Freight broker are bonded and federally regulated companies. Typically, freight brokers have access to a large network of freight carriers and they search for the right availability based on the customer’s needs and specifications. Freight brokers rarely touch or “fingerprint” the freight that they are coordinating shipments for. Typically, a freight broker will engage in helping shippers find the best carrier and price for any given load. The freight brokers offer various “value added services” to the transportation, distribution, and logistics of freight.
