Become An Agent
A freight broker agent is an individual that works with LHP Transportation to find loads to move and trucks to move them quickly, reliably, and efficiently. Getting into freight brokerage is a difficult process involving credit, insurance, and reputation in the industry. LHP Transportation can help you cover all those bases and break into the industry by entering into a contract with you such that LHP Transportation provides everything you need to find loads and fill trucks with no hassle.
WHY BECOME A FREIGHT BROKER AGENT?
Our freight broker agents have access to a state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure that provides a variety of tools for tracking loads, mileage, revenue, and even communications. The freight broker agent is responsible for negotiating prices with carriers and operators. Agents interact directly with customers, but they are not responsible for high-end maintenance and bookkeeping tasks, such as:
- Accounts Receivables
- Carrier Payables
- Claims Administration
- Back Office Reporting and Accounting
- Up-To-Date Technology and Communication
- Maintaining Bonds
- Licensing and Insurance
With our customized freight transportation management tools, we enable our agents all over the U.S. and Canada to search for loads, instantly price LTL transportation below competitors, access EDI, calculate practical mileage, trace loads, and so much more!
The ability to provide what is promised, dependably and accurately, is the most important qualification to LHP Transportation. Our customers need to know that they can depend on us to keep our word.
You must be willing to help customers promptly and let them know that they are our priority.
You must be able to use your freight broker knowledge to convey trust, competence, and confidence to the customer at all times.
You must show customers a high degree of caring and individualized attention so that they enjoy a warm feeling when working with us and know that we are an organization that goes above and beyond to meet their freight transportation and logistics needs. We consider this a priceless quality in our freight broker agents!
You must maintain an excellent physical appearance in your facilities and equipment; we expect to use clean, modern vehicles, employ clean, neat associates, and distribute eye-catching, attractive promotional materials. At LHP Transportation, we like our customers to know that they are working side by side with professionals that take pride in what they do.
