Freight Brokerage - How to Start Your Own Business
What you'll learn
- The basics of what a freight broker is and does.
- Realistic expectations and common problems people have especially when they attempt to become freight brokers with no trucking experience.
- A view of the arena and the players in it as well as how to work better with them all.
- What the requirements to get your authority are and how to go about meeting them.
- Where to find additional information, training, tools, resources and support as you build your Freight Brokerage Business.
- Develop a step by step goal setting and task management system to keep yourself on course while you build your business.
- If you become a freight broker you will be working extensively with truck drivers, owner operators and small fleets along with your shippers and consignees. This is a different world. It has its own unique language and ways of doing things that can be learned by anyone with determination and drive to do so - even with no prior experience in trucking at all - but in the beginning will be challenging to get to a point where you are comfortable and fully competent at your job as a freight broker. I highly recommend that you take my introductory beginner level truck driving courses also so that you can begin to gain a more complete idea of what truck drivers do daily and the challenges they face. This will help you build better relationships, communicate more effectively and obtain loads more efficiently. That will help you earn more and have mutually beneficial relationships with your drivers, carriers, shippers and consignees.

Hello, and thanks for checking out my profile page.
My name is L.D. Sewell and I focus much of what I do on providing specialized information, training, and support to help people start their own businesses, do better in their work and careers and build better lives.

You can learn how you can improve your life in every area.
Become more productive, produce more income, continuously improve your knowledge and skills, perform at a higher level and become more confident as you set and achieve goal after goal systematically by following proven methods and tactics that get results.
Entrepreneurship, business management, leadership, specialized tactics, and systems have been a major interest and focus of mine my entire adult life and remain so to this day. I have been a lifelong student of personal development and productivity improvement systems, which I have utilized in every position I have ever held. Over the years I have held a variety of positions in several businesses and as an entrepreneur, I have started, owned, and operated several companies of my own along the way too.
Today I work for my own company Transport Resource Solutions LLC - which is and always will be a specialized information and training company at its core.
Of course, we keep growing and evolving and also operate as a motor carrier and we produce and market other products - our foundation is training and specialized information, both internally as we grow and externally available through our courses and publications to anyone anywhere who wants my help and our help.
Every experience has taught me numerous lessons. Many of these lessons have been not only highly beneficial but also enjoyable - others were learned the hard and painful way, and while they certainly weren't any fun they were still very valuable learning experiences.
I have owned or co-owned a number of micro and small businesses including wood crafting, medical claims processing, commercial cleaning, transportation consulting, independent recruiting, real estate investing, and soap and candle making companies.
I can help you start a business of your own.
Courses are available for Online Business startup and Offline (traditional) Business startup too.
You can also learn all about trucking - if you are interested in becoming a driver or in achieving Trucking Business Success by owning your own trucking business.
Many years ago I started my own career in trucking - just as you may be considering doing now - and if you have never considered trucking take the time to look into what it offers before you just write it off. It might surprise you.
When I started my own career I set out with the intention of making trucking my primary profession and I wanted to learn everything I possibly could about the business of trucking.
What an interesting journey it has been over the last couple of decades and continues to be even now. Over the course of my years in trucking I have held many different positions including;
Professional Truck Driver
Third Party CDL Skills Examiner
Human Resource Director
Independent Owner Operator
These experiences have helped me in countless ways to pursue many other entrepreneurial opportunities. As a result of all these experiences and from working with all kinds of people including real estate agents, investors, entrepreneurs, and with hundreds of truck drivers over many years, I am able to provide you with a unique, complete and multidimensional personal account of exactly what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur - and for those interested - exactly what it takes to become a professional truck driver, owner operator, and trucking business owner.
While trucking is a fascinating business that offers many opportunities to you - it will demand much from you in return - and It is NOT the right business for everyone.
There is something that is a right fit for you. Finding the right work or business for you is the key.
There are plenty of choices available to you - including one of the most affordable and easiest businesses to start - an Online Business as an Affiliate Marketer.
You just need to gather information and then decide which business you want to start now.
Once you know what that is you can then start focusing your efforts on learning the skills and specialized information needed to shorten your learning curve, produce better results faster and that will help you achieve your own goals.
Life is far too precious and too short to waste working in businesses, careers and at jobs you don't like - so find something you do like - that is also profitable - then learn how to get started and then just do it!
Today every lesson I have ever learned from all my personal experiences and studies, including those I continue to learn, I now teach in my courses and workshops as well as through my books, manuals, and other publications.
Life is all about choices and you do have choices.
That is my passion in life - working with and helping people who want to get ahead in life instead of just getting by to find their own courses in life, and to help those willing to do the work to make it happen.
I look forward to getting to know you and to sharing information with you to help you do better too.
Now, how can I help you...
