Freight Agent Company
Freight brokers match truckers with empty space with manufacturers who need goods transported. A freight broker, also known as a property broker, never takes possession of the goods transported but arranges for its transportation. A licensed freight broker is able to operate his own business or work for a company that specializes in brokering transportation.
