Estes’ real-time truckload rates now available to Kuebix shippers

Feb. 23, 2021
Community Load Match’s growing carrier community from Trimble’s network of 1.3 million commercial trucks offers access to contract rates to meet the demand of shippers and intermediaries with regular lanes.

Kuebix’s community of 25,000 shippers can now receive real-time rates on truckload spot quote requests from Estes Forwarding Worldwide (EFW).

According to EFW, customers enter a truckload shipment in Kuebix and click “submit spot” to receive an instant EFW rate from Kuebix’s load matching platform, Community Load Match. This new collaboration expands on previous joint offerings from EFW and Kuebix, including a domestic expedited service that was launched over the summer.

“EFW strives to combine technological innovation with an unwavering commitment to customer experience and satisfaction,” commented Scott Fisher, CEO of Estes Forwarding Worldwide. “I’m pleased to offer all Kuebix shippers the ability to instantly receive truckload rates from EFW, then to easily book and manage their shipments in Kuebix TMS.”

According to Kuebix, when a user requests a truckload spot rate, Community Load Match will immediately display an EFW price. The addition of EFW real-time truckload rates further enhances Community Load Match’s current contract and spot rate capabilities. Community Load Match’s growing carrier community from Trimble’s network of 1.3 million commercial trucks offers access to contract rates to meet the demand of shippers and intermediaries with regular lanes.

For small- to medium-size businesses and shippers with occasional spot requirements, Community Load Match provides competitive spot rates when shippers and intermediaries don’t have the volume to set up contract rates. For carriers, Community Load Match's spot opportunities help to reduce empty miles when balancing lanes and repositioning assets.

To help companies manage their supply chains efficiently in today’s market environment, Kuebix added it is offering shippers 60 free days of its Kuebix Business Pro TMS. With Kuebix Business Pro, logistics teams can collaborate remotely across multiple locations, source contract and spot rates, and leverage actionable reports and analytics for improved strategic shipping decisions.
