Freight Broker

A Freight Broker, also known as a Freight Broker, is a person who is charged with the duty of acting as an intermediary between shippers and carriers. The work involves negotiating more favorable shipping rates and faster delivery times with a transport company.

Many factors affect a broker’s salary, especially location. Some companies choose to pay commissions to their brokers based on their performance, while others choose to pay them a fixed salary.

Freight brokers who run their own business have higher earning potential compared to their fellow employees. A self-employed freight broker can earn annual income in the six-figure range (over $100,000 USD).
