Fair Commission Split

Am I being paid a “fair” commission split for the kind of business I’m doing?

What is a “fair” split?

A “fair” split is one that takes many things into consideration. Here are a few of them:
What Freight Tec takes into consideration:

  • Trustworthiness of the Agent / Prospective Agent
  • revenue level
  • gross profit
  • credit risk of your Shippers
  • ease of doing business with your Shippers
  • (the list goes on, and for simplicy’s sake – I’ll stop here)

I notice when prospective Agents call me to find out about Freight Tec’s Agency program – the first, and most popular question they ask is “… what is your commission split?” While a fair and reasonable commision split is important to have, it is not the most important thing to have.

If a company offered you a radically high commission split, would you take it?

Would it raise any red flags to you?

What are some potential risks for you?

Here is a list of some critical issues You need to know before signing on with ANY Broker:

  • Trustworthiness of the Broker
  • Financial stability
  • Back office support
  • Hours of operation
  • Reputation in the industry
  • Policies and Procedures of the Broker

Companies in the industry offer commission splits that range from 25% – 70% being paid to the Agent. The Industry average being paid out is 50% – 60% to the Agent.
