Broker or Shipper Carrier Agreement - This is
an agreement between a shipper and transportation provider.
The transportation provider can be either a freight broker
or truckload carrier. It states specifically who is responsible
for what and makes sure everyone is clear about payment terms
and payment procedures. This is a good document to have in
place in case there are any disputes.
make sure everyone is one the same page and when an issue
happens and if it gets ugly you are going to be glad you had
these in place. Also make sure to save your email and take
notes and write down times when information is being exchanged.
It can be a pain sometimes but usually the one with the best
notes wins the argument.
