Broker/Agent Plan Details

Top Commission Pay

With OFS you will receive outstanding commission pay which is on the upper end of the scale in the freight industry. We are very upfront about how you get paid, no hidden file fees or other charges that can nickel and dime you and reduce your pay significantly. Commissions are paid weekly and with our exclusive TMSPro Dashboard you are able to view and track your pay at any time. Please talk to one of our recruiters for more information about our program and about the special perks we offer for large volume agents.

Agent Friendly Contract

Some companies have contracts that benefit them not the agents; some even have clauses that restrict you from working with your own customers if you leave. OFS is not that type of company! We will never lock you into a contract that contains a non-compete or exclusivity agreement. We believe your happiness with our pay, services, and staff will build a strong loyalty between us. Our philosophy is simple, treat our agents well and everyone will be successful.

Smooth Customer Transitions

We have setup many customers for agents who have joined OFS and are experts at making the transition process go smoothly. We have structured procedures and staff dedicated to work with you and your customers to take care of credit, insurance certificates, paperwork and contracts (if required), as well as EDI. Typically customers can be setup in minutes and we will help you and your customer feel at ease and happy about the move to OFS.
