Freight Services are methods of transporting shipments heavier than 150lbs. They can range from Air Freight, Ocean Freight, Rail, LTL (Less-Than-Truckload) and Truckload. Goods are transported by contracting freight carrierss that specialize in specific methods of transportation. Using a freight forwarder or freight broker will save you time and money. Freight brokers have established relationships with freight service companies that might not ordinarily deal with smaller shippers. Rates are based on history and volume of shipments.
Freight services compete for business against one another. When they offer discounts, those discounts are based on the customer's shipping history. When you use a freight broker like FreightCenter, you reap the financial benefits of our shipping history with the carrier. Even if you've never shipped before, you will still save.
