Why Should I Work With A Freight Broker?

Posted by LNC Logistics

Many of the largest and most successful companies dedicate an entire department to their logistic shipping needs. This is done because these companies understand the importance of flexible shipping at the lowest cost available. For many small and medium-sized businesses, their shipping needs are too low to dedicate an entire department, which can, unfortunately, result in overpaying for subpar shipping. At LNC Logistics in Houston, we help customers all over North America lock-in the lowest rates for their freight shipping needs. There is no reason you need to overpay for your shipping in order to get the highest quality customer service paired with the most flexible options. Whether you are a new company looking to start your shipping on the right foot or are an established company that is looking to improve on your current shipping strategies, our team can help you. 


What is a freight broker?

According to Wikipedia.com:

A freight broker is an intermediary between a shipper and a freight service provider.


Freight brokers can specialize in certain types of freight, such as equipment hauling on lowboys, oversize, bulk tanker, auto, or other types of freight transportation.


A freight broker in the United States must be licensed by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Administration (FMCSA).


A freight broker, in freight transport (cargo), over land in the United States by truck is often used as part of the logistics. This may be part of an overall shipbroking using a cargo broker, a freight forwarder, third-party logistics broker (3PL), and even a fourth-party broker when outsourcing is needed (as opposed to in-house) for freight transportation. The brokering can be single mode or by multimodal transportation and can use specialized brokers on a permanent basis or as needed to ensure timely traffic management.


A load may be posted on a truckload board by shippers, brokers, or agents. This may occur with special orders, brokers and/or agents that do not have an established logistics base, or brokers and agents seeking a backhaul for a truck not in a high-traffic lane. Many brokers specialize in certain freight such as full truckload (FTL) or less than truckload, auto, boat or yacht, bulk tanker (liquid or dry goods), oversize, equipment hauling on lowboys, flatbed, drop deck, or any other mode of freight transportation with enough loads.
