Become a Freight Broker

To become a freight broker, it helps to have a background in the trucking industry. This is good news for freight drivers who are tired of being away from their families for long periods of time or are just ready to move their careers to the next level. Truckers also have the contacts necessary for successful broker careers. At Sureway Transportation Company, we appreciate brokers who know the other side of the business.

First, to become a freight broker, you'll need to apply for authority from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). You'll also have to post a $10,000 surety bond, as well as file the proper process agent form, called a BOC-3. Once you receive your license, you can start building up your contacts in the trucking industry to ensure your success as a broker.

Become a High-Volume Freight Broker.

There are thousands of licensed freight brokers in the industry today. The sad truth is that only half of them are working at any given time. When you make the decision to become a freight broker, you want to know you're going to have the support you need to keep your business rolling. That's why it's important to link yourself with a solid brokerage firm.
