Freightbro Elite- Deliver An Exceptional Freight Forwarding Experience

The industry has thrived despite these inefficiencies and somehow managed to work its way around with interim solutions. Ironically, despite the wave of digitization being ubiquitous across all other industries, freight forwarding still seems to be playing catch up with technology.

Digitization in logistics is hitting an inflexion point. Forwarders who have identified this, are starting to capitalize on the right technology that eliminates these inefficiencies, by digitizing the entire freight process. At a juncture where digital forwarders in the industry have made competition for traditional players very stiff, it is important to identify the need for technology enablers. FreightBro believes that no forwarder should be bereft of reaping the benefits of digital transformation irrespective of any reason – size of the company, cost, lack of awareness or inaccessibility to technology. Democratization of technology is of paramount importance considering the current industry scenario and must be a means to level the competitive playing field.

THE MAJOR INDUSTRY PROBLEM

® Complicated Rate Management involving numerous file and data formats, multiple email chains especially between procurement function of a freight forwarding organization and carrier.

® Delay in quoting- Cluttered communication across emails, messaging apps and phone calls between sales and procurement makes quote lifecycle longer leading to opportunity loss. Clear insight into quote status, whether quotes were acknowledged and responded timely, whether quotes were were won or lost (with feedback) is lacking.

® Lack of Sales Performance Data – Consequently, visibility into sales personnel performance metrics like enquiries received, quotes sent, conversion and revenue pipeline is lacking on a real time basis, which disables management from taking data based decisions

Connecting India With Multi-Modal Logistics

Today, logistics cost in India accounts for 13-17 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which is nearly double (6-9 percent) the logistics cost to GDP ratio in developed countries such as the US, Hong Kong and France. Much of these escalating costs are due to the absence of efficient intermodal and multimodal transport systems. But with the government giving infrastructure status to the logistics sector, development of multimodal transport networks and initiatives to set up industrial corridors and logistics parks, a massive transformation of the country’s logistics landscape is underway.

It wasn't always this way. We were not so often the headline. Our elders' safety was not a cause célèbre. We weren't even sure that we were a "we"-can so many people with so little in common say that? Still, there were a few shared things. Cooking ingredients, tropes we were sick of. And when the attacks first started in early 2020, we found we shared another: a terrible feeling of dread.
