WHAT IS LOGISTICS?
Look around you. Everything from your computer to the food in your stomach was shipped on a truck. Logistics is the process of moving products & food from one location to another. We aren't talking about small packages that the mailman brings. Boss goes bigger and focuses on the semi-trucks packed with products that fill up warehouses and your local grocery store. We manage everything for our customers so they can have peace of mind. It's what we do, and we do it the best.
WHAT IS A FREIGHT BROKER?
A freight broker is essentially the middle man between a customer, a trucking company, a shipper, and a receiver. Brokers operate as the a ring leader, managing all aspects of the show. Negotiating prices with your customer. Contracting/booking a trucking company to pick up and deliver your customers products -- at a lower negotiated rate. Coordinating pick-up and delivery times and appointments. Tracking shipments that are in transit. And most importantly keep your customer updated during transit, ensuring they are happy and have peace of mind. Brokers make their money on the margin - the difference in price that your customer pays you minus what you pay a truck to perform those services. Customers pay this premium to you, the broker, because you make their life easier and keep their business running smooth.
