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. Cargo often requires handling by heavy haul trucking companies or flatbed trucking companies and a broker can accommodate both.

“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. source: Entrepeneur.com

Satisfied Customer Testimonials

Tip o' my hat to AFI

Here are my simple-yet-often-unmet expectations from a freight broker:
1) Know your shipper
2) Know your receiver
3) Know your freight
4) Know what equipment is needed to move it

Ty, AFI agent I worked with, had met and exceeded my expectations on all four counts.

I tip my hat.

Saved the Day

After a different company failed to get me a truck on the scheduled day, I was really in a bind. Ty with AFI was able to get me a truck there the next day. Driver was a real pro, and the load was delivered right on time. I will definitely use AFI in the future.

Thanks a bunch

by Teresa Parker on American Freight Inc
Shipping Manager

I have used AFI/Adam Kerr for our trucking requirements for years. He always communicates with me on a daily basis... how many trucks he has, where the trucks are & where he needs them to be loaded to. Adam is very honest and I appreciate that about him. When he says a truck will be here... it is. When there is a problem with a truck... Adam is on the phone with me.. telling me what is going on. These are just some of the reasons I use American Freight, Inc... but really it is the relationship that Allura/Plycem & Adam Kerr have built together over the years.
