    I'm excited to begin my journey as an auto/freight transport broker and have been trying to figure out how to get running. What are some ways to acquire new clients ?

    This is funny post. That's the job of a broker calling and finding customers. Then you have find trucks to haul the loads. Remember everyone says it's easy job.

    Did you really expect that other brokers would welcome you as a competitor and share inside information with you?

    I'll pass. I try to avoid brokers whenever possible. They whine almost as much as truckers do.
    One thing about people like the OP...by the time they start to figure things out they've usually run through all their money and have to take a job with a real broker.
     
    PPDCT, Midwest Trucker and D.Tibbitt Thank this.

    I am very new to it. Just working out the idea of becoming a broker. I wasn’t aware of how competitive it is but it doesn’t worry me. Thanks for your input.
     
    Midwest Trucker Thanks this.
