You then add your parcel carrier similarly to how you added your LTL carriers. Select UPS or FedEx, and click the green checkmark to indicate Parcel.
Once your carrier is connected, you’ll click the same Quote icon to get started, but now the Parcel option is available.
Your screen will refresh to the Parcel format; fill out your quote data accordingly.
- If you choose “Daily pickup” a dispatch will NOT be sent to the carrier.
- Choosing “Schedule a pickup” will do exactly as it says once the shipment is completed.
You will also have access to your Product Catalog and Quote Preferences, which we will keep separately under LTL or Parcel. (Product Catatlog)
Once your quote form is filled out, click Show my rates →
Your Rates Page will load the same as your LTL, with your options auto-sorting by price and with tools such as Rate Breakdown.
Once you choose a rate, it's on the booking page.
This should look pretty familiar, but if you choose a rate with FedEx, you have the additional options for FedEx ShipAlert® notifications.
And finally, the last optional field is the ability to share your shipment. You can enter the email address of whomever you want to share labels and tracking information.
You will choose who you are billing, service level, pickup date, account to be billed to, and billing postal code. Select Book this shipment to complete the load, create labels, etc.
It is important to note that while this shipment’s information will be sent to the carrier, a pickup will not be scheduled. Currently, 3rd party and recipient billed parcel shipments in Freightview can only be made when selecting the “Daily pickup” option on the quote screen.
