A freight broker is simply an individual or a company that brings together a shipper that needs to transport goods with an authorized motor carrier that wants to provide the service. A freight broker falls into the category of transportation intermediary, meaning it is neither a shipper nor an asset-owning carrier. Freight brokers provide an important and valuable service to both carriers and shippers, helping carriers fill the trucks, earning a commission for their efforts, and helping shippers find reliable carriers that they might not have otherwise known about.
Many businesses have limited resources to staff an in-house logistics department. Instead, they source that work out to a freight management provider or freight broker.
Freight brokers are in daily communication with the trucking and transportation industries and have the expertise to negotiate competitive freight rates while maintaining the customer’s delivery schedule.
