Why Our Mission Matters
FreightCenter was formed in 1998 and has continued to grow in size, strength, customers, and relationships as the years have progressed. Based in the Tampa Bay area, FreightCenter is a leading provider of freight solutions and handles hundreds of shipping transactions daily, with numbers consistently rising. Our mission is to create an all-in-one shipping solution service for our customers, complete with personalized attention and customer support while continuing to develop and introduce innovative web technology solutions unique to the industry.
Innovation was the foundation of FreightCenter and the key to its success, offering instant online quotes and facilitating freight shipping for those unfamiliar with the process. Entrepreneurs Matthew and 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. From its conception, FreightCenter began developing solid relationships with an extensive network of local, national, and international transportation carriers.
FreightCenter.com has grown at an accelerated pace from its beginnings. In a short time, they 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 streamline the customer experience at FreightCenter.com further. These include implementing a shipping calculator for both eBay and commercial customers, offering unique shipping solutions for specialized industries, and customized API shipping integration.
The executives of FreightCenter stand firmly behind their mission to provide innovative ways to serve their customers and handle all types of freight needs. With 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 the hard-working, focused employees at FreightCenter.
