    Yes, I was posting for another person, apparently the freight delivered several days late and with a different carrier.
    I just checked back with them, thanks for asking.

    Did anyone take 1 skid from Ventureline (VTL), would have picked up in GTA this week, going to Ellis Don Construction, Women's Hospital, Winnipeg,
    If so please call Gabe at 416-388-8700. Ventureline (VTL) has stopped communication and they need to know where this freight is .

    unfortunately they CVOR is inactive, and so is insurance, not sure how they can be active if they are inactive, so my advice to all is to run their CVOR on your own, worth the $5 if you want to give them a load.

    I gave them a load last week. Ran their CVOR and had a COI done.

    ran their cvor today, and their operating authority was expired on Oct 22 2016. The one they claimed they operated from is not even in effect. Called insurance, they also cancelled their policy.
    do your due diligence, ......

    Try checking to see how many trucks are insured and you will have your answer for double brokering. They call other carriers their owner operators. They were making a couple of hundred dollars on 4 loads by brokering them, then when they discount the rate by 5% on an Ontario to AB run that adds up to a lot of money.

    I have done 8 loads now with VTL Toronto( Not Montreal) They have Quick paid us between in every instance.
    They are insured with Economical and i verified this again a few moments ago.
    I m not sure why people make false comments , Shouldnt you verify insurance before you give a carrier any deliveries?

    Why people can't see that a scam is being built up here is beyond me.

    @Key Factor. Discounts are one thing. Finance rates are another. 60 Percent is the legal limit i am sure you know. A lot of drivers do not have even 5 Percent profit on loads unfortunately . Tough Times for drivers these days. Rates have gone down while the costs have gone up.

    @Rana and @Soccermom, I'm pretty sure I'd take lots of heat if I charged 10% factoring fee. If that's what you're willing to accept for QuickPay, you should know that you can do MUCH better.

    @ Rana. i guess 10 percent is fine as long as you got a HHHUUUGGGEEEE rate in the first place.

    As For CH Robinson, i think it is a huge risk for them to pay half in advance. Good for carriers that need fuel, not good if the carriers doesn't deliver. 3 percent deduction seems very good for a one day quick pay. Most are 7 days, or 5 days

    Some brokers (especially the big guys) go really skinny on the margin on certain things and make it up by using smaller carriers who are more likely to want the quick-pay. CHR and Hub I know for a fact employ this as a strategy and I would venture to say a lot of the other bigger ones do as well. Being cash rich has its advantages for sure.

    Personally i think 10% is high BUT if agreed to then what is the problem.

    I have agreed to 10% before. It was my choice.
