I had no idea that we would be offered set rates otherwise I would never have bothered even tendering. The meeting I attended never mentioned this as a possibility. In fact, when a couple of people suggested this method, it was almost scoffed at. What a waste of time. A few years ago I accepted extra runs which have barely covered costs. I held on to them waiting for the RFT. Now I am in debt for these 2 new vehicles with no way to earn enough for their monthly payments.
