So what is a freight broker?

Freight brokers help shippers that need to move freight from point A to point B by finding a carrier (trucking company) that will haul the freight for slightly less than the shipper is willing to pay them… thus the term BROKER!

In other words freight brokers, sometimes referred to as load brokers, truck brokers, or transportation brokers, are all middle men that match available shipper freight with available trucks while earning between 10% and 35% profit per shipment.

That means brokers typically earn between $100 to $500 per shipments but I have earned as much as$5,175 per shipment just for finding a truck to haul our customer’s freight!  Find out more information here !

Amazon Releases Diversity Numbers For The First Time And Surprise, It’s Mostly Male And White

Amazon.com AMZN +2.12% released workplace diversity figures for the first time on Friday and they did little to set the Seattle online retailer apart from its tech industry peers.

Amazon, which employs more than 88,400 around the world according to its careers website, noted that its workforce was, unsurprisingly, composed of most white males. Some 63% of its “Amazonians” were male, while white employees made up 60% of the workplace. Those percentages were even higher for employees in managerial positions, of which 75% were male and 71% were white.

“Amazon has hundreds of millions of customers who can benefit from diversity of thought,” read Amazon’s report. “We are a company of builders who bring varying backgrounds, ideas, and points of view to inventing on behalf of our customers.”

While the company sells products in diverse regions from India to Germany, Amazon was one of the few remaining large American technology companies not to share employee diversity numbers following voluntary disclosures from the likes of Facebook, Twitter TWTR -0.79%and Google GOOGL +1.33%. Last month, the company was pressured by Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition and publications like USA Today to release race and gender breakdowns of its workforce. Jackson also reportedly had discussions with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.  Read More

Google tests ultra high-speed wireless Internet technology

screen-shot-2012-07-10-at-17-13-26

Google is seeking FCC permission to test new technology which could marry the speed of Google Fiber to wireless services.

In an application to the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Monday, the tech giant requested permission to conduct tests in California across wireless spectrums. Of particular interest, asnoted by Reuters, is a rarely used millimeter-wave frequency that is capable of transmitting vast amounts of information across the air.

According to the publication, the tests could signal the creation of the base technology for use in high-speed, wireless connectivity — part of Google’s plan to extend its reach in the Internet service provider industry. If so, this would obliviate the need for underground cables or fiber. A fast broadband service beamed into our homes could act as an extension to Google’s slowly expanding Fiber service, which offers up to one gigabit in upload and download speed — but laying the groundwork is a slow process.

The application, signed off by Google Access and Energy division chief Craig Barratt, documents a 180-day test which the company says will provide “valuable insight into Google’s technology innovations and potential business plans and strategy.

” Although much of the application is redacted in order to protect confidential data, the tech giant states that the purpose of the test is to “expeditiously test radios in a way that is likely to contribute to the development, extension, expansion or utilization of the radio art.”
