The AIPBA has zero tolerance for members who act in a fradulent or unscrupulous fashion under the AIPBA brand. Because of this policy, shippers and carriers/independent owner-operators can rest assured they are associated --and dealing-- with reputable companies when they choose to work with an AIPBA member broker. All broker applicants for membership must pledge "to conduct business in an ethical fashion with the utmost integrity."
We will therefore list cases below in which members' memberships have been revoked after the AIPBA conducted an investigation upon complaint or on its own initiative. This is usually due to a violation of the AIPBA's ethics policy, including, but not limited to, brokers failing to pay their carriers/independent owner-operators.
As rates offered and accepted are a matter of contract between the two parties, we do not make judgments as to whether a rate paid was "unfair" or "inappropriate" or otherwise get involved in rate disputes unless the complainant can show prima facie evidence of accompanying deceptive business practices on the part of the hiring party.
No members have been revoked as of yet.
