*As of Dec. 9th 12PM Eastern, according to FMCSA Register
(data courtesy of Mike Curry at MyCarrierResources.com).
On Oct. 1, 2013, FMCSA reported there are currently 21,565 active brokers. Note: this figure does not include the mass freight forwarder authority revocations currently in progress...
So far, over 30% of the property brokerage industry has been revoked.
"With over 30% of
the industry's freight brokers now shut down and that figure growing
daily, America will now feel the full impact of MAP-21 in terms of increases in
consumer prices, decreases in freight rates for truckers due to the
megabrokerages' new oligopoly, and the loss of tens of thousands of freight
broker and freight agent jobs.
"The AIPBA predicted this outcome over 3 1/2 years
ago and we believe those responsible for this anticompetitive climate will now
be held accountable. A U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) Antitrust Division
attorney recently advised AIPBA that the AIPBA’s Antitrust Complaint concerning
certain trade groups' lobbying activities regarding this matter are currently
“under review” insofar as alleged collusion and the “sham petitioning” exception
to the Noerr-Pennington Doctrine are concerned.
"Although we do not mean to
infer, here, that the government necessarily believes anyone is, in fact, guilty
of any anti-competitive or criminal conduct, the DOJ has asked us to forward
whatever additional information we deem appropriate for their review and we
continue to do so as new information becomes available to us," AIPBA President James Lamb said.
The original suit:
AIPBA Filed Amended Complaint in on
September 19, 2013 to Challenge FMCSA's Use of
MAP-21 Guidance in Lieu of Rulemaking.
