Dear Future Freight Broker,
Freight brokering is one of the most solid, realistic and attainable business opportunities available. As a freight broker, you will find shippers who have cargo to transport and you will contract with motor carriers who are ready, willing and able to haul the loads.Becoming a freight broker, however, is much more than just locating customers and finding trucks. If you are inexperienced or new to the business, you have a decision to make. Are you going to purchase training or materials that only tell you about the business?
Or are you going to get trained properly so you learn ALL the details about What to Do and How to Do Them?
You are running a business and, as such, you will need more than just a half-hearted approach.
Freight brokers are also known as property brokers, truck brokers and transportation brokers. Shippers and motor carriers become the major players in the game. At the end of our training, you will have the tools and knowledge to work confidently with all these players.
In this gigantic industry, there are thousands and thousands of potential customers waiting for YOU right NOW!
Find out HERE and NOW how YOU can get on the road to the freedom and secure the money and independence that you seek. The income potential is unlimited. Your start-up and overhead expenses are minimal.
Thousands and thousands of products are being shipped every day. Most have probably been initiated by a freight broker. This industry is for REAL, it's here to stay and it's only getting bigger.
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 read on.
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.
Many individuals have spent countless dollars and wasted countless hours on frivolous ventures that promise nothing but lining the pockets of those who are selling them. In this website you will learn how easy it is to get established with your broker authority and how to operate successfully as a freight broker.
If this is what you are seeking - then this might be the most important letter you'll ever read.
Here's why ...
I have been training people over the telephone and Internet, as well as right here in El Paso, Texas, to get set up and established in their Freight Broker business for over 10 years now. My freight broker training programs are based upon my actual, previous freight brokerage business - Atex Logistics, Inc. - PLUS my 25+ years working with small business start-ups.
The training programs are comprehensive, affordable and effective. The materials are laid out so you can get the "big picture". Further, they will keep you focused on all the necessary details of freight brokering.
Take a Quick Look Here at
"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 Williams from Salisbury, NC
My freight broker training really works - 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
My freight broker training can help YOU - 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.
But, be careful here ...
Many individuals think they can learn this business on their own.
The business concept is simple enough - find shippers and then find trucks. However, when you strike out on your own you risk being perceived as incompetent and unprofessional.
Knowing the correct procedures for getting set up and working effectively and efficiently with shippers and carriers will mark you as a professional.
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 $400 deals may not be what you really need IF you are serious in becoming a professional freight broker.
Now, right now, you may be asking yourself these questions:
Why should I be listening to John? What are his qualifications? What are his credentials? Just where is he coming from? These are legitimate questions. Without a face-to-face relationship, there’s a good reason to be skeptical. I’m that way and I expect most people to be the same way.
So, let me explain why you should be listening to me.
First, my accounting background and my passion to explore 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”.
For one engagement, I was hired to review, train and help small business start-ups for a large, multi-use real estate project that encompassed over 300 acres, including retail, living and other mixed-use projects.
In one particular consulting venture, I collected financial statements from all types of contractors seeking work. My purpose was to evaluate the financial strength of these applicants to ensure they had the financial resources to relocate part of their operations to Alaska or Canada.
These were real-life business situations where decisions were made one way or the other. We weren’t playing games.
Second, after years of marketing research on various ventures and after preparing countless cash flow projections, some people came to recognize me as one of the most "marketing-oriented" accountants in the country.
A business can have the most powerful financial and accounting systems in place; but, in my opinion, no business will get off the ground unless it has created a solid marketing plan, identifying and servicing a specific target market.
Engaging my training and working as a freight broker will help you do exactly that.
I could go on and on – but it's difficult to summarize over 25 years of business experience in just a couple of short paragraphs. But you get the picture.
I live and breathe, working with small business owners. And you will benefit from this ‘obsession’.
Eventually, I got into freight brokering because of the benefits it offered.
Before I got into this brokering, I spoke with about 20 freight brokers here in El Paso. 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.
My training programs are the result of not only my own freight broker experience but the many years of real life business know-how. So, when it comes to freight brokering, I know what is needed, I know what is real and I sometimes know what is - well, what is just plain dumb and unrealistic.
Here's a satisfied client:
"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
For most people, it's a big step to get into brokering. I understand this. But you won't find any better training and materials for the price offered here. The bottom line is - you receive tremendous value.
There are many training options out there. But how often do you find a ton of free or low-cost information BEFORE they hit you with their offer? Not that many.
My website here, my blog and all the other related information will give you tremendous insight into this industry as well as the training programs.
We will never be the cheapest training program; but we will offer the best value. Don't pass over this lightly.
If you take training elsewhere, you would most likely travel out of town and be competing with 10-15 others who want a lot of attention. Plus you would need to leave your home or family for at least one week.
... Further, with some programs, once training is over, most likely that's it. It's over. It's adios. Good luck on follow-up support.Or you may try to learn this on your own which is not very cost effective.
To learn this on your own you might lose whatever money you spent. Equally important, however – you’d lose the time you wasted trying to figure things out. Who knows what the exact cost would be here?
The business concept for freight brokering is very simple, as mentioned above; find shippers, find trucks, put them together and collect a commission.
This apparent simplicity, however, is deceiving. With both the shipper and the motor carrier there are many detailed, step-by-step procedures. If you mess one up - you've probably messed up the entire sequence.
The result? You've lost a client or a load or both. And ultimately you just might lose your business.
Here are the facts: train with one of my programs and you'll be working with an expert who knows how to deliver comprehensive information that will get you up and running in about 30 days or less.
Equally important, you'll avoid making costly errors.
In our training materials, you receive cash flow templates so you can project income and expenses. You receive a sample business plan based upon my own freight broker business. You may modify this business plan and make it your own. You receive spreadsheets to manage your loads from the time you take the order until the time you get paid.
THESE SPREADSHEETS ARE SOMETHING YOU MOST LIKELY WON'T FIND IN ANY OTHER TRAINING - we'll show you how to record, monitor and track your performance where you can make smart and quick decisions on WHICH shippers to pursue for more business and WHICH ones you just want to dump.
You will learn how to evaluate not only shippers but your truckers and lanes as well.
You'll gain the confidence of knowing what to do, when to do it, how to do it, with whom to do it, and why you're doing it.
So what is all this going to cost?

" John, you did a wonderful job with the training
material and you certainly helped me gain much knowledge over the
telephone and our discussions in covering the various areas. And as

me to answer my questions and were quick in responding back.
John Hunter from O'Fallon, MO

John McMurray from Youngstown, FL
"From my perspective at this point the training was all that I wanted it to be. The only thing that I could have wanted to be different would be a sample script (example only) for conversations with both the shipper and the carrier to get set up initially."
Seth Foutz from Buhl, ID
"I had originally planned to take this course in a classroom setting. I am so glad I did not. The last thing John said to me was: We are always here for you to assist you and answer your questions. I like that a lot. I didn’t just receive the training and got thrown out entirely on my own. It is nice to know that I have a confident, solid support system for as long as I need it. I will most definitely recommend this program to anyone who is interested.."

Laura Ogletree from El Paso, TX

Warning: Do NOT buy any Freight Broker Training unless it meets the following 6 criteria.
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?
Has your trainer ever owned and operated his or her own business?
You could easily spend $3,000-$6,000 or more for other training that requires traveling away from home or other non-essential materials - and you STILL may not be certain that you will receive real value for not only the money spent but for the time involved.
So what's the catch? Why am I so much more effective than most other freight broker training programs?
It's really quite simple. Here are a few reasons ...
I work alone for the most part out of my home and with very little overhead expense.
You avoid paying for multiple, salaried individuals (trainer and staff support, i.e.), rent, equipment and other overhead costs.
You get comprehensive training - but I don't needlessly dwell on material that you can easily explore on your own after receiving proper preparation.
Training and materials are very well structured with a logical flow that is as efficient as it is effective.
The training fee is not "padded" in order to turn around and give you some freebies.
Don't be mistaken and think that brokering is seasonal. This industry is gigantic and runs year 'round. Smart people will train now, get some good experience for several months and then get involved in hauling potentially every product under the sun. Get your training now!
