What is a freight broker?

A freight broker arranges freight shipping between shipper and a consignee. There are many advantages in utilizing the services provided by a freight broker. It will feel like you have your own shipping department without having to spend money on invoices, audits and training as well as reducing investment in equipment, computer systems you may have to buy. Employing a freight broker allows clients to spend more time focusing on other areas of their business rather than searching for carriers.
