Freight brokers either earn an annual salary or work on commission basis. Their income varies based on the firm they work for, the benefits they derive and the experience they possess. The average yearly pay of a freight broker is $40,000. However, there are freight brokers who make more than the average salary by having freight agents working for them. A freight broker is an individual or business serving as a liaison between individual and company that requires an authorized motor carrier or shipping service. Nevertheless, a freight broker necessarily does not act as a shipper or carrier himself. The main job of a freight broker is to identify the requirements of a carrier and link that with that of a carrier to enable transportation of the shipper products at a fair price.
