Many rubber tracks companies sell on Amazon or eBay where they offer free or fixed price shipping. In order to absorb those costs, it's crucial that these shippers have access to the best rate for each individual shipment. Freightview allows users to survey transit times and guaranteed rates for any lane, all in one place. We help LTL shippers get the job done as quickly and cheaply as possible, keeping their customers happy and their overhead low.
