Finding the best LTL rates with Freightquote's Volume API technology.
May 23, 2017
Finding and comparing LTL rates can be one of the most time-consuming and frustrating challenges facing small business owners. But, with our Volume API technology, the shipping process can be simplified and the best available rates can be acquired.
Leveraging technology to obtain quotes for volume shipments.
Less than truckload shipping (LTL) is one of the most common methods for freight shippers to use when transporting freight. But, before the arrival of solutions like Volume API, the technology and tools needed to get a quote on that type of volume shipping were lacking.
In fact, obtaining volume rates for LTL shipments previously required calling individual carriers with the specs for each order, taking up valuable employee time and providing a less than ideal experience for the customer.
Solutions like our Volume API change that, allowing customers to easily compare LTL quotes from the nation’s best contract carriers in real-time, with guaranteed rates and timely deliveries.
Ease the shipping logistics burden with help from the pros.
Freightquote obtains hundreds of volume quotes each day for its customers, so we know it works. Using Volume API, Freightquote has retrieved more than 40,000 volume quotes automatically and increased the rate of converting quotes into booked shipments by ~30%. As a result, businesses can devote more time to focus on their core offerings.
“With our new technology and collaboration with a few select carriers, we can now retrieve volume rates with the click of a button,” said Nick Osbern, a senior procurement manager at Freightquote. “We save time for our sales force and our contracted-carrier’s customer service teams, all while dramatically improving the customer experience and allowing them to book their loads faster.”
