Now I don't want to make things up or anything....
I had a load offer, and I ask who the customer was, I was told Bounce our sister company. Sure I'll take it. We didn't get the load. So, that got me thinking, did Bounce go with a lower rate carrier? lol
I'd rather believe that Bounce has preferred carriers. They never gave me a load when I was running under my own authority, and believe me, I was asking for cheap prices.
We left over the rate change. It never got close to working out close to even. Now its much better where we landed.
Funny thing, when I went to turn in my QualComm, a senior manager told me that Pike led the new owner down the garden path and expedite suffered greatly because neither of them understood the expedite business. Then I heard Pike was fired, but cannot confirm. He also told me, "They have no Plan B" describing a powerful ship turning in circles.
Yeah, turning lots of circles at a lower rate per circle!!!!
It might be going in circles because someone pulled the drain plug.
Didn't they say "it is all about the miles".
Ouch! Need to borrow my heat gun?The Horse is not really dead yet.
Well, let’s see if the rate decrease is working….
Paying all deadhead, then no miles are really deadhead, just paying a really low rate. My my, look what the deadhead will do to my rates..
I took a few runs in June and ran the numbers.
Of the 5 random loads- per mile rate. All in- includes load pay, FSC and deadhead pay.
The long dead head is the cause, this “new deal”…. Well, it needs flushing. Then, the Horse will die.
