Why the law changed

BROKER assumes too many of the motor carrier responsibilities

 

Most brokers pose as “motor carrier” to get the load from a shipper

 

BROKERS become as LIABLE as a motor carrier during broker operations AND RUN AWAY WHEN THERE IS A LOSS

 

BROKERS get the impression they are not LIABLE

 

¡MOST OF BROKERING PROBLEMS arise from the misconceptions

 

GOVERNMENT & SHIPPING want to separate brokering from carriage

 

BROKERS ARE A “SHIPPER” by LAW, not a carrier, and must act the part

 

ACTS OF TAKING POSSESSION, separate the two

 

STRICT LIABILITY when loss occurs   “CARMACK” 49 USC 14706

 

CAN THE BROKER TRULY ESCAPE LIABILITY?  Sec 14103
