FMS Logistics in Middletown, Ohio said: For those of you that are asking questions about getting setup as a freight broker, there are many ways to do this. If you have any questions let me know, I would be willing to help anyone out that needs it. Hell with going to a school and having someone in a class room teach you how do it. If you want to learn that bad I would be more then willing to have you come in to my Company and sit with me for a week and learn the ropes for a couple of hundred $. That way you get real hands on experience, and may even be able to offer jobs to the right people working from your home. Don't waste your money on a class room, send me an email at mfoster5502@hotmail.com and I will get you started.[/QUOTE ]

Thank you for your advise . My name is Shirley I am very serous about taking the next step in the trucking and transportation industry . I am currently an owner operator , I have over 14 years of experience in the field. I understand that people think that this is a quick way to make unlimited income yet I am a realist and understand that to be successful it takes drive ambition , motivation , never ending perseverance . Interpersonal skills as well as the ability to build and maintain lasting relationships, treating others with respect even when others do not treat you with respect. I feel that being open to learn new things and the wisdom to use it is a must.I have know people with college degrees that were unable to achieve their goals or dreams I feel that education never hurt anyone it could be a door just waiting to be opened. Thank you so much for you the information that you was able to share with me . I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you

Ok I know this has been asked many times on here and a lot of people have given good advise. But I still have no idea how somebody without a book of business can get into this line of work. I am extremely interested in getting the experience and building a book up. Yet how do you accomplish this when every company I have spoken with and every help wanted ad I have read demands a book of business. I want my own business and I really would like to be an agent. So please any help any leads heck a smack in the head to point me in the right direction would be so appreciated.

Can a freight broker agent position be performed by an American expat living overseas? I also have someone (brother) who would assist and they are in Phoenix, AZ. What is needed to get started? Is anyone hiring agents? We have adequate technology skills and equipment.

A longtime friend of mine, started her trucking company, and she has authority, and all the bells and whistles. I recently lost my job as a dispatcher, and she encouraged me to join her company as a broker agent with a 70/30 split. I will be working from my home, I have a laptop, fax/copier/scanner, long distance line, all the packets when it comes to carriers, and shippers, even broker to broker stuff, she even gave me a few leads. I am still a bit overwhelmed and would love for a seasoned agent to mentor me as I enter into a new era.

John D Thomas in Juarez, Mexico said: Priscilla,

With the type of claim you are making, I think you owe it the readers to verify that you are indeed consistently getting $3K-$5K per load.

Your claim would be verified if you would provide at least 2-3 INDEPENDENT sources that can basically substantiate and guarantee that your figures are correct.

Are you up to the challenge?

We are waiting.

yea he is right, he makes 3-5k per load because he is one of those "screw everyonews pockets" type of guy he keeps it all and sells the load off to some hungry owner operator trying to move his tuck

The Ports do not give you freight. The Shippers who have loads comin give you the freight. You would typically get this freight from a freight forwarder or the actual shipper who is utlizing the freight forwarder.

Well I think I know the instructor and he knows nothing about moving freight. This however does not stop people form paying him $700 for their authority which they could get for $300 if they fill out the application themselves. He is a former DOT guy basically nothing more than a former bean counter who checks for rules and regulations. He has never moved a load in his life I bet. Does he have a freight brokerage? I do not think so. If you like cruises though hey go for it. Whats the worst you will get besides a good drunk on!

Customers are easy to get. You better have a good carrier base if you want to move freight.

That's because most who enter the industry are so poorly trained and have no idea what there doing. They all hope to find the answer on these boards or from someone who says there a mentor. They soon find out in most cases that there mentor is as clueless as them. What's the old saying "The Blind Leading The Blind"
