Freight Logistics Implements CargoSphere Rate Technology Platform

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- CargoSphere, the leading, cloud-based global rate management solution and confidential Rate Mesh for the ocean and air transportation and logistics industries, today announces that Freight Logistics, a leading global freight forwarder and logistics service provider, has implemented the CargoSphere technology platform. Freight Logistics is now self-managing air and ocean carrier contracts using CargoSphere's SUDS (Smart Upload and Diagnostic Solution) and is receiving rates over CargoSphere's Web-based, real-time Rate Mesh from carriers, NVOs and the NCBFAA-SA.



The timing of Freight Logistics' implementation of the CargoSphere platform, from initial presentation to 'go live', was only 2 months. Cloud-based systems have a shorter implementation cycle due to less IT involvement and the immediacy of internet connectivity. This along with CargoSphere's easy-to-understand, user-friendly interface allows for quick learning and adoption of the CargoSphere system. Rapid implementation offers faster time to insights and optimizes return on investment.

Freight Logistics required a technology solution that streamlined rate and contract management -- all in one place. CargoSphere's rate search engine offers access to all possible routing options and mode-specific filters allowing a user to quickly select the optimal routing and rate. Freight Logistics now has a single freight rate database that allows them to quickly issue professional, branded quotations to customers.

Marcela Garbers, operations supervisor, Freight Logistics said, "Due to the volume of rates we manage and array of rate sources we access, processing and effectively using rate data was cumbersome and complex. Comparing rate options manually was time consuming and wasn't productive. We knew we needed a tool that would simplify this process. With CargoSphere we're able to quickly and affordably compare all rate sources in one search engine and quote faster to enhance customer satisfaction. In addition, we found CargoSphere's customer support team to be very helpful in getting us up and running and fast to respond to our needs."

"Freight Logistics understands that technology is a tool for driving competitive differentiation and the best customer experience. We welcome them and are pleased they're already connecting with rate sharing partners via the Rate Mesh to improve collaboration and optimize performance," said Neil Barni, president of CargoSphere.
