Cargobase, the online platform for spot-buy freight, has successfully on-boarded another major logistics service provider. With this latest addition, Cargobase officially secures 10 of the Power 25 Air Freight Providers ; a major accomplishment for the tech start-up, on its mission to become the must-have spot-buy freight solution for enterprise shippers.

Launched in 2014, Cargobase is a platform created to automate a standard process for the management of spot-buy freight, by providing shippers real-time procurement, tracking, payment, analytics and compliance tools.

Over and beyond an API to automate shipment tracking, Cargobase typically offers – both shippers and providers – further optimization developments that automate manual tasks, enhance integration, and improve efficiency.

“Our mission to solve a growing problem in the industry, is starting to take flight. Providers who once saw our solution as a threat, are now identifying us as a channel for new sales opportunities instead.” Wiebe Helder, CEO of Cargobase. “Having the in-depth knowledge of the spot-buy freight market and being independent is key to our success. Companies are more willing to open up and acknowledge that there is a problem, and that it is growing, and that the industry, as a collective, needs to evolve and solve it.”

With Cargobase, shippers can manage multiple providers at the same time for their spot-buy freight, and are free to use their provider of choice. A shipper starts off by connecting their current providers, after which Cargobase can make introductions to new providers based on the shipper’s needs to further optimize their supply chain.
