How To Choose A Freight Broker
Freight Brokers are not all the same.
There are lots of good freight brokers out there, but finding the right one for you is harder than it seems. Here are a few items to check off the list before deciding who to trust with your valuable freight..
Ask the broker you’re considering if they have a federal property broker license issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). For-hire motor carrier authority is not the same as broker authority.
How does your prospective broker validate shippers before using them? Ask about their selection criteria, such as operating authority, safety rating and insurance coverage.
Your freight broker’s ability or inability to pay shippers and carriers will affect you and your shipments. Ask for permission to do a credit check before you make a decision.
The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) requires licensed property brokers to abide by a strict code of ethics when dealing with shippers and carriers. Look for a broker who belongs to a reputable trade group.
Truckload service is common but you might need something different like LTL, open deck, vans, reefers or refrigerated vans? Make sure to find out if your broker has multiple model options available.
Good freight brokers communicate constantly with shippers and carriers – and with you. Find out about their processes for giving instructions, matching carriers to loads, confirming pickup and delivery, etc.
Ask about contingent cargo insurance to pay shipper loss or damage claims if the carrier and its insurance company won’t pay. Liability insurance and errors and omissions insurance are also good safeguards.
