Whats the point of buying an MC number when a lot of companies will start working with you fairly quickly. Companies like NTG, Arc Best ( Panther) and some other big companies will work with you within 3 months of being active, not to mention that there is plenty that will work with you as soon as your MC number is active..
If anyone is interested in an expedite loadboard for their small business, let me know. One of my long time friends in the industry started one to help small carriers of cargo/sprinter vans for $50 and for cargo/sprinter/straight trucks for $100. The board has an average of 5-10K loads per week all across North America ( including Canada).
