      The fees are high for the amount of loads they produce you will go broke paying the fees.

      Low fees,non forced dispatch and lower 48 capability in the Sprinter, got that sign me up. Please and thank you have a nice day. :D

      I'm confused, again. Are you saying Millhouse fees are high and they come up short on load offers? If so, what exactly are Millhouse's fees and what are the amount of these fees?

      What carrier offers that? Are you dreamin again?

      Is this a sincere please and thank you, have a nice day or is it a please and thank you, have a nice day, hope you choke on a Flying/Pilot roller dog?

      Correct me if I'm wrong ..
      A portion of their fleet exclusively runs for them & a portion doesn't. There are vehicles out there with Millhouse decals on them ... and some are multi's, correct? Is this insurance requirement consistent for all the vehicles they represent?

      Correct. And yes when I was a multi I needed the same insurance I have now.

      I'm pretty sure he has no idea what he's talking about. I can tell you the fees. I paid $35 for the application. $50 for my decals which is refundable when I quit and they take 1% off my total weekly settlement for the factoring fee. I get plenty of load offers but I don't go everywhere. Sometimes it's slow, just like with any carrier.

      Got to say an aplication fee sounds pretty wacky, never heard of any carrier charging for that?

      Anything is better then working for the bottom of the board carrier jump ship while you can.


      Exactly, and they don't offer cargo insurance in house which is part of expenses and fees.

      Yeah, but most carriers charge $200 for drug tests, and other fees associated with signing up.

      I make pretty good money with them. I have no complaints.

      They don't offer cargo insurance anymore, you're right. Doesn't mean it makes them a bad carrier or whatever :censoredsign: you're spewing. You still haven't answered moots questions, get on it if you want to be taken seriously.

      it amazes me the creativity of carriers to what they charge for and how it is applied...and at the end of the day...they all are usually within a few cents of each other...its just the path to the bottomline you take...
