That's the most simplistic way to explain it, at least the way I understand it....I do know sometimes it's not quite that cut and dried and there are several "middle men". If a broker for a large corporation (Tyson, etc) is overwhelmed with orders and/or doesn't have the trucks to cover his needs, they do farm things out to 3rd and sometimes 4th parties. But by this time, the freight rate has been eaten away & isn't worth hauling.
