WorldBridge Logistics adds CargoSphere rate technology service capabilities
OCT 23, 2014: CargoSphere announced that WorldBridge Logistics has enhanced its technology infrastructure with implementation of the CargoSphere system. WorldBridge has added CargoSphere’s rate management platform and Rate Mesh network. CargoSphere was selected given that it’s easy-to-use, maintain and allows WorldBridge to compare rates and transit times from their own carrier contracts, as well as rates from trusted agent partners, such as the NCBFAA-SA and co-loaders. With this capability, they can now more quickly generate customized customer quotes, measure their quoting success and failure rates, and keep track of open quotes.
“The CargoSphere Cloud-based Rate Mesh enables us to quickly and easily include contract rates from established agent partners in our comparisons,” said Andreas Ritchie, Director of Procurement, V. Alexander & Co., Inc. “In the future, our hope is that eventually carriers will offer the option to upload contract amendments directly into CargoSphere. We’d also like to pursue Rate Mesh connections with our primary agents abroad for faster data exchange.”
The CargoSphere implementation also includes WorldBridge self-managing ocean carrier contracts and amendments with CargoSphere’s SUDS (smart upload and diagnostic solution) solution and self-publishing FMC tariff rates - all in the CargoSphere system for greater efficiency and processing ease.
Neil Barni, president of CargoSphere, said, “The importance of technology to a logistics service provider’s business is critical today. Technology levels the playing field enabling companies such as WorldBridge to deliver more timely, effective and accurate customer interactions and great operational controls to advance their business. We’re extremely pleased to be working with WorldBridge Logistics and have them achieving 24/7 collaboration with their agent and neutral NVO partners in the Rate Mesh. This advancement allows them to differentiate the services they deliver.”
