Freight Broker Employment Outlook


Employment Outlook/Industry Trends:

In May 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that opportunities for freight brokers will grow by 29 percent in the decade leading to 2020. This is much faster than the 14 percent growth projected for other jobs in the same period. Factors contributing to growth for this sector include the increasing trend of companies to use freight arrangement services to outsource their shipping.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011, freight broker/agents reported an average annual salary of $58,000 per year.
According to indeed.com, their statistics show that job trends in transportation are up 54% from December 2012 to December 2013 – so transportation and logistics jobs are greatly on the increase. They post the average freight broker / agent salary as $76,000 (see below) (This is up from $49,000 in their 2011 figures).

I'm looking for a freight broker agent to talk to about our freight. We have a lot so it's important for us to get a good quote. Hopefully we can have it shipped for the most reasonable price.
