4.0 out of 5 stars Good information May 24, 2011
By DLE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A lot of good practical information. I've read several books, articles on the freight brokering business and so far this is one of the best I've seen. Many of the other books, use the phrases take it from me or believe me you don't want to get involved with this etc etc etc. This book has very good tips, suggestions, and ideas and is more up to date on the current technology and terminology. The other books are more than 5 years old.

If you want to get a good grasp on what the business is about spend the money on this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Info available elsewhere June 2, 2013
By Kevin M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most of the info here is available elsewhere. I've seen it word for word other places. I think it is just government written without a copyright and therefore can be reprinted. Search for gov't documents on how to become a freight broker and you should find most of the info for free, or buy the book if the convenience is worth it. It gives decent general info for someone brand new and looking for a generization of freight brokerage, but not really worth more than that imo.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good for a newbie broker November 2, 2010
Format:Paperback
pretty good "General Knowledge" book about brokering. If you are looking about brokering freight this book will give you a pretty good overview.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro to Freight Brokerage December 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Helpful if you're just starting out and want to learn more about this space since it provides a basic overview of the typical business model along with valuable tips and pitfalls to avoid. I would have liked to see more industry vocabulary and jargon (there is more than what book provides) along with typical key performance indicators that a freight broker would track. Note: the book really just focuses on freight brokerage with respect to trucks. Not much (if at all) on freight forwarding and import/export.

3.0 out of 5 stars wouldn't suggest buying January 18, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought the book was good but not if you are an agent looking for information. Geared strictly towards broker and the information in the book is on-line in the broker agent forums and cost nothing. I would not purchase

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not an easy business to start July 20, 2014
Format:Paperback
This is not an easy business to start. You cant be Joe newbie and think you can start freight brokering from scratch. No, you really need to have connections. I love how the book recommends that you work for a brokerage company first before starting your own. The problem with that is that no brokerage company will hire you without a book of clientele. That is with any brokerage firm. I wish these books were written by people who have actually worked in the industry.
