Have you ever asked your Freight Forwarder or Customs Broker for a shipping quote, only to have to wait up to 48 hours for an outcome?
According to a recent study conducted by Maritime Research Consulting and Financial Advisory Service, Drewry, Freight forwarders spend 24.4 million hours of labour a year to find and manage carrier rates for clients, for an estimated labour cost of $500 million.
Is it any wonder ocean rates and costs are never up to date?
Understanding the enormity of the exercise to keep rates current and to deliver clients rate shipping cost enquiries at the touch of a key, GPSM has developed a number of unique technological processes to provide its clients with Freight Calculator.
Freight Calculator harnesses the multitude of rates in the marketplace, instantly provides a sell price and incorporates all destination charges, including trucking to destination, all in an easy to read format.
Freight Calculator is great for sales departments looking to cost upcoming orders or for quoting customer enquiries. It is also useful for Accounts when it comes to checking their Freight Forwarders invoice.
Freight Calculator is designed to provide shippers with accurate, current freight rates and charges, all at the click of a button.
