Pinnacle Freight Systems is an asset based transportation provider offering full truckload and less than truckload service throughout the United States and Canada.

Through a network of company trucks, agencies, and contracted carriers, we provide solutions for shippers needing truckload capacity, temperature control, hazmat, and expedited transport.

Consider joining Pinnacle Freight Systems as an independent agent. 

We offer flexible agent compensation programs and pay a SIGN-ON bonus for joining.  Our flexible commission program is based on gross profit and gives you the opportunity to earn as high as 80%.

 

Not all AGENT programs are created equal.  Here are some things that make us different:

 

  • We are both asset and brokerage giving you the opportunity to open more doors with potential customers.  This gives you many options for finding your customers the capacity they need.
  • We have a support person with sales background assigned to only the agent network to help you grow your business and our operational software is easy to use.
  • When you broker freight, you can give your customers the security they are looking for when the unfortunate claim situation occurs.  Pinnacle Freight Systems cargo coverage is primary on every load.  Your customer will only deal with us.
  • We are not one of the giant brokerage houses with thousands of agents in every area.  You will not be locked out of potential customers because it is coded to someone else.

It never hurts to have a conversation.  I look forward to speaking to you.  Please contact me at your convenience at 732-667-5261  Ext 120 or via email at ladams@pinnacletruck.com.
