April 2020 Newsletter

First quarter is behind us, and while things are a bit different around here, we are looking forward. We wanted to let you know what we’ve been working on since 2019 ended.

We just wanted to take a moment to remind you that we are here as a resource-- Freightview is cloud-based and mobile friendly.

We are here to help train people who aren’t as familiar with Freightview who may find themselves using the program over the coming weeks.

Our meetings look more like this these days but… we’re still working to make Freightview better and to ensure you have the customer support you are accustomed to.

We also offer UPS Surepost.

You can also build out a separate product catalog for your parcel shipments.

Booking API 

You no longer have to come back inside of Freightview to complete the booking process. Book a specific shipment, using a specific rate, in order to get a BOL back and/or place a pickup request. We hosted a webinar on our suite of APIs, which you can check out here.

Audit Only Permissions

A little over a year ago we rolled out audit functionality in Freightview. One piece of feedback we often heard was that it was a problem that only full access users had access to this tool.

You can now add audit access to any of your users on your settings page. If you’re a full access user you will still have access without needing to add this in.

We’ve added Ground with Freight Pricing with UPS, rating with Smith Cargo, Averitt Express spot volume rating, and Guaranteed by Noon rates with Old Dominion Freight Lines.

C.H. Robinson Enhancements

Booking your CHR shipments with Freightview just got better. We now pull back your pro number from CHR once it is available, which makes tracking even easier.

We also can now pull back your shipping documents--POD, signed BOL, lumper certificates, and your invoice.

Manual Quoting Enhancements 

You’ve been able to add manual quotes to your Freightview account for awhile, but now we’ve given you the ability to enter one for any carrier-- without adding them to your account.manual quoting in freightview

New Packaging Type

We have added jerricans as a packaging type-- you can now choose this for the ‘said to contain’ field.
