Write your own ticket to success matching carriers to shippers Looking for an easy-to-start business that can turn a profit in a very short time? Then you should definitely consider starting a freight brokerage business. The majority of goods shipped in the United States are sent by truck. Without freight brokers, most of those goods would end up sitting in a warehouse or on the docks. As a freight broker, you'll match carriers with shippers and make a healthy fee in the process. A freight brokerage business is simple to start. You don't need to specialize education or a knowledge of the shipping industry, and you can run your own business right out of your home. Our book tells you everything you need to know, including: How to find reliable carriers How to successfully market your services What rates and commissions you should charge Record-keeping requirements Tips for hiring staff Techniques for growing your business Common pitfalls and how to avoid them This book also includes a glossary of common terms, real-life tips and hints from successful freight brokers, as well as preprinted forms and worksheets you can use in running your business.
