From Trucking to Brokering

Here is a fact:

Many in trucking work directly with freight brokers. They use freight brokers to get loads. Strangely, many of these truckers have no idea of how a broker goes about doing business. They are focused on “trucking” not “brokering”. This is understandable – to some extent. For sure, many owner operators work hand-in-hand with brokers and, yet, may be unaware of another great opportunity.

What many of these truckers may or may not understand is that they can get their own broker authority and go directly to shippers for loads. Essentially, these carriers cut out the middle man and put that money in THEIR pocket.

It’s relatively simple to actually become a freight broker; it’s more of a problem to make the transition from trucking to brokers – UNLESS, you have a blueprint to help navigate this process. This report will provide a better understanding on this process.
