    Are there load boards for freight brokers, where they find loads/shippers ?

    Yes, brokers simply take loads over there from shippers, post them on load boards for truckers and just keep the difference.
    I can sell you the load boards names and broker bootcamp training only for $2000

    So as a beginner broker/new bussiness one could get a start on bidding for loads on a broker board?

    I'm interested in a online broker course, however a interested/invested party want to to take the course as well, are there company rates or just single/insividule rates?

    A friendly piece of advice, get to know the business first.

    Here’s a few random quiz questions that any broker should know:
    -Why do Christmas tree loads pay more than a regular load?
    -What’s the reason no one wants to take a load to Lubbock?
    -You have a truck doing a load from Riverside, CA to Reno, NV. You call the truck to let him know that a second stop has been added that picks in Long Beach. Why does the trucker get pissed off and cancel the load?
    -You get a great rate on a 46,000 lb load of potatoes.... how come no one wants it?
    -It’s July and you score a Dreyers load out of Bakersfield with a mid-afternoon appointment.... what could possibly go wrong?

    These and other things will not be taught to you on an online broker course. If you want to broker freight I suggest signing on with a brokerage house first so you can learn the business.

    1) Cause it's Christmas and everyone is in a giving spirit.
    2) I go to Lubbock. What's the problem?
    3) We love going to LB. Especially in the afternoon.
    4) 46K just take a few back roads. Old iron for the win!!!!
    5) We love Cookies and Cream Dreyers. Take that one cheap cause it's our favorite.

    If you disagree, how about explaining instead of laughing? That would be much more useful.

    The first guy was being sarcastic, and the second guy was laughing at the joke. Trust me, they're both in agreement.
