Author does not understand Freight brokering.

From miscommunicated terms to outright bad information the list goes on! I do not recommend this book to anyone looking to learn about Freight brokering. terms such as truck brokering which is now illegal under Map 21 are used throughout the reading of the book. incorrect explanation of processes were abundant!
at one point talking about Freight brokering, in the next describing a motor carrier operations without really discerning between the two.

Recipient is enjoying

if you have zero interest in trucking. You will gain a new perspective of the industry. I knew little about the industry and this download taught me a lot about it in an interesting manner.
