How To Manage Customer Routed Shipments

Did you know you can still use Freightview for the shipments you’re routing but not paying for? Whether the shipment is billed collect or third party to someone else you can route those on the Freightview platform.

You will want to use the customer routed shipment tool. To access this, click the down carrot next to quote on your top toolbar.

This will take you to a screen that looks very similar to the booking page that you’re used to. However, at the top of the screen there will be a place for you to select your carrier.

Since you aren’t paying for the freight using your account, you won’t be running an actual rate.

Once you choose your carrier, you’ll have a few more boxes to fill out.

Choose your service, pickup date, and even include the account number of the bill-to party if you have it. But don't worry if you don’t-- that field isn’t mandatory.

You’ll fill out the rest of the info for your BOL as normal. When you reach the bottom of the page you can choose the bill-to information.

It’s that easy to manage your customer routed shipments within Freightview.
