How Freightcenter Operates as a Freight Agency
FreightCenter is a third party logistics company that helps companies streamline their supply chain. One way we do that is by serving as the company’s freight agency on a non-exclusive basis. Our agents work in-house and operate under the authority of our license to schedule and book freight. They work with customers to arrange transportation of goods and products. Agents also work with our carrier partners to help maximize load capacity.
Here is a partial list of things FreightCenter does as a freight agency.
- Provide freight rates to the customer
- Matcha carriers services to a customer’s requirements
- Schedule pickup and deliveries
- Generate all shipment paperwork
- Serve as liaison between shippers and carriers
- Pay carriers on behalf of the shipper and receiving payment directly from the shipper
- Solve shipment issues
- Provide expert advice to the shipping customer
How to Save Up to 95% When Using Our Freight Agency
FreightCenter is where top carriers compete for your freight shipping business. In recognition of the services we handle for them and the volume of shipping we book across the country every day, carriers in our network significantly discount how much they charge FreightCenter. Those discounts are the source of our customers’ savings.
Typically, our customers save 25%, 50%, 75% or more – all the way up to 95% – off what the customer would have to pay a carrier if they’d booked through the carrier directly.
To make saving on shipping as easy as possible, FreightCenter has developed proprietary software that enables customers to access rate quotes and estimated transit time from multiple carriers instantly. Our technology is backed up by our teams of shipping agents, some of whom specialize in Less-than-Truckload (LTL) freight shipping, while others specialize in Truckload (TL) freight shipping.
