We continue to evolve as a valuable transportation partner to our customers

We want customers new and old to view Fastfrate as a proactive company who responds to your concerns and requests promptly. Our theme of “Simplified Shipping” is just that. We want to be easy to do business with and have undertaken some exciting new initiatives to accomplish just that.

  • We have invested heavily in the technology and the staff to make getting information a more user friendly experience
  • We reduced a step in the log in process so that you enter your request on the home page of our website
  • We have extensive pricing matrices to get quotes easily and specific to your account and commodity shipped
  • We continue to push information out on a proactive basis
  • We're gathering a higher level of shipment data Canada-wide to enable more concise and accurate information and reporting
