Freight FAQ

What is a freight broker?

A freight broker serves as a liaison between an individual/company that requires the shipping services of an authorized motor carrier. Though a freight broker plays an important role in the movement of cargo, the broker doesn't function as a shipper or a carrier.

Instead, a freight broker works to determine the needs of a shipper and connects that shipper with a carrier willing to transport the items at an acceptable price.
