Get instant comparison of freight quotes 

February 2020

Finding ways to reduce freight expenses is a core responsibility of every supply chain or procurement manager.

Freight charges can differ widely between different carriers based on their pricing policies, space and equipment availability. It is wise to get several quotes for comparison to make sure you are paying a fair price in line with the market rates.

Freight rates are often subject to local charges at origin and destination. It is important that the quotes clearly states which charges are included or excluded from the rate. You will also have to understand the unit of measure and triggers for each of the surcharges as well as the associated amounts.

Sounds like a lot of work? Don’t worry – we help you with all the heavy lifting, saving you time and putting a stop to long emails and non-stop calls.
