How to Improve Your Freight Quote Request Rating

Its All About Requests And Responses

A key element is a comparison between your volume of quote requests and your count of responses to the quoter. By quoting and responding you are showing the system you can use its fundamental functions. If you can do that then quoters know you’re playing the game right, and you will get more quotes.

Information Is Everything

Your QRR takes account of the amount of information you have entered in your past quote requests. So, for example, you can enhance your QRR by entering useful information in the additional comments section. You will also boost your QRR by giving precise location details for delivery and arrival addresses in the private comments section.

Keep it ‘Human’

Finally, an important piece of information which can help or hinder your QRR score is the ‘humanness‘ of your requests.
