Navigating the Supply Chain

The transportation or shipping process includes a number of key players, including Motor Carriers and Freight Brokers as defined by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA).

A freight broker is a middleman working with the shippers/manufacturers needing to move their products and the carriers/trucks authorized to take possession of and haul freight. Freight brokers can be known by many different names within the transportation industry, such as: transportation broker, truck broker, trucking broker, and load broker.

A freight broker agent, or freight agent, works under a freight brokerage, generally by contract.

The potential of this market is huge, that is why big players are entering this market.
