WHAT IS A GOOD RATE?

Whether comparing spot quotes or evaluating contract bids, it’s hard to know if you’re getting a good rate. Without the right data, all you have to go on are past experience and gut instinct. Both are valuable, but neither is sufficient when you’re trying to decide which carrier to use. To get the best rate, you need to know what others are paying and where the market is headed.


MARKET TRANSPARENCY

RateFriend gives you a clear and accurate picture of market rates, the information you can use to drive down transportation costs. Compare existing contracts with spot-market rates. Identify carriers that may be overpriced. Find the most cost-effective mode for any shipment. Quote rates with confidence.
