Rates are on a rise for a number of trucking categories, but relationships with brokers remain strained. Over the past few years, small fleets and owner-operators have been burned by brokers offering rates that approach unprofitable, while others take a long time to provide payment for the jobs completed. Fleets and owner-operators alike are looking for a more transparent solution that will allow them to work without losing money in the process.
More than Just Electronic Job Boards
The trucking industry needs something that goes beyond job boards that list shipments. Sometimes one job is listed multiple times and with conflicting information. Other times, jobs that have already been taking by one carrier is not taken down, creating confusion. Fleets and owner-operators need a dispatching service that will curate jobs and then look into the details so carriers know what the shipment entails.
Rates that Favor Carriers
Too many times in the past, fleet owners and independent drivers have to deal with brokers who do not communicate details about shipments or how many layers there are between the estimated rate and what is actually being paid. If brokers know that rates favor shippers – which was evident in much of 2019 – they will often low-ball carriers. The trucking industry needs a dispatching service that will not only find jobs, but also negotiate to get carriers the best rates possible with complete transparency. This would go a long way toward reducing less-than-ethical agreements between brokers and their clients.
