How do I know I am choosing the best LTL Carrier each time I send a shipment?
You only know if you rate each shipment using the carrier’s own set of rates and service tables along with your discounts. Small changes in zip codes will push a shipment from a direct to an indirect point, often affecting shipment costs by up to 35% on a given shipment.
Does a standard rate base such as Czar Lite let me put my carrier's on a level playing field?
No. Standard rate bases lower your discounts because the carrier bases pricing on all lanes, not their optimum areas for service.
Is there a better way to use the carriers' own set of rates without re-entering data over and over in different programs?
Yes. LTL Rater software allows the user to enter data once, rate a shipment, print a bill of lading, track the shipment, and audit the carrier bill, as often as needed.
How do i know the bill from my carrier is correct?
LTL Rater software provides accounting the ability to quickly lookup a Pro number in shipment history and enter the actual bill amount. This provides a quick bill audit as well as a rating history for any issues with carrier bill variances.
How do I standardize my labels, bills of lading, and shipment reports?

Can LTL Rater save important information that I use over and over again?

Will the LTL Rater software work with my printers?

Absolutely! The software will save you more than $20 per business day in data entry cost alone. Add to that, auditing savings and always getting the lowest cost carrier to a given destination.
