ShipX, the Kansas City MO-based online freight exchange, announces the company’s rebrand to become FreightorGator, effective immediately.
Besides a new name, FreightorGator unveils a new logo and redesigned website, www.freightorgator.com, to better reflect the company’s character and mission to save less-than-truckload shippers time and money through modern technology. The unveiling of the FreightorGator brand coincides with the introduction of newly negotiated direct rates from leading carriers and a temporary waive on FreightorGator’s $25 booking fee.
“We’re thrilled to announce our new name and brand to the transportation industry,” said Augie Grasis, chief executive officer and founder of FreightorGator. “ShipX was an old name representing a new idea. It is time for our name to match the mold-breaking, time- and cost-saving online service we provide to help small businesses simplify their LTL shipping.”
Under its new name, FreightorGator will retain its core service offering to provide LTL shippers a modern and streamlined approach to booking freight, but through FreightorGator’s newly negotiated, exclusive direct rates from top LTL carriers, customers are getting the best volume prices to choose from. In FreightorGator’s “one-stop-shop” process, after a customer enters a shipment’s size, weight, origin, and destination, FreightorGator will quickly aggregate shipping results from 25-plus LTL carriers for the customer to compare and then book shipments. The system automatically dispatches carriers for pick-ups, and customers are able to track shipments until they arrive at their destination.
