FreightCenter Announces Formal Brokerage Logistics Division

Article on - November 20, 2009, a third-party logistics provider and web-based freight solutions company, has announced the emergence of a new brokerage logistics division within its corporate identity. This new division strengthens their transportation services offering to include a larger base of carriers and enhanced solutions for truckload, air, intermodal, and international shipments; thus becoming a more all-inclusive, extensive transportation solution for customers and carriers.

With more than 12 years of experience in the transportation industry, FreightCenter has established itself as an industry leader with continuous advancements and new solutions for its customers. The separation and formation of this division is in direct response to their customers, as their requests and needs move beyond LTL and branch out towards intermodal, international, and complete supply-chain disciplines. The solution was to announce a formal division complete with an expanded base of carrier relationships and trained experienced account managers skilled at finding end-to-end solutions to meet the needs of customers. This service enhancement allows FreightCenter to add freight transportation specialists and experience continued growth while working in a difficult industry and economic climate.

“Our online quoting system will continue to be the ideal solution for individuals and the more casual shipper," says Matthew Brosious, president and founder of FreightCenter. "With this new logistics division, we will be able to answer the needs of our commercial and corporate customers in a more complete manner – offering full-circle solutions tailored to their individualized and unique needs.”

To lead this new division, FreightCenter has hired Ken Cromwell as the new Director of Brokerage Logistics. Cromwell brings a well-rounded wealth of transportation knowledge to his new role at FreightCenter with more than 11 years of experience in the freight and logistics industry. Before beginning this new position, Cromwell worked for Decker Truck Line in various roles moving up to their Director of Business Development in charge of pricing rate structures, customer service, and all sales activity. Before then he was employed with Deaton, Inc. as a freight broker.

“Leading this new department is a perfect marriage of Cromwell's previous experience and inherited skills," said Brosious. "It's important to understand both sides of the business in order to establish our presence, grow our business, and be able to deliver complete, unique logistics solutions for our customers.”
