Is It a Good time to be a Freight Broker?

The Occupational Outlook for a freight broker or freight broker agent is very good for the next 4 years.  A decent salary with great growth potential.  According to a survey this is what I found:

How much should a freight broker expect to earn?

In 2016, the median wage of cargo and freight agents was $45,150 per year, with the upper 10% earning more than $68,000.

What is the Employment Outlook for a freight broker agent?

Employment of cargo and freight agents is projected to grow 26 percent from 2016 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the economy grows, the volume of cargo traffic will also increase. More cargo and freight agents will be needed to coordinate and manage these additional shipments (including the growing online shopping industry), which increasingly involve multiple modes of transportation.
 What skills do employers require for a freight broker or freight broker agent?
Job prospects should be best for those with strong computer and customer-service skills. Some employers report difficulty finding workers who have these abilities.

Now that you see freight brokering as a great career come get trained by the best.

We can get you up and running much faster than if you try to become a freight broker on your own.

Moving forward,
