    Can anybody give me some leads on getting shippers to work with? Work for the best brokerage company
    around?

    those are tight keep secrets. you got to put in the cold calling hours first. everyone else has put in there time. you should too. find shippers in your area and go to calling.

    Are you a trucking company or are you a broker?

    Develop a pitch, and start cold calling. Spend some time lead generating by doing research and identifying who the decision makers are at your target. Spend hours and hours trying to get past gate keepers, and if you are lucky you will finally get a few minutes to make your pitch to the decision maker. Don't blow it at that point or you are getting added to a blocked caller list or junk email folder.

    Is this person question, the equivalent to asking for the “secret ingredient/ recipe” for an old family dish?

    Does anyone you know, or someone they know, work at a business that ships freight on trucks? What about receives freight on trucks?

    Now, kindly send me 1% of your gross revenue for the life of your business. Your welcome.

    I get my shippers at Walmart. They are on aisle 8 between the diapers and the frozen dinners. Usually the wife just picks up a few for me while shopping. I'm too busy running the roads to drop by and get my own, and Walmart doesn't like me parking my truck out front.
