We immediately sent this information to our entire email list of thousands of manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and suppliers.

What’s Shipping? Freightera Source Locally Community Update

What to do if it’s not what your business ships?

Based on what’s shipping at Freightera, we still see broader demand for many items. But with the usual sources and supply chains disrupted, it’s harder now to source products you need.

The Freightera Source Locally Community will allow you to see what’s currently being shipped by members and who is still open for business, so interested parties can buy and sell from each other. We expect to release it next week. To be featured, please email us at sourcelocally@freightera.com. Let us know which of your facilities are still open, your current hours of operation, and the top 3-5 products you have available.

Let us know if we can help you ship your supplies anywhere in Canada and the USA. We’ve brought online hundreds of reliable LTL carriers. Ask Freightera Care any questions. Check our rates and book online.

I hope you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe. Keep your entrepreneurial spirit alive. We are here to help with your shipping needs and to connect and reconnect with like-minded people and businesses. 

Warmest regards,

Eric Beckwitt, CEO on behalf of the Freightera Team
