Learning How to Broker Freight with Links


 Brokering freight is a cut throat and highly competitive way of life.  It means spending hours on the phone trying to coordinate the movement of freight with carriers and shippers. I have been researching information on the topic, but for anyone interested in this line of work, it is important to do your research and learn as much as you can from people that are experienced in transportation.  It is a huge industry with its own language, politics, and culture.


Here are some links with free information on Freight Brokering:
