The Contract Lanes feature allows shippers to create specific FTL lanes and add in set rates for their network partners. The Route Guide in Contract Lanes will let shippers define the order in which they want their rates and partners to populate on quotes. Contract Lanes can be accessed by clicking on the Contract Lane tab.
