Shipment essentials: for shippers
What’s the difference between freight forwarder, freight broker, and 3PL?
A freight forwarder offers the service of getting your goods from point A to B by arranging the entire process even if it entails multi modal and may offer warehousing particularly for the movement of cargo.
A broker, on the other hand, connects shippers and carriers and acts as an intermediary while overseeing the transfer of goods, and is usually specialized in a certain type of freight transportation.
Finally, a 3PL manages logistics needs, from moving freight to warehousing, packing, and fulfilling orders, but also offers more services to keep the supply chain moving that brokers don’t.
