What is a freight broker?

A freight broker is an intermediary between a shipper and a freight service provider. Freight brokers can specialize in certain types of freight, such as equipment hauling on lowboys, oversize, bulk tanker, auto, or other types of freight transportation

Why do companies use freight brokers?

Whether you carry freight or need to ship it, there are so many moving parts that it’s easy to drop the ball. Miscommunications, delays, and freight damage can cost a company loss in time and money. For shippers, as they grow their operation and ship more freight, they might not have a line of credit to cover freight up front. They also might not have time or staff to maintain a level of quality standards. As a freight carrier, you need reliable access to freight year around so you can boost or maintain your level of earnings. No matter which end of the equation you’re on, it’s beneficial to work with freight brokers.
