WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I THANK YOU BOTH for a most informative and richly rewarding experience.
My experience with the freight broker training class was great and life changing. I didn't realize how much was being left out on the table in the transportation business. Now that I've gained the knowledge of freight brokering, I now know how to be an effective carrier and broker. Thank you so much Rod and Katriena for empowering me with the great knowledge.
I just wanted to say thanks again! I’ve secured 7 new shippers since I left class and have already began moving their loads. Keep doing what you’re doing because people like me really appreciate it! Take care!--
