Des Moines Truck Brokers is one of the first 50 licensed freight brokers in the United States.  For over 4 decades we’ve been hard at work for our customers while the number of brokerages has exploded to over 12,000.  Our customers tell us that its our experience in the field that sets us apart from the rest.  But, our experience tells us that there are several things we do well that set us apart from the competition.  Our business partners have come to expect the following from DMTB and you can too.


This is by far the most important.  If you have ever experienced bad communication you know how it can turn small problems into very big problems.  We require daily contact with all of our carrier partners and we refuse to be out of touch on any load.  Whether its to let you know of a potential problem or notify you that the load has been delivered- you can rest assured that we have the details for you.


Can you rely on your transportation provider to follow through on their commitment?  We stand behind our word and we’ll do what it takes to get the job done.  We have customers that have been with us for more than 40 years and even more rapidly approaching that milestone.  If we weren’t reliable, those relationships would’ve never existed in the first place.


Since 1969, Des Moines Truck Brokers has served customers in the fresh, frozen, and dry commodity industries.  Additionally, we have experience in the manufacturing and dry freight arena.  With 12 CTB’s (Certified Transportation Brokers) on staff, DMTB has the largest concentration of TIA-certified transportation specialists in the state of Iowa.  With an average of 14 years experience in the field, each member of our operations staff has the knowledge and expertise to get your freight delivered safely.


Do your transportation requirements ever change without much notice?  At DMTB, we understand that today’s business breeds change.  We are capable of adjusting to our customer’s changing needs.  Whether its an added pick-up or drop en route or a last minute load that has to move- we will work with our carriers to make it happen.
