GUELPH, Ont. — Freight rate benchmarking provider, Trans-Lucent Markets, has announced it has upgraded its AccuFreight Index.
The new version of the Web-based freight rate benchmarking tool includes enhanced features for improved freight rate comparisons, the company says.
“The updated AccuFreight Index is still very easy to use,” says Shelina Lalani, president of Trans-Lucent Markets. “The only difference is our subscribers now have more options to get the best freight rate comparison we can give them. The upgrades make it easier to stay current with market rates, watch the trends, widen searches and make informed shipping decisions.”
