Cargobase quoting

Explore the benefits of an automated spot-buy process

Let technology do the heavy-lifting.

Cargobase quoting and provider comparison

Service quality, time and cost, are the key performance indicators of a successful procurement process.

Companies often struggle to score points on all KPIs when it comes to spot-buy freight. Time is often cited as an excuse to bypass a proper procurement process.

With our automated process it doesn’t matter if you invite 1 or 10 parties to quote, both are equally effortless!

A 3.14 minute 6-step quoting process


That’s how long it takes to create a new request, using smart features like previous shipment duplication, auto-complete and pre-select.


Choose who you would like to award the business to. Price, Transit time, Route or Freight mode. Have all the data you need to make a quick and informed business decision.


No more chasing after providers to have them submit their rates. Set the platform to remind them on your behalf.

Your private providers party

Only work with your pre-approved pool of logistics providers. 

We understand that you don’t want to work with just any provider, but only with providers you know and trust. 

For that reason you can decide which providers you would like to add your private pool. This ensures that only pre-approved providers can be invited to quote on your shipments. 

The selection of providers can be specified per location, business unit, country or region. And we are even taking it a step further where you can define per provider what service you’d like to utilize them for. 

For example, you can set it up such that Provider X only receives requests for ocean freight shipments that originate from France. If you have an ocean freight request from Spain they would not be invited.

It is like: Click Request, Click Approve, Click Book.
