What? If I was an owner operator ain't no way I'd haul freight for 25% of what the load pays. I make about that as a company driver.
Let's see. If the load pays $2,000 and you get 70% that's $1,400. Now let's say it's a 1,000 mile run at 6mpg that's 166 gallons at $4.00 per gallon. Now your at $734. The rest is maybe operating costs, taxes and whatever.
