Guidelines for choosing a broker

Max Kvidera | December 16, 2009

• Check their credit using a neutral credit rating service like TransCredit.

• Check if the broker is a member of TIA and get his or her dated membership certificate or call TIA at (703) 299-5700.

• Ensure that the broker that hires you is the one that was hired by the shipper.

• Get everything in writing.

• Document everything.
