While LTL carriers do a good job, they are not always known for their expediency. So what can you do if you have a smaller shipment but it needs to arrive quickly and you’d rather not have offloaded at each terminal hub? We can help.
One Truckload for Efficient Deliveries
We have a network of carriers who specifically take on multiple loads to make one full truckload for a quicker transit time with fewer touches and at a fraction of the price you’d pay for a dedicated dry van. Our reps can help determine if moving a partial truckload shipment is the best option for your situation and if so, they can reach out to our carrier network to find capacity.
Frequently Asked Questions
Benefits of Working with a Freight Broker
There is a myriad of benefits to working with a freight broker but some of the most evident are that it saves time, money and resources. By working with a freight broker, you don’t have to worry about spending money on audits, training, an additional salary, benefits, and investment in equipment. It is like having a shipping department without having to spend money on a shipping department. The carrier relationships and market knowledge that brokers have established over the years allow them to lock in lower rates that you might not have access to as an infrequent shipper.
What Type of Businesses Should Use a Freight Broker?
Anyone who pays the freight charges on shipments going into or out of their locations is a perfect candidate to work with a freight broker.
How do I know what type of equipment is best suited to move my freight shipment?
One of the best ways to figure out the best equipment type for your shipment is to reach out to one of our brokers with dimensions and weight of the freight. With that information, along with any other specifications, they can advise what would be the best way to transport your shipment. Give us a call!

What’s the Difference Between a Broker Versus a Freight Forwarder?
While there are some similarities, freight brokers are responsible for finding trucks for domestic freight as well as shipments to and from Canada and Mexico. While freight brokers are focused on finding transportation solutions for domestic shipments, freight forwarders often perform a wide range of services for their clients. These services can include packaging services, warehousing, consolidating shipments, and preparing customs paperwork. Freight forwarders do handle domestic freight but it is usually in conjunction with an international pick up or delivery of that same freight.
