…Or so the saying goes. The reason why people argue on that subject, is that on the one hand, you can create rules or laws that set a certain standard. And enforce those rules. But on the other hand, even while attaining compliance, the rule-makers have not necessarily changed the beliefs of the population they are imposing the rules upon.
So what does this have to do with freight? Steve Banker penned a piece at Forbes.com where he argues about whether you should trust a broker or shipper to handle your freight. No offense to Mr. Banks, but it’s a worthless argument. It’s like the argument about whether or not you can legislate morality. Both sides of the argument have valid points. The key is, find a representative you trust, whether they are a brokerage or a shipper, and work with them (disclaimer: we are both a broker and a carrier).
