About Freightquote by C.H. Robinson

From the start, everything we've done has centered on solving customer problems through technology.

Established to simplify freight shipping.

Freightquote was founded to create a better way for people and businesses to ship freight. There were countless carriers to choose from, but there was no way to compare them side by side. That meant you had to either spend hours online or on the phone, comparing rates and carriers, or just book with one carrier and hope you chose the best possible option.

We were the first to solve this dilemma by developing our own patented technology. It disrupted the freight industry and forever changed how people and businesses ship freight.

Today, we’ve quoted more than 50 million shipments, delivering to virtually every corner of North America.

We can serve multitudes of customers and still maintain the highest standards of service because we’ve committed, from the start, to integrating technology and powerful data analytics into everything we do. From the backend that gathers and organizes quotes to the self-service online tools that give you all the information you need to manage freight like a pro, our business is designed to serve yours.

Watch below to see how our online self-serve shipping experience streamlines processes. This technology is built with small business customers in mind, making shipping even easier. 


We give you patented technology at your fingertips, years of experience and a contract carrier network you know you can trust.


Service that never stops. 

Freight shipping service

Technology alone can’t solve every problem. That’s why we also have highly trained shipping experts who are ready to answer any question, at any time – this experienced team is the primary reason we are able to maintain our A+ Better Business Bureau rating year after year.

So whether you’re an experienced or novice shipper, we have the tools and experts to help you plan and execute complex or simple shipping solutions. The service our technology and people make possible gained the attention of global 3PL powerhouse, C.H. Robinson. Since that relationship began, the combination of C.H. Robinson’s experience and network has been a perfect fit with Freightquote’s nimble, technology-driven culture.

We pioneered the industry as the first service provider to bring the power of accessing a multiple carrier network to individuals and businesses. So when you join our team, you are becoming part of an entrepreneurial, fast-paced company. We’ve been able to stay true to our roots by keeping the same standards we set in the beginning – solve problems for our customers with our people, data and technology and celebrate success.

Every employee at Freightquote contributes to customer service and problem-solving. Our team-oriented culture means that we constantly bounce ideas off each other. We are a place that thrives on constant interaction and depends on communication to be at our best.

Our energy and excitement extends beyond our walls, too. The same people that power Freightquote put their time and effort into improving the communities in which we live and work.

Customer service also extends to the communities in which we live and work. Freightquote employees can be seen engaging in both internal and external charitable events, participating in corporate challenge games, fundraising for their favorite causes or lending a hand to community projects. We encourage giving back and this spirit is ingrained in our culture.
