Quote my Cargo matches people seeking quotes for their freight requests with several freight forwarders. How it works:
A quote is a price provided to carry out a specific service. It is usually provided by a business to a potential client. A quote can also include a range of descriptions of a service that will be provided. It is very common for those requiring a service to consider a few quotations before deciding on which professional to use.
A job can be any service needed – export shipments, import shipments, road freight, rail freight, etc. It is important to post a job describing all your requirements so that matching freight forwarders can provide you with their quotes.
We have a “Site feedback” page, where you can provide any kind of feedback – aspects you like about the site, testimonials, things you do not like, and also things you would like to see on the site. The “Site feedback” link is located to the right of the home page.

There is no cost to sign up to Quote my Cargo. Freight forwarders are also able to quote on jobs for free, and you only pay once you have been assigned the job by the shipper. Our costing structure is based on a small percentage of 3% from the amount quoted.
If you were to pay any success fee and the shipment is cancelled by the shipper, we will refund this to you.
