According to Ted Keyes, a freight agent training expert, quoting can be pretty intimidating for beginners. It can seem complex and overwhelming at first.
Brandon Scott recommends using online rate apps to help you establish a point of start for your rating of cargo and shipping.
It goes without saying that many settings influence the rate, so whenever quoting a lead, bear in mind the following information:
▷ Location - Pick Up city x Delivery City
▷ Date - Pick up and delivery
▷ Trailer type and length.
