Play with a live demonstration of our Cerasis Freight Extension.
See Wiki based documentation & examples.
Our Cerasis Freight extension retrieves freight rates via the Cerasis 3PL Logistics Carrier. With Cerasis you are able to retrieve rates from upto 60 different Freight Carriers (including FedEx, Yellow/YRC, Con-Way, R&L, Estes), with additional options to show cheapest carrier or select from your preferred.
Has options to offer freight shipping only when an item marked as freight is in the cart, or if a pre-defined weight limit is exceeded, this extension is ideal if you sell a mix of freight and non-freight items.
Contains support to book & track shipments via Magento direct. No need for an additional 3rd party interface.
You will need to register for a Cerasis account in order to retrieve rates using this extension.
Please Note: This is a lightweight version of the Cerasis extension, lacking ability for customers to select accessorials at checkout, and limit shipping options to freight only when freight items in cart or minimum weight threshold met. Once you have registered with Cerasis we will make available the full release.
Many customers use Freight Shipping with other WebShopApps extensions to form a superior shipping solution:
• Use with the Dropship extension to specify standard shipping rates on items from one location and freight rates on items from another
• Use with the Dimensional Shipping extension to send dimensions into the Freight Shipping extension
• Use with Shipping Override to only offer freight shipping in specific countries / regions
