Carriers are able to call all broker loads directly. Direct shippers can elect to show their direct contact info on loads also.
Q. If I am a carrier or broker using the web app can I only bid on loads or can I call on loads directly?
A. Shipper loads posted by direct shippers require a bid submitted via the ComFreight web app when viewing a shipper load. Broker loads, however, can be called on directly, bid on via the web app and messaged using the question and answer fields on the load details page for any load you find.

A. ComFreight is a true freight marketplace and logistics exchange and is NOT a broker or broker app. ComFreight facilitates matching, bidding, dispatching and invoicing of loads between Shippers, Carriers and Brokers.ComFreight is not to be listed as the bill to on any bill of lading for any loads found on or off of the platform.
Q. Is the any cost to using ComFreight?

Unlimited access to bid on direct shipper loads and analytics tools requires the payment of a small subscription that can be activated by users while logged in from the billing section under settings.

We also offer advances and invoice payment on select loads.
