Shippers and Brokers

Shippers and Brokers

A broker and a shipper are both required for the smooth and successful transportation of goods.

A shipper is a person or company that is usually the supplier or owner of the commodities being shipped. A consignor is also referred to as a carrier. A carrier is a person or company that transports goods for another person or company and is responsible for any possible loss of the goods during transport.

A freight broker is a person or company that matches shippers and receivers of cargo shipments with the carriers that make the shipment possible.

Freight brokers are usually licensed to get the necessary permits, licenses, and registrations for doing business. By facilitating the transportation contract, they help businesses move cargo.

CHALLENGES FOR SHIPPERS AND BROKERS

These two different sectors are completely different in the way they operate, but they both face the same challenges.

One of the biggest challenges is data. Data on shipment volumes and destinations may be inaccurate or unverifiable, while freight rates and prices fluctuate constantly. Are you facing these problems?

Avoiding double brokering.

What exactly is double brokering? This is when a carrier accepts a load for a specific motor carrier number, but runs the load under a different one instead. This is illegal unless the shipper consents to the arrangement. This practice is mostly done by different companies without the clients’ consent.
Working with us, you’ll never experience double brokering on your loads. We work as independent dispatchers for drivers with whom we can provide all the paperwork.

They always get me home on time. My dispatcher keeps me booked up with loads as long as I have hours. Everything my friend told me was true. THE ONLY COMPANY that I’ve ever worked for in the past 3 years that treats me with respect!

I would recommend Fleet Care company to other business owner-operators who care about their bottom line. I like the way support managers construct a dialog with my drivers. With their capacity even for a small company, there is an ability to expand and to still be assured they will take care of us.
