Trinity Logistics takes pride in being a leading name among independent freight agents. We have many benefits to offer through our freight agent program, but the one we’d like to talk about today is education. With Continuous Improvement being one of the eight Guiding Values at Trinity, continued education is important to the company, so we ensure all Trinity Team Members receive educational opportunities, and this includes our Freight Agent network.
There are many reasons why continued education is vital to your success. When you look at the most successful people in the world, they know and understand that we never stop learning. Additionally, the logistics industry constantly changes; it is never stagnant. New regulations take place or newer technology makes waves. Continued education is needed for you to stay current with the latest developments, skills, technologies, and more. Continuing your education is the best way for you to stay ahead of your competition. Many other careers need continued education and freight agents are no different.
Trinity has an in-house Education Team that provides you with many opportunities to continue your education and training on business strategy, industries, modes, sales, and other skill sets you may need. There are virtual classes held every month, giving you opportunities to increase your sales skills and introduce you to any new Trinity technology. Most importantly, we offer our Freight Agents the same opportunities as our Team Members. In addition, there are many virtual courses offered outside of our monthly classes through our learning management platform. These courses can be taken in your own time and cover an array of topics such as leadership, cybersecurity, and customer service.
Through Trinity’s freight agent program, we provide you with the technology resources you need to be successful while offering you support every step of the way. When it comes to technology, we make sure to maintain a competitive edge in the market, giving you, your customers, and carriers access to best-in-class applications. We also have an entire team of in-house software engineers who work hard to make our processes easy and data accessible.
We never want to leave you feeling lost or confused, which is why our freight agent program provides you with thorough training on current and upcoming technology. Through communication from our Agent Support Team, you’ll consistently be updated on any changes, big or small. Should you need any extra help with learning any technology, you’ll have your Agent Support Team available for any training and support.
Trinity’s freight agent program keeps you up to date on what’s going on in the freight market and other related industries. As a Freight Agent with Trinity, you’ll receive an email every day with Daily Industry news you might want to know. In addition, each month, through Trinity’s Freightwaves’ Sonar account and other resources, we curate a Freight Market Update in blog and video form. You’ll also receive a monthly Agent Support newsletter giving you insight into any Trinity news.
Trinity has a Team dedicated to the support of our Freight Agents. Support Team Members will work with you to learn about your goals, offer suggestions, encourage you, and help you stay on track. Think you might need a little more help? We encourage spending one-on-one time through direct planning support and accountability reviews with our Agent Support leadership team members at Trinity. They have experience working with office structures of all sizes and can help dissect your business to get you closer to your goal numbers. They’ll be available to help recommend any educational opportunities and assist you with any of Trinity’s technology. You’ll never fall behind or feel unsure with the help of your own Support Team!
As a Freight Agent with Trinity, you’ll also be able to attend our annual Agent Conference. This year’s conference will be an all-day event held virtually on November 18th, 2021. You and your office are invited to hear from many speakers throughout the day, including members of our own Trinity leadership, sales directors, our Platinum Agents, and other industry professionals. In years past, we’ve had external speakers such as transportation economist Noel Perry and Transportation Intermediary Association’s Vice President of Government Affairs, Chris Burroughs.
This conference also includes workshops on the sales process and operations process for you to take part in and hone your skills and understanding. You’ll find technology and business resources available and even have chances to win some prizes!
We can boast all day about the educational opportunities and benefits that Trinity’s freight agent program offers you. But what really makes Trinity’s freight agent program different than others are the people behind it. It’s their commitment and dedication they have in helping you grow to be as successful as you want to be.
We realize you have a choice in who you’d like to partner with in your business. However, if what you’re looking for is a long-term partnership that is supportive of your growth, offers you continued education to remain competitive, and most of all, is made up of a Team of people who are passionate, dedicated, and striving for excellence, then Trinity Logistics may be the freight agent program for you.
