From: Dennis Brown - Owner FreightBrokerBootCamp.com & CEO of LDi (2003-2013).
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!

P.S.S. Some people laughed when I said I going to start a freight brokerage. They said, "You don't know anything about freight or trucking" and they were right. I guess a little know how and hard work go a long way. I proved them wrong and you can do the same!
How long does it take to get started as a freight broker or freight agent?
Typically, you can get started within 30-45 days.
Can I learn at my own pace?
Of course. FreightBrokerBootCamp.com was designed for the “working class” who need the flexibility of self-paced study.
How much does it cost to get into this business?
Our online training program only cost $98 for 6 months full access! The tools you require to do business will depend on your individual needs and long term plans. In fact, we’ve assembled an entire section to answer this question. (Section 1.9 – Startup Expense and Decision Matrix)
Do you offer support?
Yes, as a member, you may use our administrative support desk for assistance. This enables us to communicate with you during business hours, regardless of your time zone. If your question cannot be resolved via the system, we will arrange for someone to contact you by telephone.
Will I receive a hard copy of the material?
Yes and no. Printed materials are expensive to produce. Our mission is to make this affordable for everyone. By making this available from your members area, we’re able to eliminate unnecessary publication expenses and pass those savings onto you. Further benefits include immediate access and updated material. But for those of you who insist on reading from paper, you may print the material using the “print” link at the top of each page.
I have a partner. Can I share my account?
You can, but it’s not recommended. Our system tracks the number of IP addresses used to access the account and may temporarily disable an account it feels is “abusing” the system.
Is your system compatible with Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista and MAC?
Yes, our system is a web-based membership site and cross-platform compatible.
Will I be able to view the videos?
Yes. Due to the influx of people using laptop computers with wireless cards, we created the videos in Flash (.SWF) and .MP4 format which can render videos at virtually any Internet connection speed, even dial-up.
I’m already a licensed freight broker. Can I use this to educate my agents?
Yes. Our material is tailored in a comprehensive manner so that new freight agents not only understand their responsibilities, but also those of the broker. The better your agents understand “why” something must be done, the easier it will be to have them carry out tasks. Moreover, we discuss freight customer acquisition tactics that should help new agents cultivate their own customer base.
How much money can I make as a freight broker or freight agent?
If you are a motivated self-starter, your earning potential is virtually unlimited. While some people choose to work independently on their own, others opt for nationwide agent networking and maximum income potential. There are too many variables to consider to give you a one-size-fits-all answer. There are agents who earn as little as $100 per day working part time, and brokers who make several thousand dollars per day. Ultimately, your success is dependent upon your level of ambition.
Do you offer job placement?
Of course not. Who wants a “job?” Our system is designed to take the “j-o-b” out of the equation and prepare you for self-employment by teaching you how to create work for yourself. In fact, you’ll learn how to reach for the other end of the spectrum by leveraging and multiplying your efforts.
Will I be "certified freight broker" after completing this material?
Actually, you do not need a “certificate” to become a freight broker. Although you do need the proper “authority” which is a grant of legal permission issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
What about the bond requirement?
The freight broker bond is another area that we cover in great detail. Often times, people are shoved through the paperwork process before they understand whats going on. Getting a bond is not difficult. But before you step out to obtain a bond, there are things you need to consider. Your bond can eithercost you or pay you back over time. (See Section 1.8 Surety Bond Vs. Trust Fund, for details)
Do you supply the forms I will need to get started?
Yes. As a member, you’ll have immediate access to a number of forms & agreements, including our customizable Contract Generator. Freight broker forms & agreements can be tailored to your individual needs.
I've been trucking for over 25 years. Is this something I can do too?
Absolutely. In fact, becoming a freight broker or freight agent is often the most sensible career change for owner-operators and company drivers alike. It allows you to embrace your experience and maximize your earning potential based on the knowledge you already have.
I live in Canada. Am I required to secure a property broker authority?
Yes. Canadian residents who wish to broker freight within the United States must also apply for their broker authority.
I am a licensed motor carrier. Can I append my new broker authority to my existing motor carrier authority?
Yes, you can. However, it is not advisable. Doing so allows too much room for legal complications and heightened insurance premiums.
