Logistics and the terminology freight brokers are the same. Freight brokers act as intermediaries by arranging for the transportation of cargo between shippers and motor carriers. The freight broker then receives a commission for his service. The industry of freight brokering is very simple for a person who can multi-task efficiently. The broker simply finds a reputable motor carrier who will transport the cargo according to the requirements set forth by the shipper.
Transportation brokers utilize shipper and carrier databases, and other technological resources to locate those that will benefit from their services. Several companies find the services provided by freight brokers indispensable. In fact, some companies hire freight brokers to coordinate all their shipping needs. Many freight brokers gain experience in the industry by working for a shipper or carrier as a freight agent. In this way, an aspiring broker can learn knowledge of the industry, as well as establish a network of business contacts.

Rates tend to be good year- round for this type of freight because it is not a seasonal product.
There are many different freight and equipment types involved. The equipment you select will depend on the freight type transported. Even though almost every type of trailer will have the ability of transporting most freight types, certain trailers will be able to transport it more economically.
Overweight – Over Dimensional Freight
The legal dimensions and weights vary between countries and regions within a country. A vehicle, which exceeds the legal dimensions usually, requires a special permit, which requires extra fees to be paid in order for the oversize/overweight vehicle to legally travel on the roadways. The permit usually specifies a route the load must follow as well as the dates and times during which the load may travel.
An oversize load (or overweight load) is a load that exceeds the standard or ordinary legal size and/or weight limits for a specified portion of road, highway or other transport infrastructure, such as airfreight or water freight. There are also load per axle limits. However, a load that exceeds the per-axle limits, but not the overall weight limits is not overweight.
