What does being an Independent Freight Agent with Trinity Logistics mean? We are so glad that you asked! Trinity Logistics is a leading name in the freight broker community, and a big part of our growth is due to successful partnerships with Independent Freight Agents.
An Independent Freight Agent is someone who partners with a third party logistics company and uses their brokerage license so they can arrange transportation of freight and utilize the support services of that company. The Agent owns their own business and gets to focus on the part of the business that they do well (move freight) while Trinity Logistics, in our case, supports them through back office applications such as billing of customers, paying carriers, etc. Being a Freight Agent really is the best of both worlds for an entrepreneur! If you are a freight broker, you are certainly aware of the expenses that are associated with the business, not to mention one of your most valuable assets – your time – that often times gets overwhelmed with handling the non-revenue generating activities. This is a primary reason freight brokers look to partner with a 3PL like Trinity Logistics.
There are a number of companies that a Freight Agent could partner with, but what sets us apart from many others are all of the “extras” that come with being an Agent for Trinity. We take those “extras” very seriously!
This Agent testimonial says it all: “Whether training on new Trinity technology, answering a billing or claims question, or offering advice on a customer – they help handle it directly. Each team member is a pleasure to work with and their positive outlook always leaves me smiling.” – Lyn, Maryland
