With Freightquote by C.H. Robinson, receiving an instant shipping quote is easy. You can avoid costly fees with accurate quotes based on precise shipment details—not estimates.

Be sure to use exact dimensions and weight measurements that include all packaging. If your shipment weighs more or takes up more space than the carrier expects, your actual shipping costs will be higher than quoted.

Type of location—and truck access—can play a big role in your quote. Knowing these details ahead of time helps Freightquote match you with the right carriers and equipment.

With all your information at hand, quoting and booking is simple. Give the driver your Freightquote bill of lading at pickup. We provide this when you order. The BOL confirms services, delivery location, and billing information, saving you from unnecessary hassle and fees.
