uSHIP Prays on the Carrier, Encourages LOW bids for its gain
Once again in our industry, trucking and delivery businesses, we find a company that will exercise corporate greedy profits over the lively hood of people. #uship has miraculously come to fame by creating a Reality Television show that pits carrier against carrier in an effort to drive down the profitability of a shipment. The ONLY possible winner here is uShiT.
uShip makes up its rules as it goes along. Somehow dealing out bogus warnings then for NO reason canceling an account. They intend to root out those who will fight against the corporate greed. If anyone would make a comment or demonstrate the greedy structure of fees. If you dare to call them out they censure you and put you in a corner. The Nazi’s did dirty nasty things like that early in their champaign to rid Jews of any rights. uSHIP is doing just that.
I know of personal experiences where uShip employees have directed the shipper to wait for a lower bid telling the shipper to hold out because a carrier will give even a lower rate, next to nothing. In most cases a carrier already running on fumes with little to no profit will bite on the lower bid opportunity not realizing the after the high uShit fees there is little to no money after normal transportation expenses.
If a carrier demonstrates to a potential shipper the basic cost associated with shipping their product (the same as any business would do) fuel, insurance, tolls, travel cost AND USHIP FEES!!! And I can tell you from my personal experiences NO shipper realizes the carrier PAYS HUGE fees on top of what WE need to make on a given transport. Tying our hands impedes our ability to provide accurate cost effective services to a shipper.
I firmly believe a company has every right to run their business how they see fit, even at the expense of employees they fuck over. Companies do it everyday! because there are suppose to be laws in place that will protect the rights of employees stuck working to support their families with little or no other way to make a living. The tactics of a company to strong arm an employee to keep them in line, to lie to them, cheat them and use their corporate money to keep them pinned down.
To you Ushit and the employees who work there, FUCK you and your tactics. At some point you will have to answer to whatever G_d you pray to for your cheating, lying, thieving, greediness that makes you.
