Freight Broker Bond

Surety Bonds for Freight Broker Bonds

What are Freight Broker Bonds?

A freight broker bond is required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in order for any transportation broker to get a license in the United States.  It helps to prevent fraud and guarantees that payments to motor carriers and shippers are made in a timely manner.  By obtaining this bond, it demonstrates the sound financial backing of the freight broker.  In the case that a broker cannot fulfill their contractual obligations as laid out in the freight broker bond, a claim can be filed against them.

The annual premium for a freight broker bond can range from under $2,000 to $9,000.  The premium is determined by the broker’s financial strength and personal credit history.  An applicant can apply for a freight broker surety bond before they receive their Motor Carrier Number.
