Accurate Rate Quotes at your fingertips

Ball-park drayage rate quotes that might include only line haul and fuel surcharge are causing a lot of wasted time and activity for everyone in the supply chain.

Brokers, forwarders and intermediaries are often making decisions on partial quotes which means they are guessing at the accessorial charges, extra fees and tolls which makes their accruals, and even the basis for carrier selection inaccurate.

Carriers perform the service, and send invoices with all the additional chassis and port-related charges included, and wait to get paid. When the customer gets the invoice, the finance people push approval of the invoice back to operations because it’s higher than the accrual. Days are lost as communications go back and forth between the three of them. The invoice finally gets approved and then the payable clock starts ticking.  The carrier gets paid late, negatively impacting cash flow.

Is there an efficient way to get accurate, all-in quotes upfront without spending more time and effort emailing the world?

That’s where DrayMaster comes in.
