How are freight costs and permits calculated using the Freight Rate Calculator?

Permits, pilot cars, bucket trucks, high-pole cars, etc. are calculated using permit data from each State Department of Transportation.
Line haul estimates are generated via our proprietary rating engine based on industry data sources and our marketplace transaction data.

FR8Star operates under MC 943310.

How do I get paid for delivering a load?

Carriers moving FR8Star loads choose from the following payout options:

  • Comchek® Mobile (Instant payout upon receipt of POD)
  • ACH bank transfer (2-4 days after receipt of POD)
  • Paper check (mailed after receipt of POD)
  • Comdata Express Code (Instant payout upon receipt of POD)

Do I need to invoice FR8Star to get paid?

No, we will automatically pay out in full upon receiving POD, so there is no need to send an invoice.
