I have just gotten a new dispatcher and do not feel he is responding to my messages as I expect to be done.
I have made several comments to upper management about recient changes including dropping o/o layover pay to $25.00 per day from $75.00. Company drivers dropped from $30.00 to $25.00 also. If you are empty for 24 hours and they deadhead you less than 40 miles, you might get it.
The company is on drivers to cut out of route miles (miles not billed for) to reduce costs. I, as an owner operator have to do the same. When they send a preplan to me, I put it into my computer to find the difference between pay miles and actual driving miles.
I was given a preplan and checked, the load had 15% unpaid miles. I expect to give 5%, but 15% is too much. That fuel cost comes out of my pocket, so I turned down the run with that explantion and asked for another p/p. After several hours, I asked again. The response was, we have nothing else. I had to sit for the night. The load was given to another driver.
The following day, I recieved a preplan for the same run as previous, but did not pick up for 3 days, and was less than 400 miles.
I went to truck stop for shower, and talked to a company driver who had just picked up a load that was sent to him late the previous day, after I was told there was nothing else available.
Now I have sat 2 days and will for 1 more befor getting load for less than 400 miles, because I have complained about somethings.
