When you’re running a business, every minute is valuable. That's why at Freightquote® by C.H. Robinson, we've committed ourselves to streamline the shipping process, particularly for small businesses. Because let’s face it – shipping can be a hassle. But it doesn’t have to be.

Freightquote and Small Business Saturday

We believe small businesses are the backbone of our economy. That’s why Freightquote is excited to celebrate Small Business Saturday (SBS) this November and show support for the entrepreneurs who work hard all year round.

Freightquote understands that navigating the ups and downs of last few years has been challenging for many. When we show support and increase awareness on Small Business Saturday (and every day) we are honored to be a part of small businesses like yours’ continued success stories.

How Freightquote Simplifies Small Business Shipping

With the needs of small businesses in mind, the Freightquote dedicated team has developed an intuitive online tool that does the heavy lifting for you. Start by entering your shipment details, including measurements, origin and destination, and any additional services required. With just a few clicks, you can compare competitive quotes for less than truckload (LTL), full truckload, and parcel shipments, as well as book your freight, and even track shipments in real-time. No more endless phone calls or waiting for emailed quotes and paperwork—we’ve developed a user-friendly digital process that helps make shipping simple.

Freightquote also has valuable resources for small business customers, including videos and blog posts, that educate on how to streamline the shipping process and gain a competitive advantage. From decoding industry lingo to helpful guides and money-saving tips, we provide the tools small business owners need.

But our commitment doesn’t stop there. We believe in the power of community and the importance of giving back. You've heard of paying it forward. Now you can show support for other entrepreneurs by shipping it forward—and leaving the paying to Freightquote. This year, Freightquote will make a $10,000 donation to the SCORE Foundation, the philanthropic arm of SCORE, in honor of Small Business Saturday. Why? To invest in the future of small businesses, just like yours.

Ship Small, Do Good

The SCORE Foundation, the philanthropic arm of SCORE, provides budding entrepreneurs with invaluable mentorship opportunities and hands-on learning experiences. Freightquote is donating $10,000, ensuring that more entrepreneurs have the resources they need to flourish and succeed. Shipping is an integral part of business, and this November, ship it forward, and be a part of something bigger.

Together, we can create a positive ripple effect that impacts entrepreneurs across the nation.

Join us in making a difference—because when we support each other, everyone wins.
