Our History

James Brosious co-founded American Freight Companies - the parent company of FreightCenter - in September of 1998 to facilitate freight shipping services to one-time, occasional and small-business shippers. Innovation is the foundation of FreightCenter. The key to our success is offering instant online quotes and facilitating freight shipping for those not familiar with the process. From its inception, FreightCenter began to promptly develop strong relationships with a large network of local, national and international transportation carriers.

Our website FreightCenter.com has grown at an accelerated pace. In a short time, we have become one of the largest Internet-based freight logistics companies, offering instant pricing online from its internal database network of more than 100 freight carriers and varied services.

Committed to continued growth, FreightCenter.com has integrated many processes to further streamline the customer experience at FreightCenter.com. These include implementing a shipping calculator for eBay and commercial websites, offering unique shipping solutions for specialized industries and customized API shipping integration so our rates can be accessed in real time.

The executives of FreightCenter stand firmly behind their mission to provide innovative ways to serve their customers and handle all types of freight needs. We strive for continued revenue increases, more new and returning customers, innovative technology and e-commerce web solutions and strengthening carrier relationships. It is evident that this vision has turned into reality for our dedicated employees at FreightCenter.
