Why Use DrayMaster?

In the drayage industry consistent incomplete and inaccurate rate quoting defeats the purpose of getting multiple quotes in the first place.

Sometimes an invoice is hundreds of dollars higher with extra fees that weren’t captured in the quote.

For drayage providers quoting accurate, timely line haul and fuel surcharge rates can be challenging. Plus, getting their arms around all of the potential accessorials, like equipment and terminal charges, for every potential job is daunting. The complexity of the ever-changing rate and fee structures has made providing and receiving all-in rate quotes practically impossible.

It’s time to simplify intermodal rate management and leverage a more sophisticated management methodology.

For truckers

Providing accurate rates can be simplified with a handful of automations.

  • The ability to standardize and customize rates and mark ups across conditions and customers
