What is the best way to go about a career in transportation service sales?

Hello, I am a current college student looking to get my undergraduate degree in Business Administration with a major in Marketing and a minor in Operations and Supply Chain Management. I am very interested in the transportation industry,truck freight shipping & rail freight shipping. I am wondering what is the best way to go about a career in transportation selling truck freight service or rail freight service working directly as a sales agent for the carrier it's self, not a third party broker. However, that being said I do realize that freight brokers are a very big part of the transporation business. I also would like information if any one has any on what it's like in the sales department for companies like TTX, GATX, Ryder, Xtra Lease or CIT Leasing. Thanks for the help! Mike
