PDF document Rate Quote Service Description and Usage
Requires a valid eCentral login
Rate Quote (for former Wilson Trucking Customers)
  • Your Wilson Trucking username and login credentials have been transferred over to the Central Freight Lines website.
  • Each active Wilson account number has been assigned a new ten digit Central Freight Lines account number and has been automatically linked to your CFL / eCentral login.
  • API/Web service users: Existing Wilson customers MUST USE the rate quote service specifically designed for Wilson Trucking Customers and NOT THE CENTRAL FREIGHT rating service. The Wilson only service description can be found here.
  • eCentral users: If you sign on to the Central Freight Lines website to get a rate quote, you must select the "*WILSON TRUCKING CUSTOMERS** Rate Inquiry" link at the bottom left of the InfoCentral section. Selecting either the "Rate Inquiry" or "Rate Inquiry - browser friendly" links will cause unpredictable results.
  • The Wilson Trucking website will remain active until approximately Monday, April 17th, 2017. Until that time you may continue to use all of its features.
