PAST WORKSHOP RECORDINGS

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BROKERS

“What You Need to Know About Brokers” presented by a panel of 4 leading experts. Transportation attorney Brent Wm. Primus  will ask  our panelists “the tough questions” on using a broker and how to select one that is best suited for you.
 
The inspiration for this session was the Shipper’s Panel at the 2019 Transportation Intermediaries Association  (TIA)  Annual Meeting.  This was comprised of four shippers who gave their thoughts about using brokers and also answered questions from brokers in the audience.  The goal of the session is to facilitate mutual understanding by shippers of brokers…and by brokers of shippers…in the common goal of getting shippers’ products safely to market.  
  
What you will learn:

Advantages and disadvantages of using a broker rather then directly contracting with a motor carrier.
Developing guidelines for your company for selecting a broker
