E1 did use the Mid west average which is the 2nd lowest in the country where Fedex uses the National average....
also E1 rounds off to the next LOWEST whole number...so if the FSC is say .259 you'd get .25...they keep the .009 cents in essence you never get 100% of the FSC
Yes midwest average and yes to the rounding down...
Now what if, ( if-lol), they bill the customer the national average and give us the midwest average. Another thing is you never get 100% of what is billed to the customer, only 100% of what they say you get.
1 customer may be billed @ .04 per mile based on contract
1 customer may not pay anything based on contract
1 customer may be billed .40 per mile based on contract
That is the problem. I want each run to stand on it's own. If I agree to take the load paying the .04 fsc, then that's fine. I agreed to it.
If I truned down a load that has no fsc, that's fine too.
When I took the .40 per mile fsc @ 1.05 that was a great run, and a good and fair rate.
The reason I was given for going to this fsc was, you get a standard fsc every week and should come out better due to some customer only paying the lower amount.
I think the true reason was drivers would not run for those customers that would pay no or low fsc. E-1 trundown's and selling those loads were high. The customer that paid the higher fsc would off set those that didn't.
Today if I run a load that pays a high FSC I do not see 100%, never will now.
If I run a load that pays Low FSC I see my other half of the customer that paid high FSC. If I don't, some other driver see's it. I could care less what the average is, pay me 100% of what is billed.
