Most brokers if they're any good can make up the tonu loss on volume without concerning themselves with fairness. In a fair world it would cut both ways.. i.e. broker would pay carrier for a load cancellation and carrier would pay broker for truck cancellation. Doesn't work that way because.. surprise surprise.. the world is not fair. So i look at it from a cost benefit perspective only. Which is more painful.. refusing a tonu .. or losing a carrier? Fairness never enters my mind in the calculation..the tonu cost crops up every so often and is a cost of doing business.. cheaper to pay it than to kick up sand and lose a carrier and one's reputation.
