Become a Freight Broker
Freight brokers are the middlemen between motor carriers and shippers. Just like motor carriers and independent owner operators, they need to make sure they’re compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in order to help other businesses.
At Motor Carrier HQ, we take care of the paperwork for you. Our broker authority package includes:
- FMCSA filing fee ($300)
- USDOT Number
- MC Number
- BOC-3 Processing Agent (We’ll file it for free as part of our package)
If you have any other questions about what you need to become a freight broker, give us a call. Our coaches are experts at helping others start their own businesses. We can help you with the next steps of finding the necessary surety bond.
Why Become a Broker?
Freight brokers are an important part of the trucking industry. Whether they help independent owner operators find loads or focus solely on helping shippers find the right business, they can help connect the right people, for a commission fee.
If you want to enter the trucking industry in a way that makes an impact, consider becoming a broker with the right authority! Motor Carrier HQ can help you every step of the way to set your business up for success.
We save you time and money by doing the paperwork for you, so you can focus on running your business.
Broker Authority vs. Operating Authority
Getting your authority to become a freight broker is different from motor carrier operating authority needed to start your own trucking company.
We’ve seen far too many people try to get their operating authority, but choose the wrong one. Getting the wrong authority means paying the filing fee again, wasting time and money.
The FMCSA does not refund applicants if they apply for the wrong authority.
