Shipping expertise comes into play when it’s time to improve your operations, learn how to save money on shipping, and learn the best way to ship your products to your customers.

Efficiently Prepare your Shipments

There’s a right and wrong way to prepare your shipments. The way shipments are prepared and shipped vary based on the type of product, the size, and the number of items you are shipping. If you have fragile or temperature-sensitive items, for example, you’ll need to wrap your items and pack them for crates or pallets a certain way.

As a leading freight service provider, we offer years of experience in how to pack and prepare products for freight shipments. We can help you determine the right way to prepare and pack your products so that your customers are satisfied every single time. This advice comes free and available to you in a variety of online resources and via phone.

Stay on Top of Shipping Laws and Regulations

In our e-book, we share that shipping is a “dynamic industry.” It’s always been this way, and now because of the coronavirus, new rules and regulations are popping up daily. We understand that it’s hard to keep up with transportation rules. However, not keeping up with these rules can result in a variety of mistakes. These mistakes can cost your company a lot of money.

At Freightquote, we not only keep up with the transportation industry, but we also manage the entire process. This means we can help you with any aspect of the process, from making a claim, managing carrier contracts, checking DOT safety ratings, and verifying insurance certificates.

Unbiased Freight Shipping Advice

Not all freight service providers can provide unbiased advice. Why? Because they have trucks of their own and have a financial interest in certain carriers. We are an independent freight service provider that can provide your company with unbiased advice and recommendations that are ideal for your business.
