Hire a Freight Broker

 

The work of freight brokers is unique in the sense that they act as a liaison between shippers and carriers. Through careful analysis and organization, freight brokers match shippers to carriers to ensure that cargo is safely transported from the point of origin to its final destination. Whether the mode of transport is by sea, air, or land transport, they are responsible for making sure that the goods are safe and sound. They are the matchmakers of the logistics industry. 

 

The hunt for an effective freight broker begins with an intake with the hiring company. Recruitment managers initially gain clarity and learn about job specifications, expectations, and requirements. All this information is essential in drafting a job description. While it may seem typical for hiring managers to create a job description, it is a reliable tool for job seekers to gauge their readiness and encourage them to apply for the job vacancy. 

 

In attracting the ideal candidate, hiring managers need to put their thinking cap on and approach the job description as a job seeker would. What will make a lasting impression? What keywords will stand out? Will the content of the job description be engaging and catchy? These are some things that hiring managers must keep in mind.  

 

Responsibilities of a Freight Broker

 

Freight brokers may not necessarily handle the cargo themselves. Even so, they are accountable for its safe transport from the shipper, carrier, and to the destination or consignee. Before each transaction, freight brokers review and prepare all necessary documents, reports, registration, and licenses needed for smooth delivery. They carefully select carriers to connect with shippers for freight services. Freight brokers are responsible for negotiating rates, terms, conditions, and settling everything. They work with both parties to arrive at an agreement approved by all involved. 

 

During transport, freight brokers are in charge of monitoring load movement each step of the way. They stay in constant communication with shippers and carriers to know if the shipment is in transit as planned. As problems and gaps may arise at any point, freight brokers manage each one accordingly and troubleshoot problems as needed. They keep consignees updated and answer their inquiries. 

 

Freight brokers confirm delivery with drivers and consignees and record all transactions for reference. Lastly, freight brokers build their network by connecting with new clients, prospects, companies, and carriers. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Freight Broker

 

For interested candidates, a high school diploma or GED is required. Further study in a training school for freight brokers is an advantage. For work background, employers typically require previous work experience in a similar role. 

The ideal candidate for a freight broker is an individual who is highly organized and able to keep calm amidst a fast-moving industry. Because there can be several orders and transactions going on simultaneously, candidates must be meticulous with keen attention to detail. Freight brokers deal with concerns and issues that may arise, and effective problem solving and analytical thinking are necessary. Additionally, candidates must have the ability to engage with people well. Effective listening, communication, and interpersonal skills will go a long way. 

To be successful as a freight broker, other qualifications include computer proficiency and time management skills. Candidates need to be familiar with various computer applications and software which will make documentation, records keeping, and management more streamlined.
