Brokerage Services

Although many shippers have contracts with trucking companies to transport their goods, a significant amount of truck transport in North America is handled by freight brokers. A freight broker is an intermediary between a shipper who has goods to transport and a carrier who has capacity to move that freight.

Four Star Services specializes in flatbed, dry van and reefer freight in all 48 states and Canada. If we commit to your shipment, we will do whatever it takes to make sure it gets moved on time. We regularly take on large projects that asset companies could not provide enough capacity for. If you tender your freight to Four Star, you can rest easy knowing that your shipment is taken care of.
