Freight Broker Thinking

The Benefits of Using a Freight Broker

When it comes to the planning, routes and long distances that accompanies shipping goods, it takes expertise to navigate the obstacles and challenges that can arise- it’s part of the journey, right?

Logistics keeps the global economy flowing, so a smooth shipment that arrives in timely fashion is crucial. Shippers have to focus their attention on one thing: the valuable product they need to get from point A to point B. All goods are different and require unique circumstances for shipping, whether it’s the preservation of food or the the size and bulk of furniture. While the shipper is tasked with manufacturing the product and overseeing distribution, negotiating shipping costs and orchestrating the communication between carriers to ensure cargo travels safely with no headaches for the shipper, a freight broker is needed.

Why do I need a freight broker?

When it comes to shipping a product, time is of the essence and resources are limited. It can be difficult for shippers to establish relationships with drayage carriers and they may lack the experience and knowledge to plan the best way to ship their cargo. A freight broker acts as the middle man, connecting the shipper to the necessary carrier companies and executing the logistics at the most cost effective prices. They have the knowledge of the shipping industry and the technological resources to handle the process and so shippers can focus on their product and enjoy some peace of mind.
