(Flippin, AR – November 15, 2011) CEO William Weaver announces the complete rebuild and re-launch of the very popular website ShipRightNow.com. In a statement to media Weaver is quoted as saying “Our customers gave us feedback on the features they like and dislike, voted on color schemes and layouts and we added blog.shiprightnow.com to announce current event news within the community and as a result ShipRightNow.com is much more user friendly and is quickly growing in the world of transportation and will become a major driving force as the premiere online shipping marketplace.”
Stephen Rhodes, corporate spokesperson said “ We have always, and will continue to listen to our customers to refine, streamline, and constantly improve the way our site works, looks, and feels.”
Rhodes further states “People moving often find themselves in a mess when it comes to locating an affordable and experienced transportation company. Everyone knows to use UPS, FedEx, or the USPS to ship small packages, but when it comes to shipping larger items like furniture, where do you go? And how do you make sure you’re getting the best price?”
Weaver and Rhodes launched the online company ShipRightNow.com in 2009 to address this problem. ShipRightNow.com connects consumers with independent carriers—independent owner/operator truck drivers who have the ability to set their own prices and time schedules.
“Our company helps to keep shipping prices lower for the consumer by allowing shippers to anonymously list their jobs and have different carriers bid on the job. The shipper can get all the information they need from each carrier and then make a selection based on the best prices and overall service without having to give out personal contact information.”
Carriers benefit by being able to fill empty cargo space with freight that needs to be delivered along their scheduled route. “Using ShipRightNow.com to find loads along your route saves truckers from experiencing empty miles. If the delivery is along a route they’re already running, they can afford to bid it out for lower than a big freight company would charge and still make a profit.”
ShipRightNow.com is also a profit enhancer for auction services, car dealers and other small businesses that ship large freight on an irregular basis. Companies like these may not qualify for rate discounts with large freight companies because of their irregular shipping patterns. Because of this, many of these companies turn to shipping brokers to find the best shipping deals.
“The problem with brokers,” Weaver says, “is that most of them are on a commission. It’s not in their best interest to get the lowest shipping fee because that makes their commission lower “
“Using ShipRightNow.com, carriers are dealing with you directly and they know to win the job they need to make sure you get a fair and reasonable shipping rate. It’s a win-win system for everyone.”
Founded in 2009 by Transportation Industry Specialist William Weaver and Internet Technology Specialist Stephen Rhodes, ShipRightNow.com connects shippers with independent carriers to deliver affordable shipping solutions. Shippers place free listings for bid requests to ship a variety of items including household goods, office furniture, cars, pets, artwork, and antiques. Carriers can also create free accounts to search these listings and bid on loads along their existing routes to fill empty cargo space. Please visit www.shiprightnow.com for more information.
