Why Choose Freightera Over Traditional Brokers or Carriers?

When it comes to freight shipping, your business has a lot of options: you could contact individual carriers for rates on all of your lanes, you could hire a freight broker to handle all your freight, you could use a third-party logistics company (3PL), or even a freight forwarder.

Your choices might be plenty, but your time is limited!

Instead of going from store to store to buy each product you need, why not simply stop by a marketplace and get it all-in-one place?

That’s precisely what Freightera’s Freight Marketplace is – a one-stop shop for shipping freight.

As a business owner or employee in charge of shipping, fulfillment, and distribution, you want to spend as little time as possible scheduling pickups and deliveries, tracking your freight, figuring the documentation out, and making sure the whole process goes smoothly (and if it doesn’t ⁠— solving the problem in the most efficient way).

We exist to make your life easier and handle all your shipping needs so you could focus on other stuff that matters to your business. You don’t need to play phone tag with brokers and carriers, and you don’t need to wonder whether they cover your lanes or not, and you don’t need to worry: we’ve got your back!

Simply enter your shipping information on our quoting page and click “Get a Quote” and our system will search billions of lanes across the US and Canada, cross-border USA to Canada, and Canada to the USA, and provide you with a list of quotes which you can sort based on different criteria based on your needs such as the price, emissions-reduction, speed, or service quality, among others.

Our 24/7 quoting system is intuitive and user-friendly, your shipping documentation is automatically generated online, and you can see and track all your shipments online, all in one place

Last but not least, our 5-star Client Care team is available to you via chat, phone, or email whenever you need assistance, and we’re not exaggerating when we say that our customer service is unsurpassed in the freight shipping industry.

These are the reasons thousands of distributors, manufacturers, wholesalers, and other businesses choose Freightera’s Freight Shipping Marketplace to handle all their LTL, FTL, flatbed, and heavy haul shipping. With us, you ship with peace of mind

Benefits of our Service

A smart system with everything in one place

We’re fully automated: all of your labels, billing, payments, and orders are available in your online account.

Save more money. Carriers and brokers would not have the best price information on all of your shipping routes. If you ship to multiple destinations, Freightera will always be more competitive at the end of the day.

Save more time. It would take carriers and brokers hours to days to return a quote to you via email or phone call. With Freightera quotes are automatic and take seconds to load on your computer screen once you’ve entered all of your shipment information.

Everything in one place. If you use multiple carriers based on where or when you’re shipping, you probably have trouble keeping up with the documentation or remembering who the best person to contact at any given time is. That’s why at Freightera we pride ourselves on keeping everything in one place for you. From BOLs, shipping history, invoices, carrier information.

Rate Defense™

No surprises. Your quotes are all-inclusive as long as your information is correct. No games.

If you’re a frequent shipper, you’ve probably been in a situation where an additional charge finds its way to you days, weeks, or even months after your shipment has been delivered.

With Freightera, you can say goodbye to that hassle. Our team works diligently to make sure that no unfair surprise charges are added or passed on to you.

Value-added services are your choice or a necessity and it’s only fair that you pay for what you need. But unfair charges for unwanted services or unwarranted rate increases are a thing of the past when you use Freightera. Real 5-star service

Get better support. It’s tough to be a profitable carrier these days and their customer services are either understaffed or non-existent in small companies. Freightera Client Care team honestly strives to be the industry’s best. You are in good hands with us, and here’s why:

Our team is comprised of ambitious, highly motivated people who give their 100% to making sure you receive the best service possible.Everyone says that, so what? Right? Not quite. Everyone in our company is a shareholder which means that every single person is personally invested in making sure the service surpasses your expectations. That means that whatever is in our power to do right — will be done right.

Not one, not tens, but hundreds of carriers at your fingertips

Get the best coverage. If you use a carrier, you’ll get good rates for the lanes they cover. If you use a freight forwarder, you’ll get the best prices and coverage they can offer with their limited pool of carriers. 

Our system is self-sufficient. It costs carriers nothing to use and maintain their account with us. That means that we have a very large pool of carriers who cover the entirety of North America at the best possible prices.

The collective volume we move also gives us the buying power to offer you better rates than you’d get if you went to the carrier directly or if you used a (however experienced) freight broker. 
Negotiate your prices based on volume shipping. We realize that the customer experience is important. If you move tens of thousands of lbs of freight per month, you expect better rates than if you were moving a few pallets here and there. We hear you, and it makes sense to us too! That’s why we are open to negotiating prices based on your shipping volume and tweaking our system so that you can get the best prices out there in just a few clicks! No hassle!

Giving you a choice

We are environmentally friendly. Our mission is to make freight shipping easy, accessible, and green. Along with the best prices, most of our carriers have reduced emissions compared to the industry standard.

With that said, we realize that your main priority is to make your business thrive. That’s why we give you the option to sort your freight quotes by price, reliability, speed, emissions reduction, etc. 

So along with giving you a choice, we try to make sure that the best price is also the best option for the environment too. That’s why you can keep your business at the top of the list and feel twice as good while doing so!

Still not convinced? Chat with our super-friendly agents, write to us at [email protected], or call us at (800) 886-4870 Ext. 1 to schedule a free consultation. We’re confident that you’ll end up choosing us, just like thousands of companies already have.
