FreightCenter, based in Palm Harbor, Florida since 1998, is the largest privately-held and veteran-owned full-service 3rd Party Logistics company. Our primary focus is to assist individuals and businesses with their freight shipping needs; however, we also offer international, truckload and parcel shipping services. From competitive rates to fully optimized freight shipping solutions that handle needs for all types of businesses, FreightCenter is an all-in-one shipping solution service for our customers. Our service comes complete with personalized attention and customer support that is powered by our proprietary software.
Matthew Brosious, President & CEO, founded FreightCenter on July 28, 1998. At first, we found our niche servicing transactional freight shipping needs for the everyday consumer. We've since evolved from a traditional freight brokerage into a reputable and full service 3PL with a vast portfolio of transportation solutions from rail to truckload to parcel packages. We are the leading developer of true proprietary freight shipping technology that allows customers to compare rates and process shipments online. As our customers’ needs grow and change, we are committed to developing tools and logistics services that exceed their expectations. In fact, we’ve won several awards for our stellar and necessary approach of combining the power of technology with logistics.
Our goal is to handle freight shipping services for businesses of all kinds and sizes, from the transactional shipper to enterprise-level clients with large shipping volume needs. The key to our success is offering instant online quotes, providing award-winning freight software (transportation management system, or “TMS”) and providing the expertise your business needs to do what they do best. Since inception, we have developed strong relationships with local, national and international carriers to always give you competitive rates and options.
Believe it or not, it used to be easy to start a freight brokerage like FreightCenter. All you needed was access to carrier rates and a way to capture the attention of shippers who need freight transportation. In today’s age, the industry is heavily regulated and freight brokers are required to uphold consumer protection standards.
