Finally we’ve got a break! (Fedex vs Freightera customer’s comparison)

From time to time we are asked the question how to ship from one location to another by truck.

Those that love LTL for shipping in Canada and the US, I highly recommend a new startup named Freightera.

Long time ago, I negotiated with Fedex a 68% discount from their posted rates. That isn’t a huge achievement, since Fedex’s posted rates that they show are high to give potential clients a heart attack. For some time, I was happy with Fedex, but relationship got completely spoiled lately. It went classic “bait and switch”. They started adding all kinds of additional charges, like Inside Pickup, Fuel Surcharge, etc. and as result I paid about twice more than planned.

I could occasionally remind extra charges, but only after exhausting calls to their not very friendly support.

After switching to Freightera we ran this experiment. Two identical in weight and size packages were sent by Fedex and Freightera to identical addresses. And here are results:

Shipment to Minnesota was 33% cheaper and to Buffalo – amazing 51%! All in Canadian dollars.

Package type / Fedex Freight / Freightera / Savings

106 lb to Buffalo, NY $347.42 / $171.13  / 51%

106 lb to St Cloud, MN $357.00 / $237.67  / 33%

So, it works, tested, recommended
