The PackFreight Network was started by a store owner to assist other owners to promote their freight capable stores and learn how to do freight profitably and correctly. In creating PackFreight it also increased the requests to stores for more quotes and services. We reached some of our goals by gaining some of the best discounts available and now are moving our focus to promoting stores ablilties in shipping and handling freight. Most of our membership fees go directly towards the costs of advertising the site on the web.
Freight and large package shipping is the future of our industry. Be on board with freight, don't get left behind on the loading dock. Most of the competition you face now with small packages will not attempt freight or large packaging.

What’s a Packfreight? It’s a shipping concept that’s a little bit hard to get your arms around until you get involved. Then the concept becomes very clear very quickly.
First, Packfreight membership brings steeply discounted shipping rates through various shipping partners – including the nation’s premier trucking companies. Contact Jeff Ballantyne at Packfreight (800-431-4205) for full details.
Second, Packfreight membership brings your store a listing on the Packfreight web site….so if a customer in your neck of the woods is looking for someone to pack and ship an item, they will pull up your store on the Packfreight web site. This is a valuable source of revenue for many stores.
Third, Packfreight membership buys you the ‘connection’ to participate in the listserve Packfreight@yahoogroups.com – which you will find to be an invaluable source of tips, suggestions and guidance on how to generate profits through shipping freight. This ‘group wisdom’ is available instantly to any Packfreight member who writes in and asks “How do I do (fill in the topic)?”
Packfreight membership is one of the best investments I make each year….and through my Packfreight contacts, I've steadily grown my freight business from zero five years ago to a level that freight now accounts for 20% of my gross sales. And I fully intend to see that number grow in the years to come!

Just having the link to Packfreight on my website has helped me sell jobs. Any professional organizations I belonged to have helped pave the way for some of the bigger jobs because people seem to love titles and trust franchise name branding.-----------I have been averaging a couple of jobs a year by the Packfreight referral alone, my membership fee was $75.00. I made over $500.00 profit (after paying for materials and labor) on the two jobs I landed.
One carrier gives me a nice discount for being a member. Even when the job doesn't come from Packfreight, I get the discount just for being a member. That has saved me $3,200.00 in freight (or helped me with my margins so I could land a tightly bid job) this past year.

Being a member of PackFreight has done nothing except increase my bottom line. One referral alone was worth over $6,000.00 in billing in 2004. This was an out-of-state client who would have no knowledge of my store except through PackFreight.
In Additions to referrals, PackFreight provides us with contacts and discounts we could not acquire on our own.
Worth more than the price of membership, the knowledge base of other store owners has helped us numerous times in quoting and shipping of unusual items. We did not ship freight 3 years ago, but now we can and do ship items that would have turned down.

I just got my first pack-and-ship job through PackFreight, even though I've been a member since its genesis. The tips, contacts discounts and insights I've gotten have been worth far more than the very small membership fee. Jeff Ballantyne took an idea and made it reality for dozens of pack and ship stores across America. Jeff is one of the industry good guys!
