In the last few months Freight Brokers have had a very difficult time finding trucks from carriers. There has been a shift in control of freight from freight brokers back to carriers. For instance we have direct customers calling and begging us to take their loads, if that is twenty trucks a week we give to the new direct customer we have. Who is hauling the outbound loads from the freight brokers that we used to haul to fill in the gaps? If no one is hauling the loads, how long can it be before freight brokers start going out of business. There are lots of good freight brokers out there, and we still do a load here and there to help them out but how can a carrier turn down a direct customer when they come to us offering $4-$5 a mile for freight going to the U.S. Solid manufacturers that cant get trucks through their normal channel of freight brokers. Am I the last to realise these times in transportation are making history.
