LinkedIn Comments- Double Brokering

Mike, can you give a brief explanation of what double brokering is? Thanks

Hi Mitch, it can be a couple things but 90 percent of the time it’s a carrier who is on a load board that is asking to haul your load as a broker who then in turn hands the load off to another carrier. When this happens, the original carrier who is posing as an asset carrier then usually doesn’t pay the actual carrier who hauled the load and it creates a lot of issues with freight liability as well. Because basically a criminal is involved and is scamming you and the carrier. It’s really bad and it’s out of control rampant now. Scammers have figured out how to work the system. Not enough checks and balances.
