Our History

Matthew Brosious co-founded American Freight Companies - the parent company of FreightCenter – with his father James Brosious in September of 1998 to facilitate freight shipping services for both infrequent and frequent 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 develop strong relationships with 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 more than 100 freight carriers.

Committed to continued growth, FreightCenter has integrated many processes to further streamline a unique customer experience. In addition to its online freight quote engine, FreightCenter offers a shipping calculator widget for eBay, an open-source API for web developers, and transportation management system (TMS).

As the CEO and President, Matthew Brosious stands firmly behind his company’s mission to provide innovative ways to better serve customers. We strive to provide courteous and professional service at a great value.
