What is a Freight Broker?
A freight broker is a person or a company that connects a shipper with a qualified carrier. Freight brokers manage a significant percentage of over-the-road freight transportation.
Freight brokerage services and companies allow you to focus on other important parts of your business, increasing efficiency and giving you a competitive advantage. Businesses want smooth freight movement and on-time delivery, which freight brokers can provide.
Through our freight brokerage solutions, we can handle even complicated lanes and offer capacity for your company’s shipping needs.
How Can Freight Broker Services Help You?
A freight broker may save you time and money. With their considerable industry knowledge and contacts, freight brokers can help negotiate prices and handle all communication between shippers and carriers.
What Do Freight Brokers Do?
Step 1: Order Tender
Order tendering is the first step in the transportation process. At this point, the broker will request you to submit all relevant information about your load, such as:
- Contact information
- Freight weight
- Freight type
- Freight measurements
- Any other relevant details
When the broker has gathered all of the information, the next step is to contact a freight business, a carrier, or a 3PL to arrange the shipment. This is known as load tendering. In addition, the broker will request that you specify the handling criteria, commodity type, and other key information.
Step 2: Load Scheduling
After the tender, a freight broker will enter your load into a transportation management system, or TMS. It’s a specialized software that allows brokers to book and manage loads more efficiently. Brokers may also use TMS to discover trustworthy and approved carriers to ensure the best service for you. The freight broker sets pick-up and delivery times once the load booking is confirmed.
Step 3: Transit
A 3PL tracks and controls your freight while it’s in transit through the TMS. Shippers have total insight into the shipping process and receive regular updates thanks to modern technologies. Shippers can remain up-to-date on the status of their freight and ensure that everything runs well by partnering with freight brokers and a third-party logistics provider.
Step 4: Loading
Freight loading is a critical stage in the transportation process, and brokers play a significant part in it. Freight brokers communicate with drivers to ensure they arrive on time and handle the cargo loading procedure properly. The carrier then signs a bill of lading and takes responsibility for your freight.
Step 5: Unloading
Once the truck arrives at the destination, the consignee signs the bill of lading during the unloading procedure. The broker receives the documentation and charges the shipper once the carrier confirms successful unloading and completes the relevant paperwork.
Step 6: Billing
The freight shipping process concludes with billing, which occurs when the freight broker provides an invoice to the shipper and the shipper pays the bill.
