Tips for Brokers to Find Quality Carriers

1. Get Connected

Users can report unauthorized re-brokering of shipments, no-shows, cancellations, theft, unjustified loss of freight, and other issues.

2. Get what you pay for.

Why? Because the more experienced and credentialed the doctor, the higher fee he or she can demand. While truck driving isn’t brain surgery, the same idea holds true: experienced drivers charge more. Generally speaking, low-paying loads attract low-quality drivers, and high-paying loads attract high-quality drivers.

You can also read reviews to see what other brokers have to say about prospective carriers.

3. Get quality drivers by being a quality broker.

One of the best ways to attract quality carriers is to be a reliable, responsible broker. Truckers talk — and you want to be sure that they’re saying good things about your business.

It’s also important to understand the rules and regulations of the trucking industry, including Hours of Service (HOS) regulations. These rules establish maximum hourly driving limits, required rest breaks, and sleep requirements for drivers.

Finally, show that you’re a reliable broker by never double-brokering carriers. Be transparent in all of your dealings. You’ll avoid legal battles, and show carriers and shippers that you’re a trustworthy partner.
