What is a Freight Agent
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.
Maybe you’re just beginning your career as a freight agent and trying to figure out how to start out on the right foot. Maybe you’ve been in the business for years and are starting to notice that the industry is changing. Either way, it’s vital for you to recognize the keys to success as a freight broker agent in order to grow your business.
