Purpose of this training is to make teaching and learning easier. The school’s curriculum is 40 years of brokering, trucking & dispatching experience in the field, and in the classroom. Changes in the transportation brokering industry have been confusing and numerous. The latest law change is commonly referred to as MAP-21, effective Oct. 1, 2013, which essentially eliminates the brokering conduct referred to as “Truck Brokering” (one authorized carrier hiring another authorized carrier). The only brokering now permitted by Law is “Licensed Property Brokering”, as defined, as of this writing, as 49 CFR 371.2. This brokering definition is what this Manual all about. This Manual is used in classes offered by America’s oldest transportation brokering institution, LoadTraining, and follows a Flow Chart format to aid in the act of learning to broker. Since 1987, LoadTraining has graduated thousands of students into the business to business segment of brokering, commonly referred to as “3PL” logistics, with the title and degree of Master Broker® Certification. No other institution offers to train new brokers to avoid the startup trial and error pitfalls common in the industry. In 1983, The Backhauler Directory was trademarked and published for the benefit of brokers and others selling transportation. The dissemination of learning materials soon followed, culminating in The New Transportation Brokerage Operations Manual© 2013. The Manual is complemented with a0 PowerPoint© and Flowchart Mouse Pad© learning process available only in a HANDS ON learning class, offered throughout the United States and Canada. In total, the reader of this Manual, followed by a HANDS ON class, will have invested a total of 84 hours of academic and empirical brokering experience, and will graduate with a Master Broker® Certification. This individual will have attained a skill level that exceeds industry standards and will have no trouble qualifying with the FMCSA as a “trained” broker applicant, as defined by MAP- 21.
