The highlights of our February Member's Meeting are included here. This monthly meeting is a chance to learn about Digital Freight Alliance's planned projects. We begin with a brief overview of last month's meeting and then examine many of the important debates that occurred.

 

This article will outline the agenda for future meetings and provide information on upcoming Digital Freight Alliance events that you may be interested in attending or participating in.

 

Today’s digital world demands we work in an entirely new way. 

 

Logistics Explorer

SeaRates Logistics Explorer is a unique online-quotation module for transport and logistics companies who are looking to increase their sales by using their own websites to get online bookings from customers.

Rates & Tariffs 

Logistics Explorer's backbone is the RMS, which allows you to manage rates. It gives you a single source of truth and an easy and fast way to access your rates.

It allows you to search for your contract rates as well as those of agents and partners you have subscribed to in a matter of seconds.

 

Advertise your rates on SeaRates.com to more than 20k visitors every day

 

How to increase sales?

Subscribe on rates of your partners in different countries and make additional sales on their services. Add your own rates and allow your partner network to advertise and resell them.

 

Opt-in to make your rates discoverable by other members

By opting-in your rates for other members, to leverage them for their customers, you have the opportunity to win new business.

 

Your partner member will be promoting your selling rates in his country, expanding your sales geography in the new markets. 

 

 

Tracking system

An ultimate cargo tracking system, which works on any desktop or mobile device. Let your customers know where their cargo is and view it on the map without calling you! 

 

Arrange your shipments 

Folders function allows you to organize all the cargoes under weight in the specific order convenient for you. 

You may name folders after BL numbers or any other identificator on your own just to have the perfect management and efficiency.

 

 

Container Tracking Integration

The Tracking System is a unique application that was created with the aim of tracking cargo without the need to visit multiple sites of various carriers. In the modern world of logistics, customers will not perceive a forwarder as a reputable service provider if they are unable to digitally track their goods. Customers are likely to question a carrier’s credibility if that carrier does not provide tracking information on the movement of their valuable goods in real time.

 

 

Ship Schedules

Whether you're planning container bookings or analyzing vessel movements, we have the most comprehensive sailing schedule database. Complete, accurate and updated continuously, our schedule data is available to logistics professionals - anytime and anywhere. Search our extensive routes to find the right schedule which fits your supply chain.
