WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Future Freight Broker
When I decided to take your course, I was unsure on what I wanted to do in transportation. But, you took the time to talk to me and helped me establish a plan. I and so grateful for your guidance !
I never saw myself out of the truck until I took your course. I always figured the Freight Broker side of transportation was too difficult. But, your class made it so easy for me to understand. I have been in my truck for 12 years and I am excited about my transition.
Thank You P1
I started as a Freight Broker 2 years ago and felt like I was missing something. After finishing your course yesterday I realized I just needed a refresher. I was able to add 3 shippers to my book of business with the tools you provided.
I knew I wanted to start a transportation business but, I was unsure where to start. So when I called P1, I had a lot of questions. You guys didn't rush me off the phone but, helped me establish a plan to start my business. I am so grateful and I can't wait to start your class next week.
Future Truck Dispatcher & Frieght Broker coming soon!
I am not sure where to begin but, I was worried when I took your course. I felt it maybe too basic for me especially when I have been in the industry since 2012. However, I learned so much. I am now adding a freight Brokerage to my company and two more trucks.
