How does spot market shipping work?
The competitive spot prices at Quicargo are calculated by using our very own algorithms. These algorithms deal with an abundance of different factors, such as the weight of the road freight, the distance of the journey, the type of pallet and much more.
This way, we can provide you with an instant quote on our digital platform. Not happy with the date or shipping cost? No worries! You are also able to select alternative dates and spot prices in Quicargo’s platform.
By using Quicargo’s spot market you are instantly provided with a nice overview of the shipping costs and you can book your pallet delivery within the blink of an eye.
What is the difference between contracted and spot rates?
Spot rates are usually based on the day-price and may change between now and tomorrow. These rates give you an instant idea of the costs. Contracted rates are based on fixed lanes or a fixed volume of shipments and are commonly discounted.
At Quicargo, the algorithms of our freight cost calculator will give you a direct price for lanes within the Benelux and for lanes to and from The Netherlands. This offers you great flexibility to order shipments in real-time.
For contracted rates, you can request a quote for high volume transport. Based on your shipper profile, we will make you a customized offer with one-year fixed tariffs.

Any further questions?
Can I ship cargo which is not placed on pallets?
Our carriers will only pick up cargo which is safely placed and secured on pallets.
One exception can be made for FTL freight when the cargo can be steadily placed inside the trailer of a truck.
What is spot freight?
Spot freight is an incidental shipment of goods via truck. The rates are usually based on day prices and are directly available to the shipper.
