  1. I’m glad that you talked about you would bridge manufacturers with transportation companies as a freight broker. A couple of days ago, my cousin told me that he wanted to pursue his career being a freight broker because it was his dream since then, and he asked me if I had any idea what would be the best option to start learning about freight broking. Thanks to this informative article, I’ll be sure to tell him that it will be much better if he consults a well-known freight broker training as they can guide him throughout the process.

  2. Does the freight broker master certification include an internship like the other course, and do u have to pay 4500 upfront or is it like the other program that only asks for 500 upfront

    1. Hello and great question, yes the internship is apart of the course, it does have to be paid upfront, you may also apply for financial aid.
