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.
