Q: What information does the instructor go over in class? Click Here
A: Here are just a few things.
Q: What's the difference between a "Freight Broker" and an "Agent"?
A: BROKER: is a company that assumes all general legal requirements to operate as a freight broker.
They must have a "Broker Authority / MC#", which is registered with the government, a $75,000 "Bond or Trust" (don't worry we can get a Bond usually cost between $500 - $5,000 a year), a "Process Agent", and the UCR Registration and any state or local licensing and insurance. Broker verifies the Shippers credit and the Carrier Company licensing and insurance. They also to all the accounts payable's, receivables, and collection. Brokers keep 100% of earned income of the load that was moved between the Shipper and the Carrier.
EXAMPLE: Shipper pays $5000 for a load. You find a Carrier to haul the load for $4500. There is a $500 profit. This profit is all yours.
AGENT: is hired as an independent contractor who works under the Broker's Authority and receives a percentage of earned income of the load that was moved between the Shipper and the Carrier, but does not have to carry any license, bond or a process agent, nor do you have anything to do with accounting.
EXAMPLE: Shipper pays $5000 for a load. You find a Carrier to haul the load for $4500. There is a $500 profit. You split this with your Broker. Load pays: $500 and the Broker is splitting it 50/50% - you get paid $250.

Q: Do I have to pay all at one time for the course?
A: No. You can make just the DEPOSIT of $350 to hold your dates, but you will not receive your "Training Manual" until paid in full.
If you pay the full amount - if you request we will "Ship" you "Manual" at a charge of $25 (overnight fee $50) and we will email you a tracking number as soon as it's shipped or you will receive your Manual on the first day of class. We do ask that if you do just the deposit - that the balance be paid before attending (we can email you an invoice) - or - pay CASH for the balance due on the first day of class. This way we are not wasting valuable time. It cuts into everyone's training time!
