VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 1, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Freightera, the innovative award-winning freight marketplace serving businesses with instant freight quotes in the USA and Canada, just announced the release of a significantly upgraded quoting engine. This makes the largest freight rate inventory in North America more accessible for businesses struggling with lack of transport availability and high prices. All-inclusive fixed-cost online freight quotes at Freightera now load faster and more reliably, allowing users to interact with them right away.
Freightera's Quote Machine™ was slowing down, processing over 20 billion rates connecting thousands of cities and towns in the USA, Canada, and cross-border. "Freightera's engineers had to rethink the loading strategy and rose to the challenge of rebuilding the rocket mid-flight with no downtime or disruption to the users," says Eric Beckwitt, Freightera CEO. "Not much has changed with the look users know, but the speed and interactivity make a better experience. We're receiving good feedback from customers and are excited to invite new companies to Freightera."
"Smaller companies and new businesses unable to reliably get trucks or reasonable prices suffer the most," continues Beckwitt. "Freightera provides relief to stressed business shippers by offering untapped capacity and saving precious dollars and time with sharp ready-to-book rates in the system."
Businesses that ship regularly know the pain of securing shipping pricing and capacity. Shipping costs and logistics, which make-or-break businesses in the best of times, went from bad to worse with the pandemic disruption and the cost of gas skyrocketing in recent months. "Smaller companies and new businesses unable to reliably get trucks or reasonable prices suffer the most," continues Beckwitt. "Freightera provides relief to stressed business shippers by offering untapped capacity and saving precious dollars and time with sharp ready-to-book rates in the system. This gives our remarkable customer-centric team a huge sense of mission in these challenging times."
