It is not the brokers driving down the cost of transportation on moves off the east coast. This is simply a function of supply and demand. This is not something new. Brokers can post a load coming off the East coast and in 5 minutes have 10 trucks for that load. If you choose the go to the East coast you need to be sure you make your money when you go in. Right now there is simply more capacity in the market place in general then freight because of the slow economy. We all know this will change. Carriers are reducing fleet sizes and the economy will rebound. This is when you will see third parties and brokers scrambling. Good third parties and brokers recognize this fact and will treat you fairly now so that when they need you they will have the capacity they require. The Goal at my company is to ensure efficient capacity in any market. That means making sure our carriers are and remain healthly through any market.
