WISL WebRate

WISL Webrate is a web based application that provides the capability to enter the characteristics of a shipment and retrieve the best rate along with a list of other applicable rates and access to further details about the rates and contract arrangements.

Contract arrangements with carriers can be complex and freight rate structures are often bewildering for those not directly involved in rate negotiations. A large organization with a variety of shipping needs could have scores of rating arrangements that may apply to a given shipment. The interactive tools of WISL WebRate may be utilized to simplify finding the best rate for a given shipment.
