Yes we have the best web portal for freight shippers available today. It is called Carrierrate 2.0. With this system you can get quotes, book shipments, print bills of lading, pay online and much more!!
We currently have over 100 LTL carriers in the system. This made up of national carriers, regional carriers, asset light carriers, consolidators and pallet carriers. Carriers will be displayed based on price (low to high) with options to sort based on transit time, performance and liability. We also have thousands of truckload carriers.
No problem! You will have full access to the carrier. The contact information for both the origin and destination terminal are displayed on the quote screen, booking screen, bol screen and on the bill of lading itself.
Yes! After booking a shipment, the system will generate a bill of lading. It will also generate packing labels. Both bills of lading and labels can be printed or emailed from within the system.
Carrierrate 2.0 is completely free.
The carrier will invoice us and then we will invoice you.
Yes! If you currently have carrier tariffs in place we can upload those into the system. Our rates with those carriers will be blocked. When quoting you will see your carrier rates along with our rates for other carriers competing for that lane. If a load is booked with your carrier rate, the carrier will invoice you directly as they do today.
