Executive Leadership

Matthew J. Brosious

President/ CEO

Matt’s entrepreneurial mindset is the backbone behind the core of FreightCenter. His natural ability to build relationships along with tenacity when working with various carriers during the beginning steps of the company’s existence has transformed the company to where it stands today. It is this perseverance to work and establish relationships and deeper discounts that has translated into continuously larger savings for the customer and allowing the company to flourish in the manner that it has through the years.

Growing up, Matt’s family moved around quite a bit due to career changes and promotions, though he considers his strongest ties to be with the Mid West and New York. Matt's work ethic and discipline were learned in part from his years of being a United States Army's elite 2nd Ranger Battalion, where he was awarded the Ranger Tab, Airborne Wings and the Army Commendation Medal amongst others. His vast understanding of the freight industry, and savvy computer, technical, and networking skills have proven to be a big asset for the business. FreightCenter's huge network consisting of the top names in the industry exemplifies how well-known and respected Matt is throughout the transportation community.

“We are consistently striving to add more value-added services and state of the art, advanced tools for our customers. We want to ensure that our customers receive an efficient and personable experience every time they use our services. Our customers have come to rely on us for their transportation and shipping needs through the years, and we work hard to ensure they are always getting the best price and value.”
