FreightWise, LLC. is a privately held freight logistics and cost management company, based out of Nashville, Tennessee United States. It specializes in freight cost management services including LTL, full truckload (TL), Parcel, and expedited shipping both domestic and international (Canada & Mexico). Admins (Clients) partner with FreightWise, LLC. to leverage our carrier volume, technology, and industry knowledge to reduce transportation costs over 15-20% in most cases. FreightWise’s shipping integration extension is used when large and heavy items need to be shipped that cannot be accurately quoted by parcel service providers. 

This extension provides shipping rates dependent on customer state, zip and total product weights and commodity classes. FreightWise's extension/integration returns multiple carriers rates, transit times, and client defined markup costing. Lowest prices will be returned on top.

Admins can edit settings in admin panel regarding origin, lift gate, residential, and NMFC classes etc. In addition, FreightWise's extension/integration handles "Special Cases" such as White-Glove and Flatbed delivery services that are dictated by the products' weight and classes.

Customers have options to choose services on checkout page; including selecting Lift gate needs and/or Residential delivery areas.

 This module is free, but to get all the functionalities you must have a paid client ID / account at FreightWise, LLC. to gain access to the API.
