Sorry... Misread your post... What you pay depends on a couple of things.

Are you a trucker looking for someone to basically find you freight and dispatch?
A: I used to do this for O/O for a fixed %. I have also done it for a "Flat Rate" per load. You just have to watch out for the loads they book through brokers. Lower paying, and you still have to pay them for finding it.

Are you a broker looking for an agent?
A: A fixed % per load booked

Hope that helps

I know a company that finds the loads and books the loads for 3% of what the load pays and they will usally have loads waiting for you to pick up by the time you get unloaded so there is no dead time. I use them my self for my trucks and it makes my life alot easier and they get me rates depending on the states from 1.40 a mile to over 3 dollars. remember the more they make you is the more they make and that is the way it should be.

Yes, this is new to me but I am wondering if it is NORMAL for Carriers to come back with a rate that is anywhere from 20% to 40% higher than the market rate for those loads? It seems most want more.

As an industry professional working in a dispatcher position; yes, we always want more. We want to be able to pay the drivers and cover the overhead. At the end of the day, a trucking company only makes about .01 - .05 per mile on loads.
