FAQ

Frequently
Asked
Questions
Can I Add My Own Rates into AmRate?

Yes! With AmRate, you have the flexibility to use your own negotiated rates with carriers alongside our blanket rates. This means that you can take advantage of any special rates or discounts you have negotiated with specific carriers, while also benefiting from our competitive rates. And the best part? You can use both options seamlessly within the AmRate system, giving you the ultimate control over your shipping costs.

How Long Does Set Up Take?

It depends! If you're signing up for our free forever version and leveraging our convenient blanket rates, you can have everything up and running in less than 10 minutes! If you decide to add your Direct Carrier Pricing for a more customized experience, our dedicated IT team is ready to assist. They'll work closely with you, connecting the necessary APIs to ensure a seamless integration in no time.

Does AmRate Integrate With My WMS or other softwares?

Of course! AmRate is equipped with API capabilities, allowing seamless integration with many of the software solutions you're already using. Our IT team is here to assist with this process, ensuring that our systems communicate effortlessly for a smooth and integrated experience.

Will AmRate Schedule My Pickups?

Yes! Once you've selected a carrier during the quoting process and confirmed the booking, AmRate's system takes care of the rest. It automatically dispatches the shipment request to the chosen carrier and promptly sends you a comprehensive shipment confirmation. As an added convenience, the system generates a Bill of Lading, sending it to the destination of your choice.

Does AmRate Only Quote LTL Rates?

Certainly not! Although AmRate comes preloaded with our LTL blanket rates for your convenience, you also have the flexibility to incorporate your own Direct Carrier Pricing for Parcel shipments. Additionally, take advantage of the system's capability to obtain spot quotes for truckload and partial shipments. Simply input relevant information about the load, and the system will seamlessly dispatch it to one of our experienced freight brokers, who will promptly follow up with you.

Can I import my address book and product list?

Absolutely! Instead of manually uploading your address book and product list, discuss with your dedicated dispatcher about conveniently sending them over in an Excel or .csv format. We'll take care of the upload directly to the platform, streamlining your setup process for a hassle-free experience.

How Does A TMS Reduce Cost on LTL Shipments?

An automated Transportation Management System, or TMS, is a common tool used by traffic managers in logistics departments of larger businesses, providing an efficient and cost-effective way to streamline shipping expenditures that can reach into the seven figures. However, these systems can also be highly beneficial to small- to mid-sized companies with lower spends, yet equal need for efficiency and sharp focus on their bottom line.
