Freight Retriever Rate Comparison

By Last updated on: July 30, 2018


Refund Retriever has teamed up with Freight Cowboy to make LTL and truckload freight as easy as shipping a FedEx or UPS package. In just a few easy steps you can see a savings of 15-25% off your current rates by assessing our negotiated contract rates based off a billion dollar spend each year.

We decided to compare an existing FedEx Freight invoice to see if Freight Retriever could have gotten this client a better rate with any of our carriers. If you watch the video above you can see that our customer could have saved $116 with the cheapest carrier. Even FedEx Freight came out cheaper.

Freight Retriever makes conventional, time-consuming rate calculations a thing of the past. Your company can achieve significant freight savings, faster, more efficient shipping and improved decision-making accuracy.

Our rate shopping tool offers you a fast, easy way to determine the best LTL carrier to use for specific shipments. This convenient feature gives you the flexibility of comparing rates for an unlimited number of carriers, based on a variety of destination and classification criteria. Our tool rates LTL shipments by carrier, freight class, destination zip code, and weight. The rate shopping utility will then compare and display the rates for each of the valid carriers on one screen by price.

How do we get our carrier rates so low? In our last blog, we mentioned that on many shipments, our price will be lower because our partner has been negotiating these rates year after year for decades. We are able to leverage over $1 billion of buying power on behalf of our clients into lower rates. This volume of buying power with carriers benefits the customer directly by securing the most competitive freight rates.
