Dennis Brown, an experienced freight broker, recommends creating a list of possible local freight brokers you can partner with. You should focus especially on small ones because they are more likely to give a new agent, without experience, the opportunity to get the show on the road.
In the article 'How to become a Freight Agent,' Joseph Souza stresses that you must draw the line on responsibilities and make all the payment arrangements before kick-off. Moreover, you have to make a point of checking the customer satisfaction record of the company, as it might weigh in on your decision to join forces with that company. If the broker doesn't deliver on schedule or keep his contract agreements with the customers, your best bet is to keep your distance.
