    Freight Broker Training

    in Business

    With the rising cost of fuel prices and over-regulation, many truck driving veterans are calling it quits and leaving their trucks behind. Other issues such as medical problems or simply reaching retirement age will cause thousands more to depart from their driving careers.
    These are just a few reasons why drivers will leave the vocation but for many, will look for a way to remain active within the transportation business.
    What has proven to be an entrepreneurial opportunity for those willing to work, is that of a freight broker or logistics agent. Reports show that the average annual income for full-time freight brokers is currently estimated to be between $40,000 and $150,000.
    Joining us will be Jack Martin, Agent Recruiter for GRD Freight Express and recognized as one of the leading logistics consultant.
    Also we will talk with Joel Glenny, Agent Trainer and Coordinator for GRD Logistics Training based out of Baker, Florida which consists of a team of personnel who have a combined trucking industry experience of over 60 years.
    We will discuss the real facts of building your own successful freight broker business  or becoming a broker agent and how GRD Logistics Training can help you succeed. - GRD SPECIAL OFFER AT END OF SHOW.

    in Business

    Join the show at 7pm ET!
    Call (646) 668-2277



    We will all be faced with the decision to sign a contract at some point in our business. When working with a new broker it can be tempting to rush to the signature line and secure that freight before it's gone. What might you be missing? What can signing a bad contract do to your business? How can you avoid the traps of "legaleeze" layed out for you? What can you do to avoid these problems? We will discuss the red flags and share what to look out for when you have one of these documents in front of you. We will talk about ways you can edit these contracts to be more favorable for both parties and not just a blanket of protection for the brokers.

    Open Trucking Forum- Addressing FMCSA shortcomings

    in Current Events

    Saturday 4-11-15 6PM ET : A hot topic for many within the trucking industry- the FMCSA. 


    To say the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has been under criticism and dissecting scrutiny is an understatement. Whether you are a company driver, owner operator, carrier, broker, organization, trade group, or Government Accountability Office, chances are you have found yourself fuming one time or another about an action FMCSA has either taken or proposed to take.


    We open up with Tom Byerley of UrTruckBroker.com. Tom is a 44 year trucking veteran with over 4 million safe miles.  Owner Operator turned freight broker, Tom shares his concerns with us tonight regarding the FMCSA’s CSA program scores and the affects they are making on the industry.


    From there we will lead into other areas which are seriously affecting the trucking industry, including how those acting as “brokers” are avoiding the $75,000 bond designed to protect carriers from broker fraud. 


    Join us and share your views, insights and opinions.  Let’s talk about it. Call in number: 347-826-9170.

    in Books

    Jim Prince, a native of Central Michigan with over 20 years of fire and rescue service experience spent about 6 months in New Orleans first as a Volunteer Firefighter then as a Logistics Generalist for FEMA.


    Jim will recount his experiences in the shattered region and provide fascinating insight into events and occurrences.


    Jim had some amazing experiences with FEMA in various ways which he will share.  On this show we will focus on aspects of the infrastructure, how the federal/state/local resources may have been better deployed…and provide significant insight into the balance of the three key governmental entities.


    Cary and Gretchen will be hosting…we encourage folks to call in and share their feelings…See ya there!


    If you don’t like FEMA…call in…ask some questions or share your anger…Call in and lets crawl into the controversy…necessary or not…open discussion is a catharsis…let’s get ‘er done!


    Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’.  The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States.  It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos.  The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.


    The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten

    Let's secure direct customers! Some of the biggest complaints in the trucking industry are about brokers.
