A freight broker acts as an intermediary between a business needing to deliver a shipment of goods (the shipper) and the transportation method (the carrier). There are many benefits to working with a freight broker.
Pro #1: Freight Brokers Ensure Your Shipments Arrive On Time
Freight brokers help smooth the shipping process by coordinating all shipping needs for a business. Their expertise ensures freight arrives at its destination in good condition and on time. Working with a freight broker will ensure your shipment will arrive at its destination in an efficient manner.
Pro #2: Freight Brokers Are Shipping Experts
Freight brokers are trucking industry experts. They are dedicated to forming relationships with trucking carriers to grow their network. Instead of a business owner trying to keep up with the latest trucking industry trends, the freight broker takes care of it.
Pro #3: Freight Brokers Help Save Money
Freight brokers have a high volume of shipments to coordinate, which allows them to get freight rate discounts. Brokers pass down these discounts to the business owner. A freight broker will negotiate rates to get the best deal for the business. Many times a freight broker will get a better rate than if the business owner would have negotiated prices on his or her own. Freight brokers’ large network of carriers allows them to find the best rate.
Pro #4: Freight Brokers Save Business Owners’ Time
Business owners are busy. They don’t have the time to negotiate rates, create relationships with carriers and run their business. A freight broker frees up the business owner’s workload by completing the time-consuming task of coordinating shipments. Freight brokers allow the business owner to focus on core operations and other important parts of the business.
