When we use the phrase "shipping expert" at FreightCenter, it's usually in reference to one of our many freight agents. These are the men and women who review your quote forms, help make sure that the carrier you choose is the right one for your shipment and verify that all the information you've provided is correct. They make supply chains more efficient and effective by acting as your business's virtual shipping department.
Freight agents work in two different departments at FreightCenter, LTL (Less-than-Truckload) and TL (Truckload). Read about the differences between these two departments in the blog post, Freight Quote Factors: Full Truckload vs Less-than-Truckload.
Customers that ship on a regular or semi-regular basis soon learn the value of working and building a relationship with the same freight agent for each of their shipments. In an industry where details matter and mistakes can be expensive, it's important to have an expert on your side.
