The forwarding industry keeps evolving and ocean freight carriers and container ports keep changing processes and invent new terms and acronyms. Governing bodies implement new rules and guidelines all the time.


Do you struggle to understand what your freight forwarder quoted?


Do you have difficulty comparing freight quotations?


Do you have difficulty calculating total shipping charges?


Does your final freight invoice differ from what was quoted?


Do you get confused by all the acronyms like EBS, OTHC, DAD or GRI?


Do your customers, or suppliers, have different definitions for terms such as FOB or CFR?


Do you struggle to find freight related cost cutting opportunities?



Searching for answers on the internet is very time consuming and the information is not always reliable or conclusive.


Knowledge about freight forwarding operations is mostly shared and transferred at the workplace, from practitioner to novice.


Your Freight Forwarder might not be forthcoming with information.

Courses and books on freight forwarding (if you can find one) are more theoretical and less operational.

How do we create transparency?

By increasing knowledge.

In 2009 we published a book about the “Ins and Outs” of Ocean Freight Forwarding. This publication is meant to help shippers, as well as freight forwarders, to better understand all the moving components when shipping goods in containers via ocean freight.


By automating processes




Rate requests, preparing quotations, awarding of shipments and billing can be a frustrating process.

Often this will prevent shippers from trying out new, and possibly better, forwarders.

And forwarders are busy with administrative work instead of securing new business.
