Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about this opening.
A bit about us:
We are a third party logistics freight broker in the transportation industry. We do not own any of our own trucks. We are a broker that connects shippers to trucking companies using our online platform as a means to move the shipment.
What we are looking for:
This job has 2 separate but connected duties.
1) We are looking for someone who can, research and create their own database of shippers, generate leads and cold call qualified companies that have shipping needs, to sign up to our free, worry-free platform. Qualifications needs can be discussed with the chosen candidate. This will include the shippers having to fill out some forms and submitted to us for a background check prior to signing them up.
To aid you in this we have produced a 2 minute video-ad that can be linked in any emails you send, depending on your process, which may help explain the service to shippers.
2) The candidate also needs to be able to expand and grow our carrier database, as growing our customer base will mean nothing if we don’t have the means to service them.
This will entail calling various, small to medium sized carriers across Canada and the US, explaining the benefits of our system and having them sign on in order to help service our customers.
We will provide you with an email address with our domain, which must be used, for any email correspondence with shippers.
The shipping companies and trucking companies that are being called on must be located in Canada or the United States, and must be called during THEIR business owners, depending on if their timezone is Eastern/Central/Pacific.
Callers MUST be fluent in English with no detectable accent. Must have your own tracking system and be able to provide weekly reports.
Depending on the success of the candidate this has the potential to become an ongoing/permanent position. As the business grows, our needs will expand so plenty of potential for full time work and raises/bonuses.
After a period of 2-4 weeks we will do an evaluation on the work/results so far.
Sample voice recording of all applicants is preferred, however, if you're located outside of USA/Canada, you MUST provide a sample voice recording to determine English Fluency.
Feel free to reply with any questions you may have.
PLS NOTE: Freelancer MUST have experience in the US/Canada trucking industry and MUST have had at least SOME experience with Load Boards, we will provide access to any load boards you require. Please do not apply if you don't.
