Avoid this Scam AND Keep your Job!
When YOUR Company gets hit with a $60,000 claim and YOU get fired, it’s YOUR fault!
This scam cost a good, honest guy his job. Don’t let this happen to you.
There is an EPIDEMIC in the Transportation World right now, today – 2008. YOUR freight is being illegally double brokered by your Carriers to other Carriers without your knowledge or permission. When this happens – YOUR freight is no longer insured!!!
True story: A few months ago, a carrier brokered a load of pipe to a friend who had a truck. There was no paperwork exchanged. While transporting the pipe, the driver took a corner too fast, and rolled the trailer and all of the product down a steep mountainside.
The problem: THE SECOND CARRIER WAS UNINSURED. He had no cargo insurance and no liability insurance.
The result: The Shipper was left with the problem of suing the first carrier for the value of his pipe. The first carrier simply filed bankruptcy and started a new company one month later under a new MC# (learn why MC#s give you instant critical info).
The Shipping Manager was screwed, and he was fired for using the first carrier.
What could the Shipper have done to avoid this expensive loss? They could have qualified the Carrier to a service and performance “standard”. This is not a guarantee that they would not have had the same problem. But odds are they would have avoided the problem. (learn more about setting your own “standard”)
The Shipper could have used a Top 100 Broker such as Freight Tec. How does this protect you? Freight Tec QUALIFIES EVERY TRUCK on a DAILY Basis. Before a truck is used by Freight Tec, they must be qualified, and in our system. Then they are re-qualified every day. It seems excessive – but it’s the only way to be sure you are protected.
