Introduction

Updated Quote Options

In addition to returning LTL and time-critical quote options, this version of the Rate Quote Web Service may return the following volume and truckload quote options in the response:

  • Volume and Truckload Basic

  • Volume and Truckload Guaranteed Standard

Please visit the Rates FAQs page to learn more about the different quote options you may receive.

Accessorial Rates Update

The type and/or cost of accessorials offered can differ based on the chosen service. So, it is important to make sure that the web service response for accessorials is included for each service level.

Sort and Segregate Addition

Sort and segregate is a service that is subject to additional charges as per the Estes 105 Rules Series Tariff, Item 886. Initially, this version of the Rate Quote Web Service will include a sort and segregate rating option for Volume and Truckload shipments (only), but it will not be fully implemented until a later date. We are including this option now to allow you to prepare for the upcoming functionality; however, in the event you send a request with the sort and segregate option, the WS will ignore that field and return a quote without including the sort and segregate charges. Until we have released the functionality that calculates the sort and segregate charges, please call us for any volume and truckload shipments requiring this service at 1-866-378-3748, Press 3. If you would like us to contact you when sort and segregate has been fully implemented, feel free to send an email to our Sales Support team. Please keep in mind that if you need sort and segregate services for shipments other than volume and truckload, you will continue to contact your local terminal. Only the volume and truckload rate quote will include this functionality.
