  1. Many brokers don’t have an after-hours staff, so any problems or issues with customers have to be dealt with in-house. Also, some customers use lumper services, who are paid hourly and just above minimum wage, so they’re in no hurry to receive freight. They don’t seem to be concerned about our hours.

    1. I have been using https://lumperhq.com/ they charge by the hour. I am sure there are other lumper companies offering a flat rate per container unload or load.

  2. It isn’t brokers vs truckers. It’s middlemen vs leveraged front line contractor.

    Compare overhead and monthly expenses. Compare what % is left.
