St. Paul, MN, June 08, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- FreightShipping.com is excited to announce the release of its new online freight classification tool. This tool allows users to embed a freight class calculator on any website. The company expects the freight class calculator to help first time or infrequent freight shippers choose the correct freight class for non-parcel shipments.
By simply copying and pasting a snippet of HTML code into the layout of a webpage, users can offer this free service to site visitors. FreightShipping.com specifically designed the easy-to-use online tool for other online freight shipping service providers.
“We’ve been providing freight services and rates since 1997 and one of the most important, if not most confusing, aspects of pricing shipments is the freight class. We hope that by offering this service to shippers, ecommerce shop owners and other third-party freight providers, we are contributing to the simplification of rating and booking shipments online,” says John Houser, marketing coordinator for FreightShipping.com.
As part of the freight shipment rating and quoting process, freight classification plays an important role in determining the final cost of shipping. In addition to cost, a freight class also helps the shipper select a carrier that transports a specific commodity or owns the appropriate equipment for the specific load type.
The freight class calculator is free to use and its size can be adjusted to fit on most webpages. For instructions on implementation, please visit http://freightshipping.com/widgets.
