This version of the Rate Quote Web Service will only return a single quote option. The response will contain the lowest rated service that meets the needs of your shipment. The returned quote will either be LTL Standard, Volume and Truckload Basic, or Exclusive Use. To receive all of our options that meet your shipment request we recommend migrating to our Rate Quote Web Service 4.0 edition.
Please visit the Rates FAQs page to learn more about the different quote options you may receive.
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.
