A freight broker or agent, also known as an interstate freight agent, is the person who completes shipping business transactions on behalf of your company.
A freight agent is a person who acts as an intermediary between a shipper and a transportation provider.
What do they do?
Freight agents, to start a freight trucking business, match a shipper with a carrier who will provide an appropriate shipment at a competitive price. Agents generally serve as third-party intermediaries between shippers and carriers.
