FREIGHT BROKER BUSINESS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AND WHY!
By: Maria Suzettis
First, to point out something to any readers who are new to or unfamiliar with the trucking
industry. Everything you eat, drink, wear and use comes on a truck. These men and
woman who has made this their professional make many personal sacrifices to supply
and delivery us with products we use daily. They spend so much time away from family,
they miss their children growing up, end up in divorces and sitting so much it messes up
their health sometimes.
So, stop and thank a TRUCK DRIVER.
So many drivers are wanting off the road due to so many different of these issues and
have wanted to learn about the freight brokerage business, but no one will share the
information with them. You’ve been asked again and again and no answers. Well I have
some important information for you.
The freight broker business is one of the best kept secrets out there. It is a multi-trilliondollar business. Note that trucking will never stop… if trucking stops, everything stops.
You may have thought that the only way to get into this business is to know someone in
this business or have special password? Well your partly right, knowing someone in this
business does help, but there two ways to get into this business. You can be either
become a full “Freight Broker” and own your own business or become an “Broker Agent”
who works under the broker for a split of the earnings. It doesn’t matter if you were a truck
driver or just interested in this industry, you can learn this.
You just need to understand who to talk to, what services are available,
where to locate
shippers and carriers, and we’re here to help you with all of this. To be a freight broker,
you need to know what licensing and the bond you need to get started. As a broker agent,
how to pick a freight broker to work for that is well-established. We’re here to help you
take these next steps.
As a full “Freight Broker” you keep all the monies earned that you negotiated between the
shipper and the carrier. (Example: Shipper pays $5,000 for load and you get a carrier to
haul it for $4,500. The $500 difference is yours to keep). The freight broker must carry
the license and the bond and is 100 % responsible to pay the carrier.
As a “Broker Agent” you keep a portion of the monies earned that you negotiated between
the shipper and the carriers. (Example: Shipper pays $5,000 for load and you get a carrier
to haul it for $4,500. The $500 difference). If you have a 50/50 split with the freight broker.
You get to keep $250 and the freight broker gets the other $250 for using their license
and bond. Note: Brokers pay different percentages to the agents.
If you really want to get into this business, educate yourself and ask questions. Now most
freight broker agent schools will not give too much information, but they should answer
your basis questions. Check to see how many years they’ve been in business and do
they have any references.
