Descartes ShipRush makes it easier for customers to evaluate parcel and LTL options to make better shipping decisions for their requirements.

The benefits of adding LTL freight to Descartes ShipRush include:

Parcel and LTL freight in one solution – offers an extensive list of national and regional LTL freight carriers and the ability to access both parcel and LTL services in one solution.
