About Freightabase...

Freightabase is a platform for comparing freight carriers, designed so that any freight forwarder, exporter or importer can use it. But, this isn’t your standard price-comparison tool. Freightabase allows its users to find carriers who meet specific criteria of interest, such as location, mode of transport and consignment specialisms such as dangerous or perishable goods via its keyword search function. The project has been a mammoth undertaking, driven by our years of experience within the freight industry, listening to the same frustrations being repeated over and over again.
Freightabase’s platform is free to use, making it accessible to companies large and small. A fairer, more transparent marketplace, and competition that isn’t just focussed on driving prices down? It’s and giving registered companies the maximum opportunity for direct lead generation.
We understand how competitive the freight industry is and believe that we can come up with an unbeatable solution.

Quick Quote

Freightabase users can receive multiple quotes from selected providers who meet the right criteria, rather than researching and then individually requesting quotes from each company. We’re making gaining quotes quicker, easier and more efficient.
