How did you get started doing this type of work?
Years ago my brother was a truck driver and I seen what this industry was doing to truck drivers in general. That the large corporations are trying to squeeze out the smaller firms. Note: If they do this (which they're trying) what happens is... they minipulate the industry and then can dictate the rate per mile they will charge, which will trinkle down to you and me as consumers. I do not want to pay $10 for a gallon of milk. So I proceeded to learn this industry and started sharing my knowledge with others.
What types of customers have you worked with?
In this industry the players are: Shipper, Receiver, Broker, Broker Agents, Sales Rep., and Carriers.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have so many great trainings and students that have went on to do great things. But, I'm straight forward... you get out of this - by what you put into it. This is not for everyone... but for those who go for it... it is very profitable. How much you make all depends on who and how many shippers you have and what you sell the loads for.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check references. Talk to the trainer - not some person who answer the phone and sets appointments.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That this business is not hard to learn - even though their are many who want individuals to think so. That way they stay out.
