Develop a Request for Quotation (RFQ) form to simplify the process of securing rates

Get an edge on the competition by getting the most out of your rate quotations.  By standardizing the process, you can control the quality of work and make the review of the rates easier.

  • Add detailed information (e.g. full commodity description, dangerous goods details, special handling requirements, facility characteristics, etc.) to make every quotation more accurate and competitive.
  • Indicate shipment frequency and annual volume to qualify for savings tied to volumes.
    A proper RFQ makes it much easier to compare “apples to apples” when sourcing quotes from various carriers.
