5 Things Freight Agents Shouldn’t Be Doing
The trucking industry shows no sign of slowing down, but the number of brokers who treat their agents with respect seems to decreasing. It’s a competitive market. Freight agents need to be smart about doing business with a broker. Our business model is different than most other logistics companies. Here’s what you shouldn’t be doing, because we do it better.
1. Don’t work with brokers who are in competition with you.
We don’t have in-house brokers and guarantee that we won’t steal your clients or bring them in house.
2. Don’t let a broker steal your clients and your hard work.
One thing that sets us apart is that we only get new business through our freight agents. We want you to succeed, because we need you.
3. Don’t stress over the risks.
We carry contingent liability insurance, errors and omissions insurance, and broker and military bonds. You don’t have to stress over the risks you face in your business.
4. Don’t sign a non-compete or binding contract.
You should have the right to work with any clients and industry. Freight-Tec freight agents aren’t limited by non-compete clauses or binding contracts. We won’t hinder your ability to do business.
5. Don’t worry about the overhead.
