Dave, I think that you are on thr right track with smaller shippers consolidating and working together to compete with the larger Forwarders and Carriers. That is a great idea for AirFreight.com. You got me thinking.....

Let's not forget about the purchase by Panther of Integres, they not only have the most powerful rating system, but they also have the Vendor backend system like no other.

FreightQuote dislays the carriers and give you a choice, but then a comon carier shows up to pick up the freight. As a forwarder we used then in the past and then they back solicited us via mass mailing and contact.

I think Panther/Integres has it figured out. They are backed by Feway Partners and the Founders of Expedia were involved with Integres from the begining.

Another alternative to FreightQuote is FreightCenter (www.FreightCenter.com), a full-service freight shipping company that provides free, accurate shipping quotes online, and has a complete customer service staff as well. Clients can have their own accounts and can pay for shipments online via credit card. FreightCenter not only caters to small businesses, but also the one-time or occassional residential shipper. The benefit is that the one-time shipper can obtain the same discounts that larger businesses with contracted negotiated rates have.
