Why use Freight Broker Companies?

Freight broker companies match shippers that need to transport goods with carriers that want to provide the service.

Freight broker companies play an important role in the movement of cargo as a transportation intermediary.

"Transportation intermediaries leverage their knowledge, investment in technology and people resources to help both the shipper and carrier succeed."-Robert A. Voltmann, executive director and CEO of the Transportation Intermediaries Association

Brokers provide an important and valuable service to both motor carriers and shippers. They help carriers fill the trucks and earn a commission for their efforts.

They help shippers find reliable motor carriers that they (the shippers) might not have otherwise known about.

Freight broker companies can act as a "traffic department" for the shipper, coordinating all their shipping needs.

Freight broker companies aren't new to the trucking industry; they've been around since the early 20th century. Before the 1970s, regulations governing brokers were so restrictive that few firms even tried to gain entry into the industry.

Federal transportation policy changes during the 1970s brought an easing to regulatory restrictions. This created new entrepreneurial opportunities for many freight broker companies.

  • We are located in a remote geographical area and it can be very difficult finding drivers that are not only willing to pick-up at our location but are also reliable. AFI has been able to provide reliable drivers every time, even with short notice. They have gotten us out of a pinch on more than one occasion and had a driver on our property and ready to load with less than 12 hours notice.
