GM's 1st quarter key to stock sale
The Treasury Department will wait for General Motors' first-quarter earnings before deciding whether to sell more of its investment in the nation's largest automaker, a person familiar with the matter said. The Treasury can sell some of its remaining 500 million GM shares, which equals 33 percent ownership, starting May 22. Officials are waiting for GM's first-quarter earnings results and to see what happens to the stock when bondholders in GM's bankrupt predecessor company receive shares as partial compensation for their losses, said the person, who didn't want to be identified because the plans aren't public.

BREAKING INDUSTRY NEWS
Expediters Network .com is contacting a Toledo Ohio Expedite Carrier (name withheld pending this investigation), regarding a reported allegation to ExpeditersNetwork.com from a "xxx" Agent, to get their side of the story in terms of allegations from this Agent of theirs, that they are refusing to pay their bills for freight they subbed out to an Agent Carrier of theirs. We'll get their side of the story and you'll be able to read about it here as details surface. We'll post the details from both sides asap, read more soon. THE CARRIER NAME WILL BE DISCLOSED PENDING OUR INVESTIGATION ALONG WITH THEIR RESPONSE OR LACK OF).
 
Additionally,  we are contacting "xxx" "xxx" Logistics an expedite carrier regarding the following...
(this information, according to one of "xxx" "xxx" Independent Contractor/Owner Operators aka as IC/OOP), We will provide "xxx" "xxx" response as it is obtained. THE CARRIER NAME WILL BE DISCLOSED PENDING OUR INVESTIGATION ALONG WITH THEIR RESPONSE OR LACK OF).
 
 The complaint alleges that "xxx" "xxx" Independent Contractor/Owner Operators, that they are forced to purchase commercial insurance thru "xxx" "xxx" insurance broker and mandates their IC/OOP's purchase and have settlement deductions for their insurances or be disqualified from running for them. "xxx" "xxx" allegedly prohibits running for any other carrier while leased on with them. If and when "xxx" "xxx" fails to provide loads, this IC/OOP is forced to sit and watch the grass grow and is prohibited from making money from another expedite carrier.

Through our research, most expedite carriers allow and even encourage IC-OOP's to run for multiple carriers. We are told this is to deliberately AVOID IC/OOP's from starvation when carriers are unable - to provide conistent load volume. When an IC/OOP does not get fair volume, they should be able to freelance wherever they choose in an effort to capture badly needed operating revenue to help them survive. To not be able to supply freight in adequate amounts to OOP's and watch them set and starve, is simply mind boggling. Finally, every "Independent Contractor is just that (an Independent Contractor), you have the right to operate that way and NOT, as an employee... Keep in mind that if an IC/OOP purchases / attaches itself to any expedite carriers policy, they would be forced to purchase a SECOND policy to run for any other carrier...
When you own and control your OWN policy, you can now run for as many expedite carriers as you wish (which most IC/OOP's do), you can now capture freight from another carrier when one of your carriers fails to provide a load on any given day (s), Additionally, your loads will be produced faster when you have MULTIPLE carriers looking for your freight for you at the same time. When you get a load from one carrier, you should simply go out of service with the others that were looking for your loads simultaneously, then, tell those other carriers where your headed as well as your drop time and availability after drop. Then, simply start all over again the next day the same way. Whoever gets your load first, take it, make the money but be sure to go out of service with the other carriers. First come - first served. Nothing wrong with that! We are told that ExpeditersInsurance.com can provide other agents/brokers who can and will write your commercial policies for your expediter units of any size. We will provide more follow up on this as details surface.
 
Finally, we will be contacting a particular independent agent / insurance broker out of Ohio to find out if they are aware that if they're aware of the suffering caused to IC's/OOP's and if they sell insurance to "xxx" "xxx"  Logistics and specific other carriers and what if anything they offer specific carriers in exchange of having them write these policies.
