No double brokerage
We fully understand the pain of brokers from double brokering, and for this important reason we strictly work on behalf of a specific carrier as independent dispatchers. We only reserve loads for drivers to whom we have provided all the paperwork.
In our opinion, the second most difficult problem in the broker-carrier relationship is getting honest freight information in a timely manner. Our office works 24/7 to provide honest, often overlooked updates to carriers.
We serve multiple companies and owner-operators, but each of our dispatchers is assigned to a specific customer. We take transparency seriously and ensure that the freight you order is carried by the same carrier.
A win-win solution
By reducing the carrier’s overhead costs, the carrier will be able to price freight more flexibly, resulting in a win-win for you, without any loss in the carrier’s performance. In the end, both parties who take part in the shipment are happy.
Pool of Drivers
We lead the way in dispatch services and pride ourselves on the reliable work of our 300+ drivers. We always have drivers ready to help when a shipment needs to be resubmitted, but only after your approval.
We work hard to make sure the job is worry-free and on time, and we take responsibility for our actions. Failures do happen, but we guarantee no stories, no games, just clear, honest, timely and detailed responses.
When booking a shipment with a broker, we solely serve the interests of the carrier we mention in our conversation, and all paperwork is handled as an administrative task on behalf of the carrier. Our dispatchers work with specific carriers. We do not give the cargo to one carrier instead of another, and the agreed upon payments for the cargo are not made through our operations, but are paid directly to the carrier we represent, so we are simply service providers for the carriers. We don’t consider ourselves brokers, but we have the best work ethic for brokers regarding ongoing business relationships. We work hard to maintain professionalism in this industry and help drivers stay safe.
Many carriers have neither the experience nor the time to choose a good operator (forwarder). In this case, the cargo to be transported is usually of high value and may include fragile items, or the transportation process is subject to tight deadlines. In this case, they should trust the best services of a freight broker and the best freight forwarder. A freight broker helps shippers find qualified carriers.
WHAT IS A FREIGHT BROKER?
In the trucking industry, freight brokers handle transactions between shippers and carriers at all stages of freight transportation.
At the same time, freight brokers make it easy to find reliable carriers with proven reliability. In most cases carriers deliver goods on time, but there are risks that are difficult to pinpoint.
Freight brokers allow carriers to increase their income by providing cargo for transportation. However, a freight broker’s function is not limited to connecting carriers and shippers. His responsibilities include communicating and protecting the interests of both parties, as well as monitoring cargo and verifying its departure and delivery.
FREIGHT BROKER SITES TO FIND FREIGHT AND CARRIERS
In search of the best offers, brokers carefully analyze the service provider’s advertisements on specialized freight broker sites. As a result, they can screen out low-quality freight carriers and choose competent ones among them. In fact, ground transport accounts for 66% of all cargo deliveries. The most common of the many ways that carriers, shippers and brokers use to secure and improve the quality of freight deliveries are message boards. There are about a hundred message boards on the Internet, some of which do not require payment, but most of which, of course, are not free. Brokers carefully research the most visited and reliable sites. On bulletin boards, brokers and freight forwarders check the freight offered and the possible modes of transportation and, like a bulletin board, order freight that fits the given characteristics.
Brokers in the shipping industry serve a critical function as an intermediary between shippers and carriers. In addition to acting as an intermediary, brokers are also involved in cargo monitoring, as they maintain strict records of shipments and cargoes, as well as other additional information. In addition, brokers are responsible for the legal aspects of shipping, supported by industry experts and consultants.
FREIGHT BROKERS AND FREIGHT FORWARDERS
Freight brokers and freight forwarders, as well as logistics freight brokers and providers (3PLs), are different, even though they have some things in common. An individual broker can act as the sole point of contact in their transactions. The broker sells, negotiates with the trucking company, and supervises delivery and routing. In addition, the freight broker provides supply chain consulting support to optimize product delivery.
The freight broker earns money on the difference in the price of transportation. This difference earns him income. Freight brokers must find a motor carrier. One reliable method is message boards. Using special thematic message boards, freight brokers quickly find competent professionals who are interested in transporting cargo by publishing ads with information about the goods and technical nuances. Time is money and in this regard, the more cargo he can transport, the more he can earn.
Freight brokers contribute to the reduction of liability for carriers and shippers. Contrary to the ups and downs of the industry, there is something shippers and carriers need to be sure of: the quality of service and the reliability of their shipping partners. Sometimes dishonest brokers don’t pay drivers’ wages for months at a time while paying other expenses. As mentioned above, hiring a reliable broker is one possible way to make sure that only quality carriers will work with your freight.
FREIGHT BROKERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR:
- Regulation of the entire mechanism of transportation of goods (e.g., from warehouse to store);
- Communication with the customer and the service provider;
- Coordination of tariffs and agreements between the carrier and the businesses;
It is imperative to find freight broker agents who are trustworthy. As with Load Boards, there are many freight agents or independent logistics providers. Treat your choice of freight agent with caution: there are those who advertise themselves as «well-known telemarketing salesmen» with no experience or knowledge of the trucking industry, and yet try their hand at the industry. Nevertheless, reputable freight agents are in the business of finding proven shippers and carriers focused on seamless cooperation.
Logistics and transportation is a volatile industry. It takes a lot of effort to find a quality logistics freight broker who can provide high-quality one-time services or maintain this property on a regular basis. And the easiest method of finding a decent carrier is through a broker.
Brokers have connections with reliable carriers for shippers. Although vetting conditions may vary depending on each individual carrier, it is usually necessary for the broker to prove a successful track record and no complaints about deals that have already been made.
