  • Time – Having an online platform that keeps your rates updated and that reflects all the latest surcharges and fees will save you and your company a huge amount of time.
  • Quote Faster – Implementing technology with the ability to quickly quote complex shipments is the key to winning more bids while protecting profit margins and growing revenue.
  • Routing – It will be much easier to identify transit time, free time, and sailing schedules with technology – it enables forwarders to determine the optimal routing.
  • Information – A platform that displays the information (such as delays and downtimes) assists in distributing it to clients and members – putting everyone in the picture.
