BENEFITS & ADVANTAGES: EXPLAINED
A broker arranges transportation as an intermediary (liaison) between shippers and carriers (trucks). A freight broker assists shippers in moving goods from a point of origin to their destinations by contracting carrier (trucking) companies.
A broker is an added value service, providing higher efficiency, cost-reduction & flexibility in your supply chain. Brokers save you time, energy, money and resources.
Brokers provide carriers with a large volume of business – this allows them better (volume) pricing that you may not receiving if working on your own. Brokers have an extensive network of transportation solutions, further enabling better service, handling options, transit times and pricing.
Does it cost more to use a broker?
NO! Using a broker does not cost you more, in fact it is more cost effective in most circumstances, to use a broker, rather than a carrier directly. Brokers use their large network of carriers (trucks), to find the best shipping solutions & handle all logistics details for you
