You found a load on a load board that meets your business requirements. The next step is contacting the broker to negotiate the freight rate. Rates listed on load boards are rarely “all-in”. “All-in rates” cover the hauling cost as well as assessorial fees and fuel surcharge. Brokers generally offer lower rates because that is how they make money. Do not be afraid to ask for a better freight rate, especially if it is good for your business. But don’t just pull a number out of a hat either.
