Transportation Brokerage Service from Delta Express

FREIGHT BROKER: A BIG ROLE IN LOGISTICS

Transportation brokers are people or companies who serve as a liaison between the customer (the one who needs shipping services) and the carrier. Brokers don’t have a fleet, but they are experienced in finding the best way to transport your freight. Brokers can specialize in one particular type of transportation, for example, LTL brokers. Or they can have a broader freight broker license and find the carrier for any freight class.

YOU NEED A FREIGHT BROKER WHEN:

  • You want transportation to be faster and cost less;
  • Your current provider doesn’t meet your expectations;
  • Your business is growing, and you need more capacity.

BENEFITS YOU GET FROM WORKING WITH A FREIGHT BROKER:

  • Money and time savings;
  • Flexible solutions for your business;
  • Brokers know how to ship a cargo;
  • Good discounts and lower shipping expenses;
  • You work with a reliable partner.

WHAT DOES A FREIGHT BROKER DO?

The primary role of a freight broker is to connect a shipper who needs to deliver cargo with a transportation company that provides such service. Brokers offer valuable services for shippers and carriers.

They help carriers to fill their trucks and increase their income. They help shippers find a reliable transportation company that will take care of their cargo. Many big companies prefer to work with freight brokers and use them as a full traffic department. In this case, the broker company fully controls any logistics process.

WHAT ARE THE DUTIES OF A FREIGHT BROKER?

Freight brokers’ responsibility is more than connecting shippers and carriers. Their specialization is to find the fastest and most cost-efficient way to transport freight. Here are the essential responsibilities of a freight broker:

  1. Carriers evaluation. Brokers research to find the carrier that matches your needs the most;
  2. Shipping coordination. They select the best way to deliver your cargo. They also prepare all necessary documentation for shipment;
  3. Freight tracking. The broker tracks each shipment. Recording the dimensions, freight class, and the weight of the load is also their responsibility;
  4. Prices negotiation. It is one of the most laborious duties. The broker must negotiate the price, so the carrier and the shipper are satisfied. A freight broker also determines additional charges that may be added to shipping costs.
