Based in Ohio, 360 Transport is a freight broker. Freight brokers are key players in the transportation industry that serve as the bridge between their customers (shippers) and their carriers (trucks). Asset-based brokerages send their own fleets on the road for cargo pick-up and delivery. Non-asset-based brokerages contract with qualified motor carriers to use their trucks and trailers to move goods. Freight brokers negotiate the prices and rates per mile and receive commissions from the shippers on the loads delivered. As a freight broker, 360 Transport works to help shippers have their freight delivered at the best prices and also works to ensure that motor carriers receive fair rates to help them stay profitable.
