"Some say it's simple to get your authority, and that you should save your money and do it yourself. Other people, including myself, are not sure where to even begin. I used a service provided by DAT to get my authority. It was important to me that it was done right the first time, by people who have done this before."

A broker is a neutral partner in shipping operations who connects shippers to carriers to get freight on the road. Transportation brokers can use a variety of approaches to connect truckers to freight, including load boards and personal connections to shippers with unlisted loads. Finding the right load matches is a crucial service that keeps the transportation industry moving.
