A freight broker is simply an individual or a company that brings together a shipper that needs to transport goods with an authorized motor carrier that wants to provide the service. A freight broker falls into the category of transportation intermediary, meaning it is neither a shipper nor an asset-owning carrier. Freight brokers provide an important and valuable service to both carriers and shippers, helping carriers fill the trucks, earning a commission for their efforts, and helping shippers find reliable carriers that they might not have otherwise known about.
A freight broker uses third-party companies to help vendors ship freight all over North America. Brokers in the freight industry are also referred to as 3PL or TPL (Third-Party Logistics). We act as a liaison between shippers and authorized freight carriers who may otherwise never connect. A freight brokerage also works with vendors capable of handling, processing, and storing freight. Freight brokers negotiate the terms of the order and arrange for pickup and delivery.
