What is Silo's freight accessorial policy?
We understand that transparent pricing is crucial for our users when identifying produce hauling rates. In general, Silo will honor the price shown at the time of your instant freight quote. However, there may be occasions where accessorial charges are significant enough that we will add them to the final invoice amount. Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about additional non-standard accessorial charges related to produce transportation (e.g., reconsignment, unplanned route deviation, lumper charge) and check out our list of commonly assessed accessorial rates here.
What is freight financing?
Silo's Freight Financing provides immediate cash flow to trucking companies hauling produce and other good, allowing them to cover operational expenses, such as fuel costs, driver wages, equipment maintenance, and other business needs, without having to wait for the clients' payment.
