USHIP, killing the honest and legal American trucker and trucking industry.
They format of USHIP is great and easy to use. However, USHIP does NOT police their site for illegal truckers and trucking companies. The legal American trucker spends thousands a year on insurance and there is more thousands spent on permits and maintenance and taxes. The illegal truckers bid hundreds and even thousands less to get the bid. They claim to have insurance yet if they had to pay $7200.00 per year which is what I pay and that is the cheapest available, they could not operate for the prices they bid. At $1.00 per mile, a trucker may make 20-30 cents a mile if lucky after expenses. The illegal shippers offering service at 60-80 cents per mile is killing the honest trucker. If USHIP made all the truckers who use their site show proof of insurance, permits MC/DOT and CDL, they would have a fair site for both the consumer and operator. USHIP make at least 5% commission even when they low ball illegal wana be trucker wins the bid. They would still make their money if all they had was legal truckers,....maybe more. It shows they care nothing about the American trucker and when it comes down to it they care nothing about the consumer. Just wait for an illegal trucker to have an accident and lose the cargo...or worse yet the cargo and someone's life. The illegal truckers insurance won't cover the loss and someone's life just got destroyed. Where's USHIP going to stand on that? Do it right and do it legal....it's so sad to see a brilliant site ruin an industry.
