How to get a ‘freight’ license for your business
If you’re a freight broker or freight broker agent, you might want to get your Freight Freight (FGF) license.
This is a business license that allows you to operate a freight brokerage or freight brokerage business without being a licensed business broker or agent.
You can apply to the state of Massachusetts and you’ll need to provide your employer’s full name and the name of your business.
You also have to provide documents like your business’s name, address and phone number, as well as your annual financial statements.
If you have a lot of clients, you’ll also need to complete a form that lists all the customers who have been referred to you.
If the form says that the business is a “freight brokerage” or “freighter broker”, you’ll have to also say that the company operates from a place where “freighters are regularly used”.
If you’ve been licensed to do business in the US since 2005, you can apply for a license to operate in Massachusetts.
Your license will be valid for at least three years and will be renewed every three years.
But, it’s not guaranteed to be renewed.
You’ll need your business license to do anything else like: accept clients from out of state or out of the country.
