When it comes to using agents in your freight broker business, you are looking at an entirely different type of business compared to just running a brokerage. There are managerial and operational requirements that demand a lot of attention.
Because of the extra ‘dimension’ involved in using agents, it is essential that brokers learn, and deal with, the more important issues and requirements BEFORE bringing agents on board.
The major topics included in this eBook are:
Your Business Model,
The Concept of ‘Agency’,
Setting Up Your Operations: Brokerage and Agency,
Recruiting to ‘Win’, and,
Growing Your Business Even More.
Do NOT become paralyzed due to all the uncertainties in setting up a broker agency. By taking action now, you will be giant steps ahead of those who are chasing their tails or getting bogged down in a sea of confusion.
If you are saying to yourself, ‘I know what I want to do. It is just that I am unable to exactly explain it. And, besides, I do NOT know where to begin’ ….. then this book is for you.
