CargoReservations is the neutral exchange of services for the transportation industry. It joins buyers with shipping needs with forwarders and carriers who have freight capacity in one marketplace. Buyers can post freight, track shipments and manage contracts. Forwarders can find parties able to move freight, or can join the carriers in bidding on freight items to be moved on their own network. Carriers, called sellers on the CargoReservations System, can post available capacity or quote on freight posted by forwarders and shippers. The system is designed so that every party benefits. The CargoReservations' hosted logistics platform is based on the principle that real-time communication and flexible contract management are the key contributors that produce value in an intermediary system. It is the flexibility and time efficient characteristics of the system that make it particularly attractive to carriers seeking to maximize asset utilization through less-than-plane, truck or container load operations. Buyers are given the tools to leverage their market power by hosting auctions for their freight requests in an effort to identify the seller (carrier), which can provide the best value on aspects more than just price. Shipment tracking and contract management are other services which add to the comprehensiveness of the system. Built by transportation professionals, our staff has combined the experience of several decades, creating the industry's most advanced negotiation and contracting tool. The CargoReservations' platform affords its customers real value through reduced quote submittal and review time, improved negotiation and communication, joining players across physical and geographical boundaries.
