Why Freight Quoting Tools Matter

Freight quoting tools like WebCargo provide forwarders with the tools they need to:

  • Access live, dynamic rates from a wide range of top carriers.
  • Include additional fees, giving an accurate picture of costs.
  • Provide optimised customer quotes with accurate pricing and routing.

Shippers demand more from their forwarders, including real-time insights and quick decisions. By leveraging real-time market rates and carrier capacity data, forwarders can meet these expectations and gain a competitive edge.

What Makes WebCargo Stand Out?

WebCargo’s advanced features streamline workflows directly from Logistaas:

  1. Real-Time Pricing and Capacity: Access accurate rates across industry- leading carriers directly from Logistaas. This allows you to make smarter booking decisions based on real-time pricing and available capacity, reducing costly inaccuracies and improving efficiency.
  2. Direct eBookings and Automatic eAWBs: With WebCargo, you can eliminate double entries and streamline bookings. The platform offers instant booking with live confirmations directly integrated into Logistaas, reducing errors and improving the quoting and booking process.
  3. End-to-end Management: WebCargo allows you to manage their shipments from pricing to booking to management through API integration. This complete digitisation process enhances team efficiency and streamlines workflows, improving efficiency by up to 86%.

The Value of Real-Time Data

In freight forwarding, timing is everything. Rates can change quickly based on capacity, fuel costs, and other variables. WebCargo enables forwarders to react to market changes instantly by providing real-time rates and capacity information. Fewer last-minute changes mean better margins, improved customer satisfaction, and reduced operational costs.

How WebCargo’s API Integration Helps

The API integration offers automated data exchange directly with Logistaas’s TMS, eliminating the need for manual data entry, which reduces errors and administrative overhead. The API enables forwarders to receive automated updates, including booking status, rate changes, and shipment tracking. This simplifies your team’s work and enables quicker, more accurate decisions. It also eliminates repetitive tasks like manual rate comparison and data entry and ensures accurate and timely data processing, avoiding costly delays. The best part? You have access without ever leaving Logistaas!
