I have seen carriers try to deduct as much as 10 percent I suppose as long as it was agreed to prior, is understanding. !0 is a high number though. Factoring companies charge much less. 5 % percent is pretty standard. CH ROBINSON is one of the best. They advance drivers 50 percent as soon as they pick up the land, then pay the rest 24 hours after they receive the invoice and POD. 3 percent is their fee. Pretty good company, at least payment wise. I do hear from t\some carriers that they do not like the rates, but at least the rate is agreed to prior.
