We released our robust Truckload Workflow earlier this year, next up we are adding in Contracted Rates to enhance your experience.
This feature gives you the ability to upload contracted truckload rates manually or via a spreadsheet, allowing you to compare these prices when Quoting, as well as Award & Book with these carriers.
To begin, a Full Access user will click their name in the upper right-hand corner of any Freightview screen to access the Account Settings. From here, select “Contracted Rates” about halfway down on the left:
Initially, we'll show any current Contracts you have set up, or you can select “+ Add contracted rates” to upload pricing by CSV spreadsheet or individual lane/contract.
Here’s an example of the fields you’ll see when adding them manually:
Don't worry, we offer an example.csv of the required format needed in order to complete the uploaded rates option:
- Only one contract per carrier can be added with each upload, with no limit to the number of contracts in total
- A rate will only return if the pickup date falls within the contract's date range
- Fuel price will be assumed in the total when “Fuel incl.” is set to “Yes”
- These will not be applicable to Multi-stop shipments
Once your rates are loaded, the Contracted Rates appear after you enter the quote info and select "Start getting quotes".
Here’s how it'll fall in line on the rates page. If you're ready to select the rate from here, click the box to the left of the carrier name, and then "Award selected carrier" to begin the booking process.
We will continue to add different enhancements to our Truckload Workflow and look forward to hearing how this can enhance your business operations. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you would like to set up a time with our support team to dig deeper into your Freightview experience, or learn more about features to help you Ship Smarter.
