How to fill in a set up package
Hi guys. In this video, we will teach you how to properly fill out the setup package for a broker. Setup package is a contract between you and the company that provides you with the goods. The more you set up with the different companies, the better the rating of your company increases and accordingly, more companies are ready to use your services and provide you with goods. If your company has already been registered for a year, then you will have no problems with the cargo.
Most brokers are willing to work with companies that have work experience of three months, six months, one year. But there are those who without any problems will give you a lot even if you work only a few days. For example, TQL can give you a lot if you have been working for a half year. And to work with Schneider, you need one year of experience.
That is, it all depends on the company from which you take the goods. After checking your MC number, the broker will tell you if he is ready to give you the cargo. And if not, he will definitely indicate how much time was passed before you can cooperate with them.
Setup package can be filled by any employee of your company. To do this, you need the following documents. W-9, insurance as well as MC number, DOT number, fax, company address and the name and the surname of the company’s president. Often side by the name of the president of the company.
