Do you need a buddy in the LTL freight shipping business? We are pleased to offer your shipping department a freight quotation and scheduling service that we think you'll love. Freight Buddy is operated by Reviva Logistics and is tailored to provide freight quotation, brokerage and scheduling services for dealers and shops of all varieties that are receiving or shipping LTL (less than truckload) shipments throughout the United States and Canada.
Unlike most on-line shipping brokers or your local carrier, Freight Buddy has negotiated rates with America's top carriers to provide simple, on-time, and careful shipping services. Freight Buddy may not always have the lowest cost for local intra-state shipments, but the farther the distance, the more savings you will realize. And while you will like our rates, we think you will love how easy it is to schedule a shipment.
Here’s how it works:
Go to www.freightbuddy.com
You can either choose a specific industry (i.e. automotive, marine) by clicking one of the options at the bottom of the page. If you do not chose a specific industry, that’s okay, the scheduler will default to automotive class shipments.
Or, if you have something that you want to ship that is not listed at the bottom or is not automotive in nature and you know your NMFC number, simply enter the date of shipment, enter the ship to and ship from zip. When you choose the quantity of pieces in the shipments, you will click ‘no’ when it asks you if this is an automotive shipment for each item you wish to ship. Once you click no, in addition to the shipment information, it will ask you for the specific NMFC number that shall be used for this shipment. If you do not know this number, that is okay, Freight Buddy is here to help. Simply call us at 800.578.6009 and we will be happy to help research the specific freight class that best matches your shipment.
Once you choose the shipment dimensions and the weight, Freight Buddy will provide you a quote for several carriers that you can choose from. If you like what you see, you can either schedule the shipment with a credit card or you can establish an account with Freight Buddy. Once you have completed the easy and quick steps - print off your custom made Bill of Lading form and affix it to your shipment or send it to your vendor to affix to their shipment.
Freight Buddy will schedule your shipment for the same day pick-up if submitted before 1:00 p.m.(sometimes later depending on the carrier and days shipment volumes) from the shipping address time zone, or the next day if after 1:00 p.m. If you choose, Freight Buddy will confirm with an email when your shipment is scheduled for pick-up.
