A freight agent is responsible for sales and matching carriers with customer needs. Most agents work from their own homes, under the direction and authority of a licensed freight broker. Thus they have little or no liability, but are able to earn a significant income based upon the profit their customers generate. Agents interact with both shipping customers and motor carriers in an effort to ensure their customers' freight is picked up and delivered on time, in good condition with no problems. Most of a freight agent's day consists of soliciting new customers, providing freight rates, sourcing carriers, negotiating with shippers/carriers, dispatching trucks, scheduling pickup/deliveries and solving problems that could potentially delay or damage a shipment.

There is no better time today to become a freight agent. The logistics industry is in need of great professional agents and learning how to become a freight agent is a wise business decision.

Learn the difference between a freight broker and freight agent Here

The purpose of our Freight Agent Training curriculum is to help individuals who desire to affordably learn the true concepts of being a Property Broker otherwise known as a Freight Broker. The program content is an accumulation of 20 years of freight brokering and trucking experience.Changes in the transportation brokering industry have been confusing and changes are happening every year. Its imperative for a person to understand, learn and adapt these changes by the federal regulatory division of the FMCSA.  The only brokering of freight now permitted by the FMCSA is done by “Licensed Property Brokering”, as defined, as of this writing, as 49 CFR 371.2. This brokering definition is what our curriculum all about.

The Key To Success Is Understanding What is A Freight Broker Agent 

What is a Freight Broker Agent ?

They work with shippers and help them to connect and on-board new carriers to move their freight loads.

 

They are also called Freight Brokers, who are dedicated to finding a freight carrier (truck, train, ship, air) that will move the freight for slightly less than the shipper is willing to pay. We can also describe them as load brokers, truck brokers, or transportation brokers, or 3pl companies. Freight Brokers match available shippers and available trucks while earning upwards of  20% profit per shipment. You are not considered a freight dispatcher but you do work with both the shipper and carrier. With LFS freight broker training school we will teach you how to start brokering freight with our in -house brokerage. Once the freight broker agent training is complete, we will help you with Agent placement within a freight broker firm.

Here are some more freight broker words that might help you understand the logistics terminology we use on a daily bases:

  • Freight broker. A freight broker is the middleman who connects shippers and carriers.

  • Shipper. A shipper is an individual or business that has products or goods to transport.

  • Motor carrier. A motor carrier is a company that provides truck transportation. There are two types of motor carriers: private (a company that provides truck transportation of its own cargo) and for hire (a company that is paid to provide truck transportation of cargo belonging to others).

  • Freight forwarder. Often confused with freight brokers, freight forwarders are significantly different. Forwarders typically take possession of the goods, consolidate numerous smaller shipments into one large shipment, then arrange for transport of that larger shipment using various shipping methods, including land, air and water carriers.

  • Import-export broker. These people are facilitators for importers and exporters. Import-export brokers interface with U.S. Customs, other government agencies, international carriers, and other companies and organizations that are involved in international freight transportation.

  • Agricultural truck broker. Generally small and operating in one area of the country, unregulated agricultural truck brokers arrange motor carrier service for exempt agricultural products.

  • Shipper's associations. Shipper's associations are exempt, nonprofit, cooperative organizations formed by shippers to reduce transportation costs by pooling shipments. Shipper's associations operate in a manner very similar to that of freight forwarders, but their service is limited to their members and is not available to the general public.
