June updates on regulations information.

June updates on regulations and information, volume, production.

We hope that you are reaping the rewards of our 14+ years of industry service. We’re asking for your input on our regulations pages but more on that below. As you know freight volumes are up and increasing so it’s always a wise idea to follow the loadboard for your next direct customer. If you happen to be busy or stuck on the road and prefer to monitor your loadboard account via Apple or Android phone it’s pretty easy to install the APP via iTunes or Google Play – just search the term “WideloadShipping.com” and install it to your device.

Regulations updates and user comments

The main reason we are sending this quick note however is to let you know the Rules and Regulations pages have been updated for 2018 and we’re averaging around 1400 visitors on these pages 24 hours a day. With this much web traffic depending on our data we’d like to ask anyone viewing them that may have additional information to add please do so by using the quick comment form at the bottom of each page. You can add comments in a single click from any computer or device. We value and appreciate your valuable input and comments on these pages as it give our viewers (and us) more information. While the regulations have a lot of information there is constantly updates and more info you may wish to see featured.


Banner advertising information

Another opportunity we’d like to offer you is the ability to advertise on these pages. Our standard fee due to the amount of exposure you’ll get is $240 a month for a basic banner ad (this is about 90% cheaper than Google Adsense). However, for those interested in placing banner ads we’re having a sale this week for 40% off. That’s correct! We’ll place your banner ad on each of the State/Province oversize and heavy haul regulations for $144 a month. So if you’re currently running an ad campaign or thinking about it now is a real good time to implement it as our web traffic will be at its highest (14+ years online tells us so) until the beginning of the New Year. We offer full support and can even show you how to create your own customer banner (.gif file or moving images on it) for free. Just send a note and we’ll set you up. Our directory of carriers is wise and affordable as well (create account).

Silver investing a production volumes?

Web traffic isn’t the only thing that is up these days, so are freight volumes. We sure hope you’re getting your getting a nice slice of that! While we’re all catching up on maintenance and bills from the winter consider this do your absolute best to save money. While advertising in the right place will probably earn you more money do it wisely. Also, while we’re not investment strategists and have never proclaimed to be investing in silver seems to be a good idea. Here’s a decent page to follow for more information on investing in silver. Also, if you want a good source for purchasing it (it’s affordable) we highly suggest using the Bullion Vault to make purchases as they have spot prices and are reliable world wide. Why silver? Well, technology is advancing at a very high rate daily. So is production. While gold is great silver prices are not only affordable (as low as $16.42 per ounce on 06/12/18) but there’s a production shortage as mines are producing less). So, this is only what we consider a safe option. In no way are we conveying to you we are professional precious metal speculators.

Silver bullion.

Investing in silver is affordable and more than likely a very good idea. Production volumes are down and demand is increasing daily.

The main purpose of this post however is to remind you all just how much a quick comment at the bottom of our regulations pages helps others. We thank you for your input! Let us know if there’s anything we can do to make our service better for you.

Safe travels and in the kind words of Joe Overlease “don’t take cheap freight”!

Pilot cars need to relax

Pilot cars need to relax!

There’s no doubt about it that the winter time is hard on a pilot car company. This is one reason why pilot car companies need to be wiser with there money when they do have it. Put that money away for the lean season. When winter time and the early spring months come, you’re going to need it!

the slow time of the year

Right now is a very busy time for us. From ad campaigns to developing software and making sure all of our carriers are happy we’re just flat out busy right now. In the midst of this one can’t help but to notice a few things.
As every year the pilot cars have it real tough at this time of the year. It appears that everyone is running (in every direction they can run) and most are unsatisfied with their results with the exception of the true veterans of the industry. We’ve had pilot car companies sign up in the dead of winter this year only to demand a refund within 30 days or so. Our basic service is $4.16 a month! When there’s no freight running there simply isn’t any. This is the equivalency to shooting your company in both feet (at the same time). One thing to consider is we’re not a brokerage supported website nor do we wish to perpetuate the industry in this direction. Our objective is to connect pilot car companies direct with carriers – not people skimming nickels and dimes (per mile) in a unregulated industry. While we don’t support freight brokerage either at least they are required to have a bond and a Federal MC#. Frost laws, the economy and what we refer to as “chaotic theory” all play a factor in determining freight volumes. This year is no different than any other and the official “boom” will happen sometime between the first of May and as late as the end of June just as it does every year.
Prepare for the slow times of the year.
When a pilot car company (or any company for that matter) is stressed out and having a hard time and decides to leave a company as heavily armed as WideloadShipping (online for almost 15 years, top of the search engines, has the trucks doing business on site and takes almost 2 million hits a month during peak months) because they are frustrated during the slowest months of the year they are like any other human being. They are going to think thoughts like “oh, they don’t like me as I quit using them” or “i’m embarrassed because I acted poorly in an email I sent to them” or even worse think they actually got ripped off. Whatever the scenario for $4.16 a month there is no way under the moon and the stars a company can go wrong on a deal like that for more than 20 reasons but here’s a quick 10:
  • You’re getting your name in the marketplace cheaply.
  • Not only that but ask yourself why are the trucking companies here?
  • Our site has so much history it is a trusted site.
  • We place exceptionally well in all related terms so customers can find you.
  • If you have your own website just the link from ours to yours is worth over $300 a yr.
  • Again, as far as popularity you are also connected to your Facebook account.
  • You are linked to your Twitter account.
  • You are linked to your Google account.
  • You are linked to your Google+ account.
  • You are linked to your YouTube account and can show your videos.

This is just a few of the more positive items rambled off real quickly. If we wanted to brag it wouldn’t be very hard. The point is, we offer a very affordable value oriented service and if just one company get’s left behind in all of the years of effort we have put into the heavy haul and oversize trucking industry we are not doing our jobs properly.

As far as pilot car companies are concerned it certainly isn’t where our company get’s it’s bread and butter for sure. Count the pins in the map then just assume each customer has a premium account (which they do not). You will quickly see this is a labor of love and we do it for our carriers, not financial gains as the money just simply isn’t there folks.
If you are one of the companies that has had a hard time with the new pilot car system you can rest assure we are not harboring any feelings towards you and if anything are looking for your presence so we can service our carriers. Send us an email so you can get your account back on track and learn how the system can work for you. Even if you don’t prefer to live post at least get your permanent home base pin is in its proper location and your listing not only looking good but reading well also. Save your money, be smart with your spending and add a few years to your life by relaxing. This slow time too shall end.
