Introduction to Brokers, Truckers, and the Transportation Industry

When you drive on the highway, you probably see 18-wheelers passing by. These trucks help companies transport their merchandise across the state or across the country. If you are interested in being part of the transportation industry, the following terms can provide you with a proper introduction.

  • Broker – Someone who acts as an intermediary between the person shipping an item and the one who will be doing the transporting. Their job is to coordinate the two parties into a deal at an acceptable price range and time frame. A brokering company handles the logistics of the trip as well as any paperwork required such as for customs.

  • Shipper – The client of a broker who has something they need transported to a different location. This can be an individual or a company, depending on what type of customer the broker deals with. They usually choose the date the item needs to arrive by and then leave it up to the broker to find someone who can do the job without going over the budget.

  • Carrier – The person who drives the truck the containers are in. They work long hours, sometimes driving through the night, to get to the destination on time. Many truckers get paid for mile, not per hour. This means the faster they get there, the better.

  • Cargo – The item that needs to be shipped. The cargo decides what sort of truck is needed. For example, grocery stores commonly used refrigerated vehicles to make sure the food does not spoil on the way.

  • Agent – A person who works for a broker. They assist in the finer details of the operation, such as checking the logistics and confirming the rate with both parties. Many agents use this job to gain the experience needed to become a broker in the future.

    Truck transportation is what keeps America running 24/7. The amount of freight that travels back and forth across the country in any given week is astounding. Whether you are shipping a cargo container or livestock, a broker can help you accomplish your goals and meet your needs. A broker will deal with the all the shipping logistics. These companies will pay attention to any time sensitive cargo. They will make sure your product is safe and well cared for. They will also deal with any customs or clearance issues that might arise with international routes. Transport that travels to and from points in other countries will need special attention. A good agency will take care of all the particulars. They will track all movements if they run a good business. There are different rates for different services, of course. If your container needs to be refrigerated or if you require a flatbed truck the price may vary. Whichever forwarder you chose, they'll take care of the logistics. A good carrier company will know how to utilize load boards to find the best routes. Ground travel is still a very reliable way to get goods from point A to point B. Drivers work around the clock to make sure manufactures and suppliers are never in need of parts or finished goods. Produce can be shipped from California to Maine in a short enough time to ensure the freshness of the product. Beef and poultry are brought to market in much the same way that they have been for decades.
