Merrillville, IN (PRWEB) July 6, 2006
Small Business Transport, a leader in shipping for over twenty years, is pleased to announce they have made getting accurate shipping quotes and information to online customers even easier than before. Using SBT’s Freight 101.com web interface, businesses with shopping cart websites can offer their customers real time shipping quotes.
Taking care of retailer and wholesaler transportation needs has long been a specialty of Small Business Transport. With uniquely personal service they can create the perfect shipping program for any sort of business. At their website, http://www.freight101.com, SBT’s staff can design a customized logistics program to meet the needs of any company, their customers, and their budget. On average SBT and Freight 101’s shipping charges are 20 to 30% less than other transport companies.
However, you need not trade quality for price. Small Business Transport could not have stayed in business as long as they have without delivering quality. The benchmark of quality among shippers is their claim ratio, meaning the percentage of freight that has claims of damage or loss. The average claim ratio in the freight industry is 1.5%; SBT shatters this number with a claims rate of .25%. This means, on average, a business is six times more likely to have problems getting their freight delivered by other shippers than Freight 101. They are understandably very proud of this figure.
A business looking for a full service shipper should search no further than Freight 101.com. Wherever they need freight shipped and whatever they are shipping, Freight 101.com has the answer. They offer full and less than truck load shipping. They carry parcels and letters and can even handle hazardous materials safely and inexpensively.

Having instant access to so many trucking firms, Freight 101.com provides flexibility unheard of with other trucking and shipping companies.
A Freight Resource Center helps people new to the world of ‘Less Than Truckload’ shipping learn the terminology and the processes of truckload shipping. No matter what businesses a merchant is getting into, the Resource Center is the place to go to begin understanding the complexities of shipping, a vital part of any retail operation.
Freight 101.com provides a glossary of shipping terms, a freight density calculator, multiple carrier claim forms, and other useful tools. By taking a look at the Suppliers section of the Resource Center customers can find car transporters, home movers, and packing and crating companies.
Freight 101.com offers instant free shipping quotes for first time visitors and frequent customers can register and receive customized rating applications, higher discounts, save customers to online address books, create bill of ladings, and run useful shipping reports.
