Freight brokers and Silicon Chips
The freight broker industry acts as the middleman in the shipping sector. They are also known third-party transport providers. Freight brokers connect customers with trucking companies and shippers. They are indispensable in moving goods around the country, as there are hundreds of shippers providing thousands of different services. With one-stop shop, the freight brokers make it easy for you to find a shipper.
The Silicon chip industry is a rapidly expanding industry that has played a significant role in the rapid growth of the Internet. Silicon chips are the basis of all types of computers as well as hand held devices such as cell phones, PDAs, even watches and some household appliances.
SFB will be the sole agent for the shipment and management of silicon chips. Silicon chips are an unusual cargo that requires special attention. The chips require a narrow range of temperatures and humidity that must be maintained. Other than these unique requirements, silicon chip companies also have other needs. SFB will soon be the leading broker of chips and gain market share by focusing on silicon chips.
Two distinct customers comprise the chip industry: purchasers and manufacturers. Although the manufacturers are located in the USA, some produce in the USA while others outsource production to overseas countries and then import them. The chip purchasers are primarily Intel, IBM, and Motorola.
SFB is managed and led by Steve Tookarefol. Steve has over 10 years’ experience working in freight for different companies. Steve’s work experience is what allowed him to pinpoint the market needs and then meet them. SFB has coupled Steve’s in-depth trucking/ freight brokerage knowledge and insight with his wife’s expertise in the silicon chip industry. Wendy has been working with Intel and other companies for the last seven year as an industry consultant.
SFB’â€™s solid business model is projected to reach profitability by the sixth month. SFB will penetrate the market by remaining laser-focused in their market niche and fully utilizing their management team.
