Freight Brokerage

A freight broker is a company, or individual, who is a liaison between shippers and asset carriers.  The broker tenders a shippers’ freight to an asset carrier; manages the shipment from origin to destination; then invoices the shipper, with the necessary paperwork and pays the carrier.

The most reputable freight brokers are members of the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), which is an education and policy organization for North American transportation intermediaries.

With the freight market consisting of ten’s of thousands of carriers and shippers, a freight broker is the most efficient manner to match reputable carriers with a shipper’s requirement for the best service and value, particularly when capacity is tight or a shipper has a project or season surge.
