Hey yall thanks for your time reading this post, Im a small business owner out of S.Florida which my father started, Beside having the trucking company we also have another business. I took over my father company and everything is sailing great. Im running 3 step decks and i just purchased another 51 ft reitnouer. I got a few customer i work directly which is great, therefore i don't have enough trucks to book all the loads they want to give me. I also have a customer that i deal with in Laredo, Tx that are direct that also want to give me more than i could handle right now. As we know how the economy is, i don't want to get into debt. I been around doing this since 04 just being a dispatcher and setting up rates and keeping the customer happy. My costumer wants me to get all their loads and finding truck for them when i don't have any of mines available. I told them politely i cant at this time because i don't have the authority to post up loads on load board without a broker license. What would i need in this situation? Do i need a Broker license with different authority with bond. If so how do i get a bond and license. Having experience in this field is worth going to a broker school.
i will appreciate your experience and knowledge and i need suggestion.
sorry for my first post being too broad.
