When e-commerce first boomed, both major companies and small businesses shifted to support online sales. While the large companies already had infrastructure in place for e-commerce, many small businesses learned the hard way that freight and shipping logistics required focus in a successful online operation.

Luckily, the Freightquote® shipping tool provides millions of small businesses with access to our powerful free quoting tool. This revolutionary small business shipping tool offers a lowest price guarantee, making it easy for small businesses to save money and time on shipping.
