Freightview is a standalone transportation management system designed for small to midsize businesses that ship less-than-truckload (LTL) freight and work with multiple carriers or brokers. Their customers include manufacturers and distributors who ship or receive as few as three to more than 100 shipments a week.

Freightview gathers all of its users’ negotiated LTL rates into one place, allowing them to compare options. Users can also schedule pickups, prepare bills of lading, print shipping labels and track shipments. Freightview’s visualization capabilities allow users to convert their shipping data into charts, graphs, reports and spreadsheet downloads.

Freightview is a web-based system that can be used on Windows, Mac and mobile devices. The solution offers a monthly subscription for fixed number of shipments per month. For businesses who want more visibility and accessibility into their carrier and broker rates, Freightview is a useful option to evaluate. A 30-day trial is also offered to experience its functionality before purchase.

Easy of Use

We are now giving our customers many options with different freight carriers with different cost savings and delivery times. We never had this option before, we only offered 1 company for shipping purposes.

Pros

Very user friendly. Many options for different freight carriers.

Cons

Still new to Parker Steel - no dilikes as of yet.

Easy to use but not consistent

Pros

Very quick and easy to quote across multiple LTL carriers!

Cons

Scheduling pickups through the platform is inconsistent. It states dispatched to the carrier, but does not always actually dispatch. Also, both times I've schedule a pickup for a future date, the driver has arrived same day as my request. I also wish volume quoting actually worked, I've never gotten a return quote from that feature.

Freightview Review

Wonderful!

Pros

It is so easy to use! Here at Des Moines Feed we used to TYPE out every bill of lading, so you can imagine what a relief this is!!

Cons

The only con I can think of is that not all carriers are included in the Freightview software.

Saved by the FreightView

In a pinch of switching from a single LTL carrier to multiple carriers, FreightView was quick and easy to implement and train our team on so it was a fairly smooth transition. Their support team is extremely knowledgeable and quick to resolve any issues we've run into. Plus they are great at communicating to keep you up-to-date with any changes in open support items or issues they are proactively working to resolve even though we may not have even been aware of initially.

Pros

Easy to setup, many customizable options, onboarding carriers is smooth and quick, and the great UI makes it easy to train & use daily for our users.

Cons

Some of the other solutions we looked at had the option to manually add shipment tracking info to have it all in one place even though we're not shipping through FreightView yet.

From a Freight Newbie

Pros

I've never used any freight software before and this one was intuitive and easy for a newcomer.

Cons

Freight class distinctions are still an issue for me when looking for quotes, like if I need a certain number of a product that would change the class it's hard to figure out.

So Far So Good!

Multiple carriers is new to our company so ease of seeing all of them is GREAT!

Pros

I like that there is one screen with many of the details we needed to see (interline), multiple options per carrier, etc.

Cons

We are not utilizing it yet to its fullest extent...only for quoting purposes at this time.

Freightview has always been very responsive to our needs, and helped us get our items we sell with the correct freight class code.

Freightview needs to keep their software up to date so that it works properly with our WP website.

Freightview Review

Right now i'm disappointed with the way my service ticket was handled. It took almost 30 days and caused us to lose money. Service issues need to be handled better. Especially when its causing them to lose money on shipments.

Pros

It simplifies the in house routing of carriers for inbound and outbound freight.

Cons

There is delays when searching for previous quotes. You cannot setup products outside of booking.
