Brokers’ gross profit per load rose 10.3% last year
 
By all measures queried in the just-released fifth annual Transcore DAT Broker Benchmark Survey, 2011 turned out to be a second positive year in a row for non-asset based brokers, broker-carriers and 3PLs alike.

“Last year was a good year for brokers– as was 2010— in terms of loads, revenues and profits,” David Schrader, senior vice president of operations for DAT told FleetOwner. “And for carriers,” he noted, “2010 also was a good year and we expect similar results for 2011 in our upcoming carrier survey.”
