Fr8 Revolution has announced its new Price Lock feature in the Fr8Star.com marketplace that allows shippers to obtain a fair market rate and book freight for legal and permitted and open deck freight.
The Price Lock feature allows shippers to enter their open deck freight details, agree on a price that includes necessary permits, pilot cars, and a standard service fee and then FR8Star matches and books a qualified carrier.
The guaranteed rate is transparent with detailed line items for permits, linehaul, and any third-party fees. To ensure reliable and secure permit data, FR8Star has worked with each state’s transportation department to obtain precise permit requirements.
The process from payment to confirmation can take as little as 5 minutes to complete, according to Fr8 Revolution.
“Shippers can access FR8Star's online technology from anywhere 24/7 and book shipping,” said Carl-Christoph Reckers, co-founder and chief operating officer of FR8Star. “What used to be a long and tedious process to determine the correct trailer needed, an optimal shipping route and the appropriate permits is now as easy and quick as booking an airline ticket online.”
FR8Star’s Price Lock Feature is available in 48 states on the most common 5 axle setups, including permitted loads.
