Small Business Saturday: How Freightquote Stands for Small Businesses

2020 has been a difficult year for small businesses. Between an ongoing pandemic and the usual fractured attention span of news organizations during an election year, small businesses struggle to stay in the headlines. But just because small businesses haven't been in the news doesn't mean they haven’t been on our minds.

At Freightquote, we stand on the side of small business. Before we emerged into the world of shipping and logistics, we asked ourselves how we could make shipping freight for small businesses as easy as it is for big businesses. Since then, we've helped thousands of small businesses and their owners save money and time on shipping and logistics. Ultimately giving them more time to be a part of their community, drive sales, and better serve customers.

So this Small Business Saturday, we stand up for small businesses, and we stand with other organizations that recognize their importance. To help your small business as it moves into the holiday season and the final days of the year, we've assembled a list of ways that Freightquote can help you have a successful holiday season and a revitalizing 2021.

How Freightquote Saves Small Businesses Time and Money

As a small business owner, you've heard it all. From companies promising that their marketing trick is the one that will save you time and money, to web developers who promise impossible results. But you don't need to worry about any of those things when you work with Freightquote, just ask our customers! If you're looking for help this holiday season, here are a few of the ways that Freightquote reliably saves small businesses time and money:

Simplifying Shipping through Technology

Our company was built to develop a better way to ship freight, plain and simple. Early in our company's life, we realized that major companies could quickly weigh the pros and cons of carriers by using their large network of contacts. But no tools helped small businesses do the same. We developed our free quoting tool to help you save time and money no matter the size of the shipment. Using this tool in conjunction with other Freightquote services cuts down on costs and frees you up to focus on customers.

Low Price Guarantee

Our Lowest Price Guarantee ensures that small businesses receive hassle free shipping at the lowest prices available. If you find a better price, we'll match it and add on a 10% discount to your order. We even add a promo code for $50 off your next freight shipment. If you want to find the best prices on the market quickly, Freightquote has the convenient quoting services and price-guarantees that you need.


We know that running a small business can be an "all hands on-deck" operation. Sometimes, that doesn't leave enough people to handle shipping tasks. If you're running short on helping hands, Freightquote has the solution you need. We've partnered with TaskRabbit, a reliable service that provides independent contractors known as "taskers," to help with various shipping projects. The service connects our customers with shipping professionals who are ready to help with dozens of tasks, including packaging and shipment pickup.

The Networks and Services of C.H. Robinson

Looking at the way big businesses handled shipping, it was clear that there were benefits to the infrastructure they had built. When we were acquired by C.H. Robinson in 2015, we gained access to that robust infrastructure. Now, the services that we provide as Freightquote pull from the very same networks and services that C.H. Robinson uses to help some of the world's largest companies achieve success in logistics.

Tireless Dedication to Customer Service

Having started out as a small business, we've never forgotten that our customers are the reason for our success. So whether you're a local hardware store or the biggest bookstore in town, you'll receive the same stellar service that has earned and maintained an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. We provide the tools you'll need to succeed as a small business in today's world. And if you ever have any questions, you're just a call away from shipping experts who pride themselves on helping small businesses overcome logistics challenges.
