Freight Broker Services are controlled by a set of federal regulations. These services are provided with last minute shipping arrangements, expedited freight services and all kinds of freight shipping moving services. A freight broker is an individual or company that serves as a liaison between another individual or company that needs shipping services and an authorized motor carrier. Freight broker services are valuable to both shippers and motor carriers. Freight brokers help shippers find reliable carriers that might otherwise be difficult to locate.
Freight forwarders assist exporters in preparing price quotations by advising on freight costs, port charges, consular fees, costs of special documentation, insurance costs and the handling fees. Freight forwarders reserve the necessary space on a vessel, aircraft, train or truck. Freight forwarders make arrangements with customs brokers overseas to ensure that the goods comply with customs export documentation regulations.
