Logistics technology platform provider Freightos has struck a deal with FedEx’s Logistics and Trade Networks units for digitisation of sales and customs brokerage operations.
The agreement – with FedEx Logistics and FedEx Trade Networks Transport & Brokerage (FedEx Trade Networks), the largest customs-entry filer in the US – will span internal sales digitisation for FedEx Logistics and digital customs brokerage on Freightos.com, what the company claims is the world’s largest online freight marketplace.
“The Freightos Group is proud to be selected by FedEx Logistics for a global rollout of WebCargo’s AcceleRate, a multi-modal rate management and sales digitisation platform, and WebCargo Air, the air cargo pricing, quoting, and eBooking platform,” the company says.
The two solutions enable instant global freight pricing for FedEx Logistics users globally, improving customer service and internal efficiencies, Freightos says.
In addition, Freightos.com will incorporate the sophisticated digital customs brokerage services that FedEx Trade Networks offers to enable smoother international trade for the 150,000+ global importers and exporters registered on the Freightos.com shipping marketplace.
The on-demand customs brokerage provided by FedEx Trade Networks will augment Freightos.com’s one-stop offering of instant price comparison, booking, and management across over 75 leading global logistics providers.
“FedEx Logistics brings a focus on compliance and simplicity, along with a globally trusted brand, to customers and importers on Freightos.com,” says John Gazitua, SVP, Cargo Networks, FedEx Logistics. “Through this agreement, the Freightos Group offers
digital technology that will improve the overall customer experience.”
“Freightos Group is honoured to collaborate with FedEx Logistics to provide an enhanced customer experience,” says Zvi Schreiber, Freightos Group CEO. “Their commitment to providing importers and exporters a seamless shipping experience and exceptional data integrity aligns perfectly with Freightos expertise.
“Our team’s implementation knowledge combined with our rate management system is what sets Freightos Group apart as a leader in digital transformations,” he adds.
