Transportation and third-party logistics (3PL) firm C.H. Robinson is making it easier for small businesses to book shipments across multiple modes of transportation with this week's launch of  Freightquote, a self-service, web-based tool that simplifies the shipping process.

Customers can enter just a few details about their shipment and instantly compare competitive rates from carriers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the firm said. The tool is available from any device and allows customers to book less-than-truckload (LTL) or truckload freight, track shipments, get notifications, and pay with a credit card. The tool is designed for small, entrepreneurial companies that may have limited knowledge in the shipping and logistics process.

"Our research shows that small business shippers want ease of use and peace of mind when booking their shipping, which is exactly what Freightquote by C.H. Robinson's technology is designed to do," C.H. Robinson President and CEO Bob Biesterfeld said in a statement. "Customers are guided through a simple, transparent process that allows them to make the best shipping decision for their small business."

Freightquote is built on C.H. Robinsons's Navisphere global technology platform, the company said.
