Big thanks to the author

Taught me valuable information on my journey to being a freight broker. Found this book to be informative and helpful. The author has done a great job explaining the start-up process, the forms you need to fill out, the insurance you need to buy and the membership you need to have in order to see and bid on loads.

best book!!

Confirms some things that I will be experienced in the Brokering business. Also gave a lot of information I didn't know. However, do be disillusioned that you can start up your own freight broker business without a reputable history of having all your ducks lined in a row with financial lenders.
