WHAT IS A FREIGHT BROKER?
A freight agency, or brokerage, acts on behalf of a shipper to contract a freight carrier to transport the shippers' goods. Freight brokers provide outsourced logistics for supply chains with shipping needs. FreightCenter is a freight broker. We act as a liaison between the shipper and the carrier. Acting to fill trucks to capacity, saving our partners and customers both time and money.
An established freight broker like FreightCenter has relationships with carrier companies. The benefits of these relationships typically include price discounts and custom service areas. Brokers have the ability to service individual needs that a carrier can't take the time to address on its own. A broker provides businesses that need to ship products with the ability to transport those products with excellent carriers that would not, otherwise, offer affordable rates.
A transportation broker takes on the role of a shipping department for the customer. Their duties may include scheduling pick up and deliveries. They also do all the paperwork, tracking information, and all issues of the load. Brokers are a cost effective method of shipping loads for people. Especially people who do not use a shipping department. Brokers assist shipping departments who are looking to save money with volume discounts. They have industry knowledge to safely transport shipments.
