“It was kind of overwhelming when I first came over to Trinity as an Authorized Agent. I didn’t know what to expect and I was a little bit intimidated to when I would talk on the phone with anyone from Corporate. But then I met Ms. Karen who put my mind at ease.
We would talk about any problems I was facing and she would help me find a way to solve it. Early on, Ms. Karen told me about the other people on the Agent Support Team and how they all get down to business. Soon enough, I was able to meet all of them over the phone. They are all so cool and down to earth but also take their roles seriously.
Finally, when we were able to meet in-person at an Agent Conference in Arizona. They weren’t any different! They are the most caring and loving people. Their personalities matched to exactly what I was used to hearing over the phone. A very awesome group of people that really want you to succeed in your business. They’re also good for a laugh; one of them called me by the wrong name but we won’t say who! It’s now a standing joke. The Agent Support Team is incredible. These ladies and gentlemen do their job and they do it with GREATNESS! I love all of them. They are so great to work with.”

Have you ever wondered what a freight broker is, what they do, why they exist? To put it in simple terms, freight brokers are simply matchmakers. They are the middle-man between the shipper (the maker or owner of the product) and the trucking company that moves the freight. Freight brokers perform a valuable service for both ends of the spectrum, however they do not function as an actual carrier, they arrange for the transport of goods.
As Americans look hopefully to the future, battle weary from the recession, companies are seeking ways to find cost savings in order to combat the erosion of profit margins. More and more, companies are dissecting their expense reports in order to discover hidden profits within their logistics expense. One method being employed to trim the amounts spent along the supply chain is to build a relationship with a freight broker, commonly referred to as “3PL”, or “Third-Party Logistics” suppliers.
With today’s fuel prices, industry-wide capacity crunch, and steadily increasing safety regulations, it’s no wonder many shippers are beginning to feel a sense of fright, or dread, when gathering freight rates. It’s important to look beneath the surface of actual cargo shipping charges when estimating your total shipping costs.
