Live Classroom Training Sessions

We provide live classroom training sessions that address the ins-and-outs of brokering freight. This in-depth single-day session runs the gambit from taking open loads through the “trucking cycle” to delivery, invoicing and completion.

You will learn some tricks of the trade, that:

  • Save you on your overall freight costs;
  • Maximize your ability to source the right truck for the right load;
  • Streamline work processes, ensure proper documentation is in-place, and take a proactive approach to avoid many common pitfalls and problems;
  • Reduce those ‘hidden liabilities’ by ensuring trucks you hire do not create unwanted exposures to you and your company;
  • Understand the end-to-end processes involved in reducing foreseeable problems and avoiding common pitfalls that disrupt your days.
Who this course is targeted for:

  • Shippers that want to control their own freight movement;
  • Brokers that want to increase their ability to book loads and keep their customers happy; and
  • Carriers that want to understand the broker process or are considering adding brokerage services.
In all cases, you will understand the brokering process – whether your objectives are to actually broker freight (your own or for others) or to be better able to work with brokerage professionals on a daily basis.

While this live classroom session makes use of a”simulated” version of The DOT Directory’s Full Service Plan, you are not required to use it. You will learn the process behind professional freight brokering regardless of what system or approach you select to use. You will also have the opportunity to interact with and share notes and experiences with other attendees.
