Respond to COVID-19 with the right tools

Due to the market volatility in times of COVID-XNUMX, no one can give a long-term outlook on the economic situation and make predictions about the development of market prices and product demand.

Many shippers respond to the resulting price increases by combining short and long termrate agreements.

Part of the freight is planned with long-term contracts, while the other part can be flexibly allocated in order to be able to react to market and capacity fluctuations.

We enable you to place short-term spot requests as well as long-term freight tenders on one single digital platform. Our platform enables you to place short-term spot requests as well as long-term freight tendering.

Lack of transparency

Which freight forwarder offers which conditions? No overview of free capacities and market prices, as these have to be compared manually

Missing agreements

Hardly any long-term rate agreements for new or rarely used routes; long-term agreements cannot be held up due to force majeure (e.g. weather, pandemics)

Time consuming processes

Manual communication between shipper and forwarder is complex and time-consuming, as different forwarders have to each be contacted by phone or email
