Been reading the site for a few days really getting hooked on this site, Of course, I do tend to obsess.
I`m looking to step out on my own. Freight Brokering business as an agent.
Any advice would be very appreciated.

    Hello CraigL
    A Freight Broker is Someone who basically finds trucks for companies.
    We also keep track of where the truck is, handle problems as they arise and so on.
    An Agent is someone who works under a Brokers license but has their own customers. sometime they work out of the brokers office or have their own office, or many have home based operations.
    Freight On Board.  Usually the seller will designate whether it is F.O.B. at his store/plant or if it is F.O.B. your destination. This determines who is liable for the freight risks/costs.
