A freight broker acts as a link between a company that needs their products shipped and a carrier who has the ability to move those products. In 2013, there were over 14,000 freight brokers in the United States; however, today that number has been reduced to only 8,000.
When selecting a freight broker, we suggest using this rule of thumb: choose your freight broker as you would your doctor. Make sure that you do your research. While it may seem tedious to find one who can best fit your business, there are many advantages to using an intermediary.
A good freight broker knows the shipping industry in and out, uses the latest technology to accomplish client goals, and works with reliable carriers that otherwise may be hard to find. In other words, he makes it easy to get your products where you need them to go, and in a timely manner!
A good freight broker can find the best shipping option for you saving you time and money. He will approach each shipment with equal amounts of attention and diligence to find the best possible carrier and price so that you know you are getting your money’s worth.
A good freight broker can take care of any size, weight, or specific measurement issues you may have to consider when dealing with traditional shipping companies. If you want it shipped, a freight broker will make it happen.
