TMP Placement FAQs
Am I able to make money in the TMPP?
Absolutely. You will be a freight broker agent working through TALTOA under the license of one of our freight broker clients. As an agent in the TMPP you will earn a 50% commission on the load net of any load successfully moved.
What is the purpose of the TMPP?
The TMPP allows you to gain real world experience working as a freight broker with your assigned consultant overseeing and mentoring you every step of the way. The TMPP allows you to begin building your customer base and getting that hands-on experience so at the conclusion of the TMPP you can take your next step.
Can I extend my TMPP?
You’ll find that you won’t need an extension. After successfully completing the TMPP you’ll be ready to contract directly with a freight brokerage as a freight broker agent. In addition, after completing the TMPP your consulting period will begin. The consulting provides you with all the same benefits of the TMPP including your assigned consultant to answer your questions, make recommendation, provide support.
Can I start my own freight brokerage after completing the TMPP?
That’s a question that only you’ll be able to answer when the time comes. We always recommend starting as a freight broker agent so that you’re able to build your customer base and gain experience. We’ve had clients that started as an agent with the goal of opening their own freight brokerage in the future. When they were able to do so, they chose to remain an agent as they were making good money and didn’t have all of the responsibility of the freight broker (liability, billing, additional overhead, administrative…).
How will I be able to find a freight broker to work with after the TMPP?
Not a problem. We have plenty of resources that you can use to find a freight broker including training on how to obtain a freight broker agent contract. This on-demand training will walk you through the process that includes finding a broker in which to apply, contacting, resume, interview, and contracting.
What is PAYGO Financing?
PAYGO financing allows you to make a down payment and begin the training portion of your package. The down payment includes the freight broker manual, workbook (used in training), shipping, and part 1 of your 6-part training. After completing part 1, you will be required to make a minimum payment of $100 to schedule your next session. The balance of your package must be paid prior to entering the TMPP.
What hours will I be required to work in the TMPP?
That is up to you. As a freight broker agent, in the TMPP or with a freight brokerage, you are an independent contractor. This means you set your own hours. Keep in mind that the emphasis of the TMMP is you building your customer base.
