Priority Freight is a freight forwarder, they would be asking to see your GIT insurance if you work for them not the other way around.

This really is a farce isn't it? Just been checking some of these "Profile of the Day". Some of the profiles have no insurance details, some have incomplete addresses and the most annoying one, every service type available! How many time have I rung members who state they have a bike or a small van only to be told "no, I have a sprinter but I can do bike and small van work". We are not thick, we all know a bike load will fit in a sprinter but I want a bike I want a bike. Seems like "profile of the day" is just a lucky dip!

This really is a farce isn't it?

I think the important thing that we are aiming to get across is that there are 100s of owner drivers and companies on mtvan who are actively involved in courier work, and who have gone to the (30 minutes or so) trouble of completing their own profile.

We strongly recommend everyone should go to this trouble, and we are busy weeding out those who can't be arsed, so they won't appear on the directory, as previously discussed.

We 100% agree that owner drivers shouldn't check every vehicle type, as it's unhelpful to vendors. They should check the boxes they actually have the vehicles for.

We hope you'll point that out to them when you call.

It's likely that there will be a website solution soon for this, but in the meantime, if you are an owner driver, please ensure that you have checked only the services that you actually have the vehicles to cover, as that's what courier companies want to see.

Says on their profile that they're a courier company. If they were a Freight Forwarder they should be putting"GIT not required" They can see my GIT anytime they want to.

I would guess that's what it says if you don't bother filling in your profile. Priority Freight don't put work through exchanges, they only use them to contact owner drivers in the areas they need. They've called me several times although I've only been able to do one job for them so far.

It's ok but, once again, look at the service types available! Would the heading be better as Vehicles available?
