Double brokering is a fraudulent practice in the logistics industry where a broker accepts a load from a shipper but then subcontracts the load to another broker without the shipper’s knowledge. This can result in the load being shipped by an unreliable carrier, causing delays, damages, or even lost goods. In addition, the double broker may not pay the original broker or the carrier, causing financial losses for all parties involved.
Choosing a Reliable 3PL
To prevent double brokering, it is important to choose a reliable third-party logistics (3PL) provider. A good 3PL should have strong relationships with carriers and a proven track record of successful shipments. Look for a 3PL that is licensed, bonded, and insured, and has a clear and transparent process for load tracking and communication.
