Starting a one-person freight forwarder business is relatively easy: A good knowledge of the industry, some good contacts, a phone and a desk let you start quickly a little operation. The real challenge is to grow it to a sustainable level. Then you have to build a good team, to organize and manage a lot more traffic, to handle a bigger cash flow, etc... while maintaining clients happy and chasing new prospects. Eventually you, as an owner, spend a lot more time managing your organization instead of focusing on the growth.
This is the time to get organized.

2 - Provide yourself with a 360 vision
