Discussion in 'Double Broker List' started by LOOKING, Jul 27, 2015.
I have 6 invoices from 2017 averaging 53 days for payment if that helps. i can't comment on service.
It's been a year since the last post. Any recent payment trends on Keena?
I wouldn't give em my freight if they had the last truck on earth !.. learned my lesson with them years ago ! lie after lie...
Anyone have any recent dealings with Keena? Have they been paying better?
Received a cheque from Keena a couple days later. Total of 93 days.
Keena owes us an invoice that is over 90 days. Lots of excuses but none really worth repeating.
Chris at Keena has been arrested (details removed by Moderator). Some of Keena's ex dispatch staff have approached us about work over the years and it is a nasty place to work (based on what we are told about previous employer). They back door people, Chris back doored with Global believe it or not. They have had more labour complaints then any other trucking company I believe.
I heard that one driver had a heart attack in the US and the lady that runs runs Keena blamed that heart attack on the driver not the fact he was doing manual labour for Keena.
Keena is the same as Strada they do the same tactics. They lost us a large account for claiming bad credit and demanding payment before they would deliver. Then upon payment they didn't deliver. How are these clowns still in business is beyond me.
Customers closing up shop (or witholding payment for months and years) should not affect payment to you...
Unfortunately a few years ago we saw a few customers close, it had no impact on our responsibility to our suppiers. Every carrier that hauled for those cusotmers was paid (perhaps a little slower than they liked, but it's our obligation to pay for agreements fulfilled). Otherwise as a carrier you would have to approve the creditworthiness of the brokers customer before every shipment you picked up... I'm not sure that would happen anytime soon...
We even did a load for them and never got paid.
They said they did not get paid from their customer so they not going to pay.
We lost our largest customer because of Via Strada. They pick up your load then tell you your credit wasn't approved & hold it for ransom until you pay. Worst carrier I've ever dealt with in 15 years.
You may want to look at the customs documents and look to see whose barcode sticker is on it. That's the clue. If it's going to the US, look at the PAPS sticker - if coming to Canada, look at the PARS sticker. Both will tell you what company is moving it. If it's anything other than who you booked with and not otherwise advised, raise hell.
Agreed - Both TDS and F1 are wonderful providers. I'd add Carmen Cartage to the list of amazing FL LTL providers if I may.
Keep well all,
FL - Carrier reference
F1 - have used them numerous times - competitive rates and no issue with service. In addition, you receive an automatic e-mail once the shipment has been picked up and/or delivered.
TDS is a great carrier. Our first "go to" carrier for any area they service.
For Florida freight at TDS speak with Jamie or Dan @ 905.677.5549
From what I understand they go twice a week departing on the weekend and Tuesday's.
Who's your contact at TDS? I'd like to get to know them and see what they can do for me.
I have a load that delivered last month I suspect they double brokered. I'd like to pay the rightful carrier that they double brokered the load to so that carrier doesn't get stiffed. Of course I can't get the paperwork so don't knwo who it is. Anyone know who they double broker to on a regualr basis?
We have 3 to 5 trucks a week in Florida always looking for LTL back anywhere along 75 and 95. We use to deal with Keena and Blue Line and could not stand the attitude so we started sending our own down.
The bottom line here is that Keena double brokered the load on the party that gave it to them with out the paying parties knowledge to benefit Keena and no one else. Then when it all fell apart Keena walked away as if they hadn't any part in what was going on. That is what the originator of the thread is concerned about.
Keena is not the only company running Florida with LTL. We've had great success with TDS in Mississauga. They have regular service schedules and do a good job for us without the "attitude".
