It takes hard work and dedication, but with the right tools and team work attitude, anyone with the right freight agent training can become successful within the transportation industry.

Most freight brokerage firms will not bring on a new freight agent even if they have had some sort of training. They will ask for a book of business because this truly shows the firm the individual has knowledge and can be trusted to work under their freight broker company authority. There are two major factors that will keep a freight broker firm from hiring a new contract freight agent and those are it takes time for the new freight agent to learn and it can and usually cost the freight broker firm several thousands of dollars to work with a new freight agent.

It costs a brokerage time and money to take on new agents because of the amount of work assuring the freight agent is qualified and capable of performing. Plus, all freight agents are expected to secure their own shipper customers.  In most cases, the brokerage will not be giving you loads to move. Freight agents without any experience are simply an expense with only a possibility of revenue to a freight brokerage and considered to be a possible high liability issue.  

Freight brokerages also consider the cost of having to oversee inexperienced agents.  Even with the best training, most people will need some sort of guidance and support. Inexperienced agents can make mistakes and these mistakes can be very damaging to a freight broker firm since the industry is regulated by the FMCSA. Most firms do not have a structure to baby sit new agents due to the loss of revenue the company incurs during the first few months of trying to oversee the new freight agent.
