Direct Shippers are permitted to post their own loads to the NoBrokerFreight.com load board FREE of charge and absolutely free of Broker fees.
Owner Operators / Truck Drivers registering with us, agree to pay us all subscription, service and use fees, if any, that we charge as disclosed on our Site or otherwise by us. All fees must be paid in U.S. dollars.
Addendum 1) we promise to do our best to keep Freight brokers and Truck Broker Houses from entering our site, thus keeping our direct customers the "shippers" from paying unnecessary Broker Fees. We do ask that if a shipper should find a Broker who has, deceived us and slipped on to our site, to notify us right away so we can remove them.
A) Load Posting Brokers, Freight Forwarders and agents: Currently because Brokers do not increase the cost of shipping for our direct customers we are allowing them to post their loads to the NoBrokerFreight.com load board to fill in the gaps for truck drivers and reduce carbon emissions, we feel it is the right thing to do for everyone. NoBrokerFreight.com reserves the right to change our policy on allowing Brokers to post on the board at any time.
B) Trucking / Carrier Broker Houses that do not own their own trucks are not permitted on this site. If a Trucking / Carrier Broker misrepresents information to gain access to the NoBrokerFreight.com load board they will be removed at their cost. A minimum of $500.00 removal fee will be charged to the offending entities' or person's Credit Card used to register to the site.
NoBrokerFreight.com reserves the right to change our fee policy at any time.
Customers can cancel their membership at any time. We do not pro-rate for partial usage during a billing cycle. If a Customer pays for a month they will have usage for the balance of that month or until the expiration date the next month. Because No Broker Freight uses 100% of the Carriers 1st month's membership fee for marketing on behalf of all members, we cannot refund payments made on the 1st month's membership.
