In the traditional method of booking transportation services, customers have to contact several agents who charge a commission. In cases where the agent does not have any contacts available, they contact sub-brokers who also charge their own commission.
As a result, by the time the payment reaches the truck owners, they only receive a small percentage of the total amount paid. Often, customers are unaware of the sub-broker’s commission, and this information is hidden from them.
