Although the United States may be shifting from a manufacturing to an information-based economy, there will never be a time when goods don't have to move. And since the majority of goods shipped in the United States are sent by truck, the role of freight broker is a crucial one: Without freight brokers, most of those goods would end up sitting in a warehouse or on the docks and never get to their final destinations.

As a freight broker, you can make good money, right from your home, matching carriers with shippers for a fee. It's a very easy business to start--there's no special training or knowledge of the shipping industry needed. And equipment costs are minimal--all you really need is a computer, a phone and a fax machine. Our guide will do the rest. We'll show you how to:

Locate startup funds and set your prices
Understand the legal documents you'll be dealing with
Find carriers and shippers
Market your services
Build your client base
And much more
Freight brokers fill a critical need in the United States, and there's always room in the industry for someone who can offer reasonably priced, dependable service.
