How Freightera Helps Manufacturers Ship Cargo Across the USA and Canada

Whether you manufacture steel structures, machinery, engines, auto parts, electrical or electronic equipment, paper or plastic products, furniture, food, cosmetics, or pretty much anything, we’ve got you covered! And seeing that the USA and Canada are each other’s largest trading partners, we’re happy to say that no matter if you’re shipping your product domestically or cross-border, we have the shipping solution for you.

Since Freightera was founded, we’ve worked with numerous manufacturers within the USA and Canada alike. 

Among the top ten produced items in Canada are aluminum, wheat, and vehicle parts, all of which are among our commonly transported products. Any and all of these commodities (among others) can be shipped via LTL, FTL, or container with Freightera. 

Aside from the fact that we offer multiple carrier choices for any given lane within the USA, Canada, or cross-border, we also fill out the shipping documentation for you automatically, save your previous quotes for easy access and promote lower-emission carriers which are usually more affordable too.

Automated Bill of Lading

During the booking process, our system smartly saves all of your information and enters it onto the BOL. This removes the ordeal of having to fill it out yourself thus saving both time and energy.

Easy Quoting and Easier Requoting

Whenever you get a quote you use your valuable time to enter the shipment information and no matter how often you ship this can be a nuisance either because you constantly have to do it or because you constantly need to re-check the information on hand.

That’s exactly what our features such as “Quotes and Favorites” or the “Address Book” make as easy as a few clicks.

Our system, once again, smartly saves all of this information for you so in case you need to get a new quote for the same shipment or for one going to/from the same locations you’ll have it saved in a simple dropdown bar which will allow you to get a quote in just a few clicks total.

Lower emissions & better pricing

Freightera is partnered with SmartWay which allows us to track which carriers provide services with reduced emissions compared to the industry standard. These might be road carriers with newer or improved engines or rail carriers that provide the same services for less money. This allows for both green shipping and, in most cases, reduced costs.

To recap, with Freightera you can expect the following:


  • Reliable LTL service
  • Reliable FTL service
  • Reliable container shipping
  • Instant quotes and bookings
  • Fully filled-out BOL at the time of booking
  • Top-notch customer service experience throughout the whole process
