Auto Transport Broker Directory

Why Does The Auto Transport Industry Use Brokers?

In the auto transport industry, there are two main types of businesses that you will encounter as a customer: brokers and carriers. A carrier is the company that owns the trucks and handles the loading, delivery, and unloading of the vehicle. Brokers contract with carriers in order to connect them to customers that are seeking the services that they offer.

This arrangement exists mainly to compartmentalize the process so that the companies operating the carriers don’t have to worry about dedicating time and resources to finding customers. (Many auto transporters operate with minimal staff and just a couple carriers.) At the same time, brokers can focus solely on matching a customer’s service and price request with a carrier that offers a specific service at a particular price.

Carriers and customers both benefit from brokerages since they allow transporters to find customers and fill their trucks to minimize shipping costs, which in turn makes their services less expensive for the customer. By contrast, if a customer were to seek out a carrier directly, he or she would be limited to only the services and pricing packages that they offer along particular delivery routes.
