Our History

The Beginning of FreightCenter

FreightCenter’s story began with a family-owned shipping and packaging store called “Send It Packing,” run by Matthew and his father, Thomas Brosious. They started this small business with a vision to simplify the complex world of freight shipping for companies and individuals. Working from a modest storefront, they focused on building solid relationships with carriers and customers. Their main goal was to create a one-stop solution where people could easily compare rates and services from different carriers and choose the best option for their shipping needs.

Embracing the Internet

As the internet became more popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s, FreightCenter saw an opportunity to leverage this new technology to grow their business. They developed an online platform allowing customers to get instant quotes, book shipments, and track deliveries from their computers. This was a significant shift in the freight industry, which had traditionally relied on phone calls and paper documents. By going digital, FreightCenter made shipping faster, easier, and more convenient for everyone.

Technological Innovations

FreightCenter continued to invest in technology to improve its services. They developed advanced software to analyze shipping data and provide customers with the most efficient and cost-effective shipping options. This innovation helped them stand out in the industry and attract more customers. They also introduced tools like real-time tracking and automated notifications, giving customers better control over their shipments and peace of mind.

Expanding Services

Over the years, FreightCenter expanded its range of services to meet the diverse needs of its customers. They began offering LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping, full truckload shipping, international shipping, and intermodal shipping, which combines different modes of transportation. FreightCenter could serve a broader range of customers by providing various shipping options, from small businesses to large corporations.

Building a Strong Team

A critical factor in FreightCenter’s success has been its dedicated team of employees. The company values hard work, innovation, and excellent customer service. They have created a positive work environment where employees are encouraged to share ideas and work together to solve problems. This strong team spirit has helped FreightCenter provide outstanding customer service and maintain a competitive edge in the industry.

FreightCenter has always prioritized its customers. It understands that each customer has unique shipping needs and strives to provide personalized solutions. By listening to customer feedback and continuously improving its services, FreightCenter has built a loyal customer base. Its commitment to customer satisfaction is one of the reasons it has remained a trusted name in the freight shipping industry for over two decades.

With a focus on technology and customer service, it is always looking for new ways to improve its services and stay ahead of the competition.
