History[edit]

James Brosious founded American Freight Companies, the parent company to FreightCenter, in September 1998.[1] Over the course of four years, James and his son Matthew Brosious cultivated relationships with national and regional freight carriers and developed the website FreightCenter.com.[2]

In 2010, FreightCenter partnered with Go Daddy.com, LLC to integrate its API technology with Go Daddy's Quick Shopping Cart application. This technology gives Go Daddy customers the ability to calculate the cost of shipping freight and then display a price during the checkout process. The FreightCenter API can be integrated with any online shopping cart.

Since its inception in 1998, FreightCenter has helped customer book more than one million freight shipments throughout North America.[3]
