lisa; oh you can ASK for half up front,then you get charged a percentage of that "advance" they call it,so your still losing money.why give them even more of the freight bill? this legislation puts the negotiation back in the transactions.it also see's to it that carriers are paid for collected fuel surcharges. some of the big shippers have implemented their own fuel surcharge tables and it is to be charged seperately from the line haul.I don't hear most companies complaining about buying fuel and getting paid after the load delivers,its the lack of surcharge pass thru and the excessive brokers fee's and lack of transparency. Wal-Mart and Home Depot are retail stores,and are nothing even close to trucking except everything in those stores arived on a truck.
