. We had a broker call us on the emergency # at 2am in the morning to see if the driver was on schedule, that is unacceptable, and because there are so many independents who need to make a living, and brokers phones ring off the hooks, they feel they have the market cornered... and can treat the drivers like crap. The industry has to get smarter, truckers could control this market if they would work together, and make a great living.

I think this nobrokerfreight site is what we are moving towards, truckers have had it and if technology keeps improving forward it will eventually happen, where brokers will move lower and lower volumes of freight.

I personally hope this site works and truckers make lots more $$$$$$. I told one of our direct shippers about it. Hope they use it in the future. Believe it or not, shippers that I talk to get ticked off when they hear how much brokers are taking from the trucks. Sorry this was such a long post....

Trusty1, I agree with what you are saying. What I'm saying is if they intend to build the program it starts on the ground floor. I think the concept is wonderful and hope it takes off like gangbusters and drivers get thier fair share and brokers realize the pie is big enough for all. My concern is that if they want this to work they should focus on customer service. I have called six times and sent seven emails... over the past month.. not one response!!! it is only going to be as good as they make it. I'm sure if I had sent one email or one call to a broker they would have worn me out with calls and emails..... if your a driver and dispatch never communicates with you... then you don't drive for them long!call nobrokerfreight today or send them an email. when they respond let me know.. better yet if they respond tell them to give me a call. that may be my best chance of hearing from them.

I see some of you guys already tried them out and I do not hear nor read any POSITIVE feedbacks, ouch... If this the way they started, I am afraid they ain't going too far. Some of you here advocate them that concept is good, I want to give a analogy of concept: Communism was pretty good concept also, but we all know what happened. Good luck to all truckers and keep on driving...!

I signed up and when I used it there was not a single load that was not a market load, which they say can be a brokered load. I put some parameters in and came up with nothing, then I searched for any load leaving within the largest radius possible from Ohio and going anywhere, the dates I put in included an entire month. I still came up with only market loads. I think it is a scam and I am not a broker writing this, I would love to sign up for a no broker load board that was not a scam. It is true you could deliver a load and not get paid, that is the cost of being in business the extra money you make should make up for that. The technology exists now to eliminate a great deal of the brokers and I will sign up with a company that is trying to do that, but I will look into it a little deeper to make sure it is not a scam. No Broker Freight, if you are not a scam why can't I log into your sight I paid my fee and was told I would be signed up until you did your million dollar per month marketing blitz.
