    I’m not trying to bash you, I just mentioned my rate from Laredo to Visalia, CA. One skid, 1,100 lbs @ .95 for FedEx. Maybe I just got lucky.
    Good luck and stay safe!

      talking rates always get messy...there are so many brokered loads and then there is the direct customers with almost contract rates and then there is a preferred carrier status as well....rates out of Laredo can vary ....with L1 I got some great rates even with no parking spot conditions....OUR customer.....then the next time got laughed at for wanting even .75.....there is too many and I mean too many variables to say one way or the other...I myself wouldn't call anyone out....because Ntime you are going to get your rate outta there and someone will say bull....on that too...

      Well i questioned the rates because of Posters short history on EO ... from unknown to claiming now Top of Food Chain with no experience in this business ... last thursday he posted his driver was picking up Friday in Detroit for Laredo ... thats fine
      Then on Saturday says driver picked up in Chicago to Laredo for 90 + cents .. so which is it .. story changes..
      My guess load ...was always Chicago to Laredo at 90 cents. good rate .
      But now add 300 mile dead head from Detroit to Chicago for No Money ... hmmm
      1400 miles x .90 = $1260..
      Add 300 D H. =0.00
      1,700 miles = $1260..
      $1260 ÷ 1700 miles = 74 cents a mile ...
      Thats has Always been my Point for years ... All Mile Rate

      And you Ovm know thats the Dollar amount that I ONLY care about ..

      All aboard the Freight Train

      You are off on your calculations; from Detroit I took a load to Wisconsin at $1.03, then dead headed 120 miles to Chicago for $50 and then to Laredo.

      My history with Fedex is they’d rather pay an approved carrier a buck and make their van guy think they couldn’t pay him .90.
      This will keep him from trying to get more in the future.
      I’ve wondered if they figure by reducing the liability by putting in on an AC , the $1 to him is the same as the .80 to their van ?
