Cargo.one has announced that it has launched cargo.one pro, which equips freight forwarders with seamless digital agent-to-agent bookings.
Procuring rates from abroad has traditionally taken import agents hours or even days – a manual process made more inefficient by agents being located in different time zones. Cargo.one pro offers a step-change experience with the opportunity to browse and book live airfreight and local charges from a wide range of verified export agents around the world.
Shipments will receive an instant confirmation, routing and airway bill details and can be booked day and night. According to the company, import agents using cargo.one pro will often be the first to quote their customers, beating their competition by a wide margin. In an industry where speed is of the essence, this competitive advantage can lead them to win more business.
Hauke Langert, CEO Airfreight at Germany-based freight agent Skyline Express International GmbH, adopted cargo.one pro during its development phases and points to its ability to drive new business. “By using cargo.one pro on both the import and export sides, instead of sending an email to a partner in Asia for example, we are now able to send quotes to clients or to agents within seconds,” he commented. “Since listing our rates on cargo.one pro, we’ve been amazed by the number of our quotes being shared and accepted – it’s a game-changer”.
Moritz Claussen, Founder & Co-CEO of cargo.one, commented: “cargo.one has always focused its innovation on increasing connectivity and making freight forwarders’ lives easier. As an industry, transactions between import and export agents have been neglected and left on the digital sidelines. cargo.one pro is a significant leap forward in empowering forwarders to collaborate globally, with world class digital tools. With cargo.one pro, forwarders are already finding trusted partners and winning new business within hours of signing-up”.
