This book clenches over 30 power-packed pages of condensed and digestible information on securing your "freight broker license." Each day, the FMCSA receives over 700 applications for Authority. And while most applications are for Trucking Authority, there have been an increasing number of applications for "Freight Broker Authority." Sadly, many applicants entering the freight brokerage business don't make it past the first year. Why is that so? The simple answer is that securing ones freight broker authority is a license issue, not a business issue. And while most Application Service Providers do an outstanding and punctual job in assisting new freight brokers with the application process, they offer little in terms of forethought concerning business objectives, strategies, and resources. The idea is not to survive, but to succeed.
Securing your "freight broker license" is one thing. Becoming a wildly successful truck broker in the freight industry is another. However, the path by which one soars to success or plummets to failure depends on how well or how poorly they execute plans.

The second purpose of this book is to “cut the fat,” giving you the information you need most — while getting straight to the point, without a lot of excess jargon.
