Testimonial: Selling More & Better Without the Challenges of Owning a Freight Brokerage
Like many talented freight brokers, Tracy Putnam was frustrated by the many difficulties that come with moving freight. However, she was uneasy about giving up some control over her business accounting functions to a brokerage services company, or stepping away from her business altogether.
After talking with Freight Tec, her frustrations and worries quickly changed to confidence and peace of mind. Read this story about a real Independent Freight Agent who really joined Freight Tec.
“My business changed dramatically when I came to Freight Tec, because I was able to do what I do best, and that’s sales,” said Tracy, who is based in Tennessee. Freight Tec had recognized the quality and depth of her customer base and knew she was the type of freight agent who would thrive even more if given the type of support she deserved.
“Freight Tec provides unparalleled back-office support, which made me a better freight broker,” Tracy said. “I am no longer bogged down with tasks such as claims, writing checks, setting up carriers, collecting bills and handling insurance issues — all the stuff I didn’t want to do.”
Prior to joining Freight Tec, Tracy had spent a couple of difficult years grappling with the pros and cons of owning her own brokerage company. She learned she could make more money, and do the fun parts of the business she loved, if she were a part of Freight Tec.
One of the most unique benefits of working with Freight Tec is that agents do not have to sign a non-compete. Tracy and her colleagues also enjoy one of the most lucrative pay structures in the industry — up to 70 percent gross profit commission split —and are protected by $100,000 broker and military bonds and errors and omissions insurance.
Now that she is free from the burdens of administrative work — and can utilize free access to tech platforms including Internet Truckstop, DAT/TransCore, Web based load management and dispatch TMS, and fast Carrier setup (new carriers can get setup in about 6 minutes). Tracy focuses on moving freight, building customer relationships, and making profit instead of on the many challenges of owning a brokerage.
“Don’t wait as long as I did,” Tracy said.
