There are many factors that go into building a successful freight business. You have to have the right tools. You have to make the right connections. And you have to put in the work to get your business off the ground. But there are also a number of traits that lead to greater success.
Getting your licensing and credentials is only the first step to building a successful freight business. Once the classes are over and it is now up to you to make it or break it as a freight agent, how do you kick start your business into a lasting career?
First you have to set a goal for success. What is your purpose? Do you want to build a freight logistics franchise? Are you just looking for a good paying job? Do you want to make more than the average bear? If so, write down your long-term plan for your business.
Next, start mapping out the steps to accomplishing your goal by setting milestones. If you want to be a trendsetter, what steps should you take to learn from the success leaders in the industry? How many clients will you need to take on in order to make enough money to invest in your own fleet and staff?
You’ve got your license, you’ve got your wheels, and now how do you get the truck to move? You give your plan fuel. That’s where your mindset comes in. Your mindset will either make or break you as a freight agent.
Learn the traits of a successful agent and lose the ones of an unsuccessful agent. Put it all together and you are on the road to accomplishing your goals.
