Getting Started as a Freight Entrepreneur: How TGF Supports You

With the tap of your finger or the click of a mouse, you can order virtually anything you need online – clothes, groceries, toiletries, you name it. Freight professionals have never been more necessary — and more valuable than ever before! 

As any freight professional will agree, the freight world isn’t for everyone. It requires hard work, hustle and thick skin. But for those with the right skills and qualities, a career as a freight entrepreneur can be both fulfilling and lucrative (think: untapped earning potential). As you build your freight business, you’ll want to align yourself with a freight agent program that knows what it takes to succeed and has the tools needed to help you thrive. 

At Tallgrass Freight, we understand that building a business requires more than a one-week onboarding program and empty promises. It demands support, professional development, and resources designed to propel you forward. Here’s a look at how Tallgrass can support you as you begin a career as a freight entrepreneur


Mentorship & Development to Reach New Heights

We’re not fans of staying stagnant. It’s like when traffic comes to a complete standstill on the highway and you’re sitting in a glorified parking lot. That’s a nightmare and something we avoid at all costs – both on the road and in your career. 

Personal and professional growth is deeply ingrained in our culture. From events like our Agent Roundtable to quarterly forums and ongoing access to leadership, we want to help you devise a blueprint for success. Whether you want to brainstorm ways to grow your agency, you’re facing a new challenge, or there’s a customer situation you could use guidance on, you have some of the brightest minds in the business behind you – and always a phone call away. 


Technology Designed to Move Your Days Forward

The freight industry is fast-paced, and if you don’t have the right technology to facilitate all your day-to-day needs, you’ll simply fall behind. That’s why we decided to build our own homegrown CRM – made by freight experts, for freight experts. Time is money, so ensuring you can work as efficiently and headache-free as possible is a pivotal piece of helping our agents achieve success. 


An Environment Rooted in Support

You may be a business owner, but that doesn’t mean collaboration and support go out the door. When you’re your own boss, juggling all facets of your business can be incredibly overwhelming, and nearly impossible without the right support. 

Our freight agents have access to a world-class back office team to handle everything from administrative needs and carrier relations to collections and tech support. They provide the infrastructure needed to ensure a small tech or billing issue doesn’t snowball into a larger predicament that consumes your entire day. This way, you can focus your time on high-level activities, like nurturing customer relationships and revenue growth.

As a solo entrepreneur, we want to ensure work-life balance isn’t just a pipe dream. Providing unparalleled support is a crucial piece of helping you achieve upward mobility for your business while still having the flexibility to create your desired personal life.
