Using a 3PL (Third Party Logistics company) to broker shipping is how small and medium size businesses get the cheapest freight rate available. In the freight shipping industry, the more you ship, the lower your rates. Businesses that don't ship a lot are at a disadvantage. As major shippers, 3PLs use their bargaining power to overcome that disadvantage.
Some carriers use the lure of discounts to convince an SMB to sign a long-term contract. But many carriers specialize in only one or two services, so their contracts can be extremely limiting. Avoid the hassle of searching for the right services at the right price by utilizing a 3rd party logistics provider like FreightCenter.
