Each one of these items is easily accessible for you to view before making your selection on a carrier.

How does it work?

Step 1: Create a shipper account

Step 2: Post your freight details to the marketplace

Step 3: Receive quotes from carriers

How does Freightnav save me money?

If your not receiving multiple quotes from carriers, your probably overpaying for your freight. Receiving multiple quotes from carriers helps you weigh out your options and gives you a feel of what the entire market will bring on your shipments. Also we do not charge any fees on booked shipments, unlike traditional brokers who can charge anywhere from 10%-30% on-top of your freight cost.
