A FREIGHT BROKERAGE CAN SAVE A SHIPPER A LOT OF MONEY
An established freight broker maintains relationships with a network of dependable carrier companies. A freight broker has the ability to service individual needs of a one-time or occasional shipper that a carrier can’t take the time to address on its own.
For providing these services, as well as for shipping consistently through its network , a freight broker receives substantially discounted freight rates from the carriers in its network.
A freight broker will share its discounts with its customers, allowing shippers to have their freight shipping needs met while saving a lot of money (up to 95%) versus the cost of booking directly with the carrier. For the occasional shipper shipping fewer than 40 times per month, using a freight broker is a highly cost-effective practice.
