Most shipping managers don’t realize that they are overpaying for their transportation and spending too much time obtaining quotes from carriers. Going to their individual carrier websites for quotes is very time consuming. Finding the best rate for your parcel and freight carriers can be a big challenge, knowing charges upfront during order capture or booking will help you consistently select the best shipping service. The freight rating feature included with ShipConsole also reduces your transportation shipping costs significantly.

A shipper is able to see top 10 carrier options in ShipConsole dashboard to make smarter decisions. Multiple carriers will be displayed for shipments depending on business rules that are applied so you can compare options and select the best one for you.
