Differences in spot rates and closing times for new orders

At Quicargo, we value transparency in pricing. As such, on this page, you can find information about three different type of spot rates: standard, same day and last-minute.

The time at which you place an order – as well as the pick-up location and destination, determine which spot rate you will receive.

  • Standard rates = orders placed early during office hours
  • Last-minute rates = orders placed during late office hours
  • Same day rates = orders that need to be picked up on the same day


Also, please take note of the closing times for new orders. After these set times, we will no longer accept shipments with a pick-up for the next day.
