Beware of this Growing Trend
A buyer in California purchases a load of widgets from a supplier in Indiana. The buyer arranges the freight and puts the load out for bid on a load board. A seemingly legitimate motor carrier is awarded the bid. A truck shows up to pick up the widgets as scheduled, surrenders the proper paperwork, gets the cargo and is never seen again.
This process is favored by today’s thieves and is a growing trend especially in the food and beverage industries. Be careful out there.
