How to Start and Succeed In Your Own Freight Broker Business No Matter Where You Live, Where Your Customers Are, What Your Background Is … Even If You’ve Never Driven a Truck … and Learn How to Do It All In 30 Days or Less!

Could This Be the Best Freight Broker Training You’ve Ever Come Across?

Dear Future Freight Broker,

You may be at a crossroad in this stage of your life not knowing which way to turn. Or, you may be seeking a solid, realistic opportunity without much luck. If you’re in trucking, maybe you’re getting tired of climbing in and out of your cab. Maybe you’re getting tired of smelly truck stop bathrooms or eating “manufactured” food after having already missed many family activities through the years.

You might even be headed toward retirement and are getting anxious about finding a substitute for trucking or some way to supplement your other income. Or, are you that person who is stuck in a dead end job, bored stiff and scared about your current job outlook? It doesn’t matter …

With my simple 6-part program …

You Will Learn That Freight Brokering May Not Be That Difficult or Complicated to Get Started In!

In the next several minutes, I’m going to take you through an outline of my system where you will learn about starting and maintaining a PROFITABLE freight broker business. My program is not a general introduction – it is a detailed and comprehensive solution to ALL the hurdles you may be facing.

Not just for getting your broker authority (that’s where we usually begin) but the other requirements like learning what tools you will need and how to properly use them, finding shippers who are receptive to working with you and ready to give you loads; or, how to find and prequalify motor carriers, including what you’ll need to know in the legal realm to reduce your exposure to broker liability. These materials and tools are so powerful you’ll end up saving thousands of dollars as I help you cut through the mustard.

Manufacturing, distribution, freight, logistics, transportation, supply chain and trucking – all of these are integral parts that you will come in to contact with.

If this is what you are seeking, this may be the most important message you’ll ever have read.

Here’s why:

My name is John Thomas. I’ve been training individuals for 15 years on how to start, run and succeed in their own freight broker business. In fact, I’ve been working for over 20 years with other small business start-ups before I got into broker training. Education, training and mentoring are my passions! This program is based primarily upon my own previous brokerages, Atex Logistics, Inc. and Atex Freight Brokers, Inc. (MC# 453560). So, I’ve “been there, done that”.

There is no need for you to flounder around, struggling to understand what is required, or how to do what you are supposed to do, or when to do it all so that you gain enough confidence that you are on the right track. Perhaps most importantly, there is no need for you to make costly errors that can’t be reversed.

When I got into brokering, it took nearly four months just to get organized and ready to go. Most of the time I didn’t know what I was doing and finding help in this “tight-lipped” industry is like trying to find a sandy beach on the islands of Palau.

I didn’t really have a game plan for getting started and when I DID get started, I usually ended up calling on shippers who were being called on by other brokers. Not good!

Sad to say but some days I’d just sit there twiddling my thumbs, hoping someone would call me. Can you imagine the helpless feeling I felt? But, I kept plugging away. I documented everything I did, putting it into a journal, hoping I could sort things out some way.

Eventually, I started getting loads – slowly. Then one day, after working with a particular shipper for several months, I got a phone call from him. He said, “This is Ramon”.

I’m thinking, “What’s he calling ME for?”

Then he said, “I’ve got a load. I need a truck”.

Wow!

After making who knows how many phone calls, finally – FINALLY someone called ME instead of me calling them! And, it slowly mushroomed from there. There were some days I could hardly get away to the bathroom!

Would YOU like a blueprint where you can bypass a lot of the needless frustration?

You see, I knew these industries were gigantic! Trucking, freight, logistics, the supply chain and freight brokering – they are immensely huge!

In these gargantuan industries, there are thousands and thousands of potential customers waiting for YOU right NOW! If you would like to get on board and start moving YOUR portion of these thousands and thousands of products being shipped every day, please continue reading.

As a freight broker, you will coordinate the complete transaction between shippers and carriers and you will receive a commission for your matchmaking skills. Further, after gaining the trust and confidence of both shippers and carriers you will get repeat business; you will guarantee yourself an income stream for as long as you are in business.

My program in logistics and brokering is comprehensive, effective and affordable. The materials are laid out so you can get the “big picture” as well as penetrate and understand all the essential details.

After documenting a huge portion of my operations, I started training new brokers. My twin brother who was always very supportive, and an “idea” man, gave me the encouragement I needed.

During an out-of-town strategy session with my twin, we couldn’t even enjoy our business “vacation”. During that particular week, my freight broker training exploded. People were signing up so fast I found myself having to train all the while we were in the hotel. In the following weeks and months, it came so fast that I transitioned out of brokering and into training full time.

I couldn’t do both – I had to sleep sometime.

One of my favorite stories early in my training is about a young client who had NO idea what brokering was all about. Three months after training, he called me. I’m thinking he is going to complain about not being able to find loads.

He said, “No, I’ve had as many as two hundred loads! I can’t find enough trucks! How can I find more trucks?”

Well, that’s a nice “problem” to have. He also had several big accounts to my surprise.

Now, not everyone will have 200 loads or big accounts shortly after finishing training. But, one never knows. Sometimes it’s a matter of being in the right place at the right time and you had better be ready for it. And, I’ll show you some ways to jump-start your business.

The question for you today is: what can YOU do to make money in brokering?

Imagine Yourself Just for a Minute That You Are Brokering Freight

It’s a beautiful morning and you are calling one of your steady customers – a shipper. He has a load of frozen pizzas that needs to be picked up from Chicago and delivered to Dallas. He needs a refrigerated unit (a reefer).

You go through your database of carriers that you have accumulated or you’ll search one of the load boards and you call a motor carrier. You ask them if they have a truck available to pick up in Chicago to deliver to Dallas. They check their availability and say, Yes, give me the details.

You give them all the details and tell them you will immediately fax the confirmation. In a few minutes you get the signed and dated confirmation faxed back and several minutes later, the truck driver calls you.

He is calling to let you know he is ready to roll and to ask for any last, specific instructions. You give them to him and wish him a safe trip. After his delivery, the carrier sends you an invoice along with the related paperwork. You turn around and invoice your shipper.

In a few weeks or sooner, you expect the payment from your shipper. When you receive your check, this normally completes the cycle.

And, it’s rinse and repeat.

Is it always this easy? Absolutely not. It’s a service-oriented business and it will take time to build solid business relationships. But many times, it IS this simple IF you know what you’re doing.

Can you see yourself doing this?

You have an opportunity here. Don’t put it off. Every day you postpone this, another broker is taking loads that YOU should have.

What Kind of Benefits Can You Expect Working As a Broker?

Your Business …

  • can be home-based,
  • can use family members,
  • can be without outside employees,
  • has a high return on investment (ROI),
  • does not rely upon one geographic area,
  • more and more can be run off of a smart phone,
  • can relocate to anywhere – even overseas,
  • does not require heavy paper work,
  • can be passed on to family or heirs,
  • can be started from scratch,
  • has relatively low start-up and operating costs
  • has a high-income potential,
  • requires no back ground check,
  • will challenge you daily,
  • can be sold,
  • can supplement an existing trucking operation,
  • requires no special formal education or background,
  • may be run while you’re on the road in transition, and
  • with the proper determination, experience or training almost anyone can become a truck broker.

In a Nut Shell – These Are, Without a Doubt, Your GREATEST Benefits

When you invest in your freight broker venture, you have a high “ROI” opportunity. What do I mean here? ROI is your “return on investment”. It’s like you giving someone a dollar and they turn around and give you five dollars back. That’s a deal you’ll want to do over and over again. And that’s exactly how freight brokering works. You invest – you get a return greater than what you invest.

Throughout this letter, you will learn WHAT I have to offer; HOW MUCH it’s going to cost; WHAT’S in it for you; and, WHY you can trust me.

Many others are already on their way … after all, it’s the BEST freight broker training out there.

How My Training Has Impacted Several Clients

===================================================================================================

The best informative part is the different scenarios that we went thru in regard to talk to the shipper and carrier. Also the handouts and the e-book were very acknowledgeable.

– Andrew from Salisbury, NC

Yvonne from Texas called to tell me she got such a good rate from one shipper that she had to ask him THREE times just to make sure she did not misunderstand him.

– Yvonne from Texas

Ken from Florida called to tell me he got such a good rate from a shipper he felt “guilty” when the load gave him a whooping 25% profit! I can help relieve your guilt.

– Ken from Florida
=============================================================================
Many individuals think they can learn this business on their own.

The business concept is simple enough – find shippers, then find trucks and then put them together. Grab a commission in the process. However, when you strike out on your own you risk being perceived as incompetent and unprofessional. Shipping managers and others will spot you a mile away.

Knowing the correct procedures, the correct questions and the correct methods for getting a load moved safely, effectively and efficiently will mark you as a professional. Procedures need to be done in sequence or else you mess up the entire flow of things – and, you might lose a customer.

Another thing – you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars for training – but you DO need to know the many essential details as well as the basics. The “attractive” low-cost, $98 to $497 deals, may not be what you really need IF you are serious about becoming a professional freight broker.

Now, right now, you may be asking yourself, “How can I find loads to get started if I’m new to the business and a small operator”? Good question.

The simple answer is, If you can’t find on-the-job training (very difficult to find), you need to get properly trained by a good mentor.

My accounting background and my passion for exploring small business opportunities in my earlier years enabled me to prepare and conduct numerous workshops to potential small business owners on “How to Start a Business”.

Shortly after creating this particular program, I was hired by a large multi-use real estate development company. My objective was to help business owners – retail and service – join our real estate development. A big part of the program involved doing market research. I loved that almost as much as accounting.

So, fast forward to El Paso …

Before I got into freight brokering here, I spoke with about 20 brokers here. (My secret to getting my foot in the door of the potential competition was to ask them to review my cash flow projections. ANY savvy business man would be interested in seeing what someone else’s cash flow projection looks like).

I also spoke with some shippers and truck drivers. The information that was collected was invaluable. It formed the basis for my business plan that secured my initial line of credit.

Again, based upon marketing skills, my customer acquisition advice in my freight broker training deals with the question: How many different ways are there to find customers? Many mistakenly ask, What is the “best” way or What is the “fastest” way to find shippers?

The best and fastest ways are sometimes the most difficult. Why? You want to do what others are not willing to do. You want to go the extra mile if that’s what it takes to beat the competition. You want to be “effective”. And, I’ll show you how – in our program, we’ll explore the many “different” ways get customers and you’ll come to learn what works for you and what doesn’t.

My System Is Based Upon a Six-Part Instruction Manual
with Handouts, Videos and Bonuses

  1. Getting Organized and Getting Your Broker Authority, Getting your company set-up and doing the applications for the broker authority, etc.

  2. Essential Tools of the Trade, How to calculate rates, using the load boards, rate negotiation, setting up databases, etc.

  3. Finding & Working with Shippers, Preparing the set-up package, search strategies, taking the order, posting the load, etc.

  4. Prequalifying & Working with Motor Carriers, Preparing the set-up package, finding trucks, booking the load, sending and receiving the agreements and confirmations, etc.

  5. Business, Credit, Legal & Financial Issues, Load manager templates, credit, cash management, claims, accounting, potential problems, etc.

  6. Legislation & Other Related Legal Issues CSA2010, MAP21, FAST Act, HOS, avoiding negligent carrier selection, broker liability, etc.

And bonuses mentioned further below.

These six steps are what took me from zero clients to working with hundreds and hundreds of them.

And, guess what?

You can learn how to do all these things no matter where you are located and no matter where your customers and carriers are located. I’ve trained clients who were in Iraq, Kuwait, the Philippines, Okinawa, Canada and most of the states in the U.S.

Work off your kitchen table, if you like. Your shippers and carriers won’t care – they just want a good, hard-working, reliable and knowledgeable person to partner up with.

This six-part strategy is the “missing link” that successful brokers have learned that others haven’t.

This is your Step-by-Step Guide to Crafting a Money-Making Machine That Generates Repeat Business and Streams of Income for As Long As You or Your Associates Work It.

Which leads us to the topic of “money”.

What Is Your Income Potential As a Freight Broker?

This is a frequently asked question – and a worthwhile one at that.

Realistically, the income potential is unlimited. That’s the good news. The bad news? Normally, you don’t start out with a bang and, if you are starting from scratch, it will take some time to get established.

However, while you are building your freight broker business, your overhead and operating expenses will be relatively low – telephone, office supplies, load boards and maybe the trust fund will be your biggest expenses – not much more depending on how you structure your business.

Our training will put you on a fast track that will have you calling on potential customers in about 30 days. Some established brokers are doing several hundred thousand dollars a year; others are going broke. Knowing how to punch the right buttons is a big factor to success.

You may not start out doing 10-15 loads per week. But, when you do the math, you may be looking at a very, very nice level of income.

We’ll discuss using freight agents to help grow your business if you want to slam it in high gear. Using broker agents is a different animal but worthwhile if you are willing to go down this road.

You won’t hear too many success stories from smaller private freight brokers. Brokers don’t want the competition. They’re not going to tell you how well they are doing or where to go to find loads or get trucks. In fact, some will tell you it’s almost impossible to succeed. Well ….. is this true? I think, Not.

Here’s another satisfied customer:

I am glad I signed up for the course. It was a good experience and a good investment. It was patently obvious to me that a lot of time and attention was directed toward presenting a very professional package. I feel that I benefited a lot and now it’s up to me to put what I learned into practice. I’m particularly happy about having all the handouts and training book to use as a resource as I try to become more cognizant of the freight brokering business. Thank you for all your help.

– Dan Lambert from Dallas, TX

So, What Are Your Training Options?

You have three ways to train:

  1. Live in El Paso, Texas,
  2. 1-on-1 Over the Telephone & Internet, or
  3. Home Study

With each option, you receive:

  • A comprehensive and detailed training manual – about 150 pages,

  • About 40 handouts, some of which you’ll modify and use in your business (like the 4-page Broker-Carrier Agreement, the load confirmation, the set-up packages, etc.), and

  • About 30 videos that help explain most of the handouts.

  • For the telephone and online training, you’ll be emailed a link to download the manual; we’ll get together over the phone once or twice a week for one to two hours per session. We go through the entire program – you’ll have the program in front of you on your computer – and I’ll do likewise.

With each option except for the Home Study, you have unlimited support. I’ll stick with you as long as you need me – and you’ll let me know when that is. For the Home Study, you have up to three months of email support.

Why Train With Atex Freight Broker Training?

First, our training is pretty much a One-Stop Shop. EVERYTHING you need to get set up and EVERYTHING you need to operate successfully after getting your broker authority is here with us and with our associates.

We help coordinate everything with you. We’ll do the applications for your broker authority together when it’s time to do these.

Second, with our training:

  • You will train to become a fully, self-employed freight broker,
  • You will be running an entire business doing customer searches, invoicing, accounts payable, cash management, plus a whole lot more,
  • You will learn how to apply solid business fundamentals specific to freight brokering,
  • Of course, with our six-part program, you will learn all the other nuts and bolts of running a freight broker business.

Choose which freight broker training option is best for you and start thinking about a form of doing business (LLC or sole proprietor, etc.). Start searching for an available business name. I can help to some extend on these initial items.

Again, make sure you get instruction from someone who has “been there, done that”.

Each training option gives you a comprehensive, step-by-step road map, explaining what to do, how to do it, when to do it, with whom to do it, why you are doing it, plus more.

I’ve got a number of other methods and “secrets” that I’ve used that will get your attention.

Like how to create rates and check to see if they are realistic, why giving quotes is not always a good strategy, what to watch out for when negotiating with both shippers and carriers, how to approach shippers as a guest, not a pest, the pros and cons of meeting face-to-face with shippers, one effective technique that will help fight against low rates from shippers, where to go to find customers who aren’t being called on by every other broker in the country, what to expect when truckers or dispatchers call about your load and why following the herd will only lead to frustration, etc.

And, while I can’t tell you all the “secrets” right now, there is a way for you to get them quickly and easily.

I have put ALL this information into a detailed, comprehensive and easy-to-read training manual called: Atex Freight Broker Pro.

And it contains the exact blueprint I used to take my brokerage and many clients from nothing to a full-fledged venture ready to rock in just several weeks.

I originally wrote my freight broker training manual to help me get my freight broker business off the ground; since then, this blueprint has transformed the lives of hundreds of other people.

But, you can’t find this for sale on the Internet or in bookstores. However, if I hear from you today, you’ll have the opportunity to instantly download and access this powerful store house of information.

In fact, if I’m in the office when you or we process the order, you can have your link in about 20 minutes to download the materials.

More on this in a moment. But first …

No other freight broker training program even comes close to what you receive here. Just review the website here. There’s a ton of helpful information and most of it won’t cost you a penny to read. There are other low-cost materials.

I challenge you to call any other training program and compare theirs with ours. Ask questions – a lot of questions. Especially, Is their program conducted by someone who has actually OWNED their own brokerage? If not, well … who knows what you are going to get.

Here are a few other client comments:

Two years ago I have received training from John Thomas who owns ATex Freight Broker training out of Texas. Anyone interested in transportation brokering, this is your go to guy. People often ask me about this business.

I can give you an overview of the industry, but I am not a trainer. Anyone who is seriously interested needs to contact John. This is the best training out there, where dollar for dollar you get your money’s worth.

– Sladjana RS from Atlanta, GA

=========================================================================

The training was excellent. I was unable to travel for training and this program offered me the flexibility of training at home at a time that was convenient for me. You were very patient and I really enjoyed training with you.
– Virginia Lopez from North Miami, FL
=========================================================================
Think how good it will feel when you finally take the mystery out of what a freight broker is and how they do what they do.

Once you own this manual, you will learn about skills that you can use for the rest of your life no matter what type of business you end up in.

Skills that nobody can ever take from you. Skills that are timeless – and that will work today, tomorrow … and probably 100 years from now.

I’m referring specifically to the essential skills needed in your brokerage. Here they are:

  • Cash management,
  • Customer acquisition strategies,
  • Setting up operations, and
  • Planning and forecasting (you may add Personnel if you grow a large company)

For those who have never started or run a small business, we discuss these core business fundamentals. You have to master ALL of them – not just one or two.

Make no mistake about it – this is no get-rich-quick scheme. You have to get prepared – professionally and mentally. We can help with both. You have to prove yourself to others starting out. It takes time. But once you get established, you can expect to reap 10 to 20 times your initial cost – or much more.

Here’s Just a Small Taste of What You Will Discover in This Training:

  • One, you will learn the nuts and bolts of freight brokering – and I mean the nuts and bolts, including other related business, credit, financial and legal information,
  • Two, you will use powerful Load Manager spreadsheets that are provided in the hand outs. With these, you will monitor your performance and your shipper’s performance to show you where to focus your time, energy and money. You won’t need expensive software,
  • Three, you will learn how to evaluate not only your progress and your shipper’s progress, but your degree of success or failure with different geographic areas (called “lanes”),
  • Four, you will learn some laser-sharp marketing strategies that will help you go where no one else is going to find loads,
  • Five, you will become mentally prepared as you learn what others will expect from you, and, what you can expect from others,
  • Six, you will learn how not to be afraid of calling on shippers and entering into negotiations,
  • Seven, you will learn how to avoid, or reduce the chance of assuming, broker liability,
  • Eight, two conflicting demands you will have to deal with are discussed,
  • Nine, three, essential personal skill sets you need to possess,
  • Ten, how to speed up collections from customers,
  • Eleven, current legal issues that brokers must deal with,
  • Twelve, why you need not be afraid of driverless trucks for decades,
  • Plus more …

You Are the Center of Attention When You Train with Us

For most people, getting into freight brokering is a big step. I understand this. And, it’s gotten more expensive so you need to exercise more caution. There are a number of other training options out there – some much cheaper – so, how do you sort it all out? First, look for those who provide a ton of free or low-cost information BEFORE they hit you up with their offer.

Also, what kind of support after formal training can you expect from a training program? Are you going to get the door shut in your face if you need some input or questions answered later on down the road?

What about classroom training where other trainers try to load up as many students as possible? Our small group, live training here in El Paso has usually no more than three or four individuals.

YOU are the center of attention – you will be remembered – we are accessible during and after training.

What Do You Think It Would Cost If You Trained Elsewhere?

If you train elsewhere, you may be looking at a week or more away from home. You may be getting into a program without any post-training support. You may be competing with 10-15 others in class. While learning in a larger group setting may have some value, it could easily end up with one or several people dominating the conversation with issues that are not relevant for you. And, an hour before lunch (or sooner), “everybody” starts whispering about where they’re going to eat.

And, some training sessions are sometimes punctuated with jokes. While I’m not opposed to humor, my sessions stick with business and jokes, if any, are spontaneous and of short duration.

So, what kind of cost would you put on all this IF you had to endure any or all of the above? I don’t know myself. You tell me. Especially important is post-training support. My people love the fact that they can call or email me with questions anytime after formal training ends.

Let’s Outline What You Receive in Our
Comprehensive and Detailed Training

? The freight / truck broker training programs cover everything you need to get properly established

You will learn everything you need to know to get set up and to operate a successful freight broker business. We start with various required applications for your broker authority. We do these applications together when you select the telephone and Internet or live training or with the live training in El Paso. You learn where to find shippers, how to take the order, how to calculate rates, how to use the load boards, how to book loads, how to pre-qualify motor carriers, invoicing options, collection strategies, various business applications including current legal issues that impact brokers, plus much, much more.

? My freight broker training is step-by-step instruction.

You receive an easy-to-read training manual that contains six major training topics, handouts, videos and bonuses. You won’t be scratching your head wondering what to do after this training.

? My 1-on-1 telephone and Internet or live training is customized for YOU.

With the one-on-one telephone instruction or live training, we answer your questions REAL TIME. You are not left hanging. On the last day of live training, if we have time, we’ll make some actual phone calls to potential customers. My clients love doing this – very revealing.

? My 1-on-1 telephone and Internet training accommodates YOUR schedule. And for the live training, just call to ask about scheduling for the days you desire – week days or weekends (with a surcharge) – I am here for you. Just give me a 10 to 14 day notice on the live training.

We work around YOUR schedule – not the other way around.

? You can expect the formal telephone and online training to span 3-4 weeks; and thereafter, you have unlimited support.

? With my freight broker training, you gain a competitive edge.

Many are getting into brokering because it appears to be simple and easy. They usually don’t last long without proper experience or training. In the meantime, they bug it up for the serious brokers. With our program, you will be able to compete with the biggest and “best” – that’s a fact!

? This training includes Load Manager spreadsheets as a BONUS to monitor each load. It includes a Sample Business Plan as a BONUS, a Broker-Carrier Agreement as a BONUS, two ready-to-use database templates as BONUSES, nearly 100 blog posts as a BONUS, cash flow templates as BONUSES and other materials that surpass anything else provided by other training programs.

? My freight or truck broker training is affordable. We have contact information at the bottom of this page for SBA micro financing if desired.

You get great value here by avoiding other programs that require you paying for a lot of overhead, travel related expenses or even expensive software. Plus some training options fail to deliver and – how can you recover from this?

? For the 1-on-1 telephone and Internet option, can you actually learn it over the telephone? The answer is simple: if you can run an entire business over the phone and Internet, you can certainly get trained in the same manner.

You can sometimes expect very passionate, interactive and dynamic sessions between you and the trainer with either the live or telephone and online training option.

? You benefit from my CPA experience. Why does this matter? I have learned a lot about business finances as well as marketing.

? Use my 30+ years’ experience in working with small business start-ups. I know what works and sometimes, what won’t work.

Now, you’re probably wondering how and why I can do all those things. Let me explain …

  • For whichever training program you choose, it is the result of hundreds and hundreds hours of preparation. The “heavy” part is now complete except for updates when needed.
  • Much of my time, in addition to training, is spent reading articles, blog posts, viewing videos and researching many websites. Learning and teaching are my passions.
  • Once you decide to train with me, my system for getting you set-up and properly instructed is down pat.
  • My business education and experience allows me to not only understand your situation but to provide alternatives for your consideration.
  • My patience is unending. I have many clients where English is their second-language. Some start to apologize for their speaking ability – my comment is, NEVER apologize.
  • Some clients start to apologize for their lack of business experience – again, I tell them to NEVER apologize. EVERYBODY started from ground zero, not knowing anything. Some forget this.
  • The point here is – I try to get clients to work from their positions of strength and don’t get hung up on the weak areas. Things flow a lot smoother when this is understood.
  • You can expect the formal part of telephone and online training to be done in 10-12 hours (as a guide) – thereafter, you have unlimited support. We provide support until you get to the point where you know what you need to know – and you’ll tell me when that is.

This is a powerful, effective and efficient system. This is the best freight broker training you’ll ever find! Our freight broker/truck broker training puts you in business quicker than anything else and without losing the quality that you’ll need to be successful. You will use our training manual, handouts and videos as resources for months and perhaps years after training.

Consider These Questions …You Should Expect a “Yes” for Each One

There is a lot of confusion surrounding the freight broker training field. I want to give you 6 criteria or elements you absolutely, positively must have in any training option you obtain.

  • Does your freight broker trainer have REAL freight broker experience ?
  • Can you train without having to purchase expensive software ?
  • Is the training “nuts & bolts”?
  • Is your training one-on-one or, at least, very interactive ?
  • Does the cost of your training fit your budget? Are you getting VALUE ?
  • Has your trainer ever owned and operated ANY business ?
