If you listened to my audio intro you already know that I am living proof that you can make huge money as a freight broker or freight agent! The fact of the matter is you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to make money as a freight broker but like any business, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.
When I started I had absolutely no experience in trucking or logistics and now do over $3,000,000 a month in sales!
Freight brokers help shippers that need to move freight from point A to point B by finding a carrier (trucking company) that will haul the freight for slightly less than the shipper is willing to pay them… thus the term BROKER!
In other words freight brokers, sometimes referred to as load brokers, truck brokers, or transportation brokers, are all middle men that match available shipper freight with available trucks while earning between 10% and 35% profit per shipment.
That means brokers typically earn between $100 to $500 per shipments but I have earned as much as $5,175 per shipment just for finding a truck to haul our customer’s freight!
Now the only question is how many loads do you think you can you move per day… 1, 2, 10 or more? Before we get to that.
No special background is required to become a freight broker. With the proper determination and training almost anyone can become a freight broker.
Supply-and-Demand. It never stops – Ever! So as long as there are people on Earth, there will remain a continuous market for freight to be moved. Unlike many other industries, the transportation business has two extremely valuable elements with virtually NO limits: consumption and production.
Every day people and businesses buy, sell and consume products! You know what? Those products must be shipped and year after year freight brokers control and move more and more of the worlds freight!
Everything you use or consume throughout your day has likely been on a truck at one point. Freight is everywhere and the demand for transportation will only increase with time. You simply need to know how and where to look to find it. No, it’s not rocket science, but like anything there is a right way and wrong way to do it and the difference between the two can be either costly or profitable!
I just finished your online training program last night and not only am I satisfied but I am extremely excited to put what I have learned to work. I am happy that I decided to use this program over the other company I was considering which was asking for $2,500. I believe that your program not only prepared me for this industry but has quickly placed me in the right frame of mind to pursue this career to its fullest.
I have worked for (name withheld) for 30 day’s have only 5 pending shippers and 2 carriers with no loads I spent almost $1,500 and 3 days at a school. The school never taught me to use the load boards and just said here is Thomas and google but never how to use them I have learned more in 30 minutes from you. I particularly like the videos and the way the training breaks thing down into easy to understand concepts. Thank you ever so much.
Just a follow up note to say thanks for the great training material. We are now in our fourth month of our new venture and your training and tools have been a tremendous help and at times, even a morale booster. I started as a one person operation and in this short period of time have grown to three agents and one clerical plus myself. With the pace we are going we should be well on our way to becoming a solid financially secure company. Every additional employee I have added and will add in the future will be required to read and learn your material as part of their training.
Thank you Freight Broker Boot Camp for creating such an effective, efficient and affordable training program. This program is concise but yet contains all the necessary and important step-by-step details that are a MUST to launch a start-up as a freight broker or freight agent.
All I can say is THANK YOU! My wife accusing me of being too analytical when I make decisions but this is one time when I think my homework and due diligence in comparing virtually all the different freight broker training programs has paid off. I saved over $2,000 by joining FreightBrokerBootCamp.com as opposed to traveling 1000 miles and sitting in a hotel room for 5 days. That extra money sure will come in handy in promoting my new business!
