"Can the Broker-Carrier Model Reduce Your Misclassification Risk?"

How implementing a better business model can strengthen your workforce against California’s AB5 and similar legislation nationwide.

In a transportation industry that’s becoming increasingly complicated, preventing misclassification claims can be challenging, especially without the proper technology and business model in place. But for companies that work with independent contractors, the most comprehensive and defensible approach against misclassification may be the broker–carrier model, which offers a potential path out of the quagmire of the ABC test’s B prong. So, before we get started, one basic question remains: What’s your model? 


Though distinctions between the five delivery and logistics workforce models may seem confusing, fully understanding how to implement the right one can help you navigate the many legal woes of misclassification.  

 In this guide, we’ll examine: 

  • The benefits and pitfalls of each delivery and logistics model 

  • The nuances and consequences of lawsuits alleging misclassification 

  • Best practices for applying the broker–carrier model to your business 

  • How technology can alleviate risks of misclassification and third-party liability
