Container shipping rates

On our platform both sides are in control of determining the container shipping rates. Together you will find the right price for the job. Because of this system we are known as the platform in Europe for the best price for container shipping.

It all starts with someone publishing a shipment or room for shipment. When a shipment is posted by a shipper, carriers will send quotes. The shipper can then decide on what carrier they want to work together with. This way both the shipper and carrier are in control of the price. The carrier has the final call on who will get the shipment. But the carrier is free to determine the price they will do the job for.

When a carrier publishes his room on our platform, he can decide the price for that room. Shippers can then fill in this room with shipments for the given price. This way the carrier has the last call on what shipment he will take. Shippers are free to consider if the price is right for their shipment.
