Understanding the Distinction and Advantages of Partnering with a Dual Freight Forwarder and Broker

Say Cargo Express is both a freight forwarder and freight broker, but what does that mean and how can it benefit your business? In this blog, we will explore the differences between the two, as well as the advantages of working with a company that does both. 

What is a Freight Broker?

A freight broker primarily acts as an intermediary between shippers and carriers. They specialize in finding and negotiating transportation solutions on behalf of shippers, rather than handling the shipping itself. Their primary role is to connect businesses that need to move goods with transportation providers capable of handling the job. 

What is a Freight Forwarder?

Freight forwarders take a more hands-on approach role in the shipping process. While they also act as intermediaries, they are involved in the actual logistics of moving goods from point A to point B. This includes services like packaging, storage, and inventory management.

The Synergy of Both Services

Operating as both a freight forwarder and a freight broker enables us to provide a comprehensive suite of logistics services catering to a broad spectrum of shipping needs. We can offer:

  • Seamless Integration: Our clients benefit from streamlined communication channels and a single point of contact for all their logistics needs. This saves time and reduces the likelihood of errors when coordinating between different service providers.
