In the business of logistics, a freight broker is the communications link who ensures freight moves smoothly between carriers and shippers, arriving safely - and on time.

Starting in January, UTC’s Center for Professional Education will partner with logistics firms here in Chattanooga to offer a Freight Broker Professional Program.

An open house is set for Tuesday, December 6th on campus.

John Freeze is CPE’s director.

Mike Beckwith is director of sales at BlueGrace Logistics, one of the firm’s participating in the program.
