VISCO announces that it has selected Freightquote.com to provide freight transportation management services that will be integrated into VISCO’s software for importers.
Using Freightquote.com web services, VISCO will provide its users with the ability to calculate a variety of freight carrier quotes for each shipment. Users can choose the carrier they want for each shipment and schedule the pickup within the system. Freightquote.com will provide access to its freight experts to answer questions and help users with their freight shipping needs.
“Our users were walking away from the computer to pick up the phone to tell a freight brokering service the same information they just entered into VISCO to get freight quotes. That’s crazy. This is an enhancement that has really been driven by our customers. They have been asking us for this functionality for a while, and we are glad to finally be able to deliver it.”
“Customers want automation, but they won’t sacrifice service. It’s really important to us to maintain strong relationships with customers because that is what has made us successful. We’ll still be a phone call away to help assure these shipments get there on time and problem-free.”
