Quotiss.com is On the Mission to Help Traditional Freight Forwarders Become Digital

HONG KONG, CHINA - RIAUONEcom, -  8 January, 2018 - The freight industry is one of the largest and most important industries in the world. With 150 million containers shipped annually around the globe, it acts as the life blood circulation for the economy. But despite the industry's size and importance, the commercial aspect of this business still runs in traditional ways -- offline and manual.

There are many startups who try to revolutionize 'ancient' industry. Business models like 'freight marketplace' and 'digital freight forwarder' are funded with millions of dollars. Question is, will freight forwarders be replaced with online services in the near time?

Comparing forwarding business with other industries, which have recently been 'uberized' or digitized, its worth to mention that forwarding is much more complex than hotel booking or an airline ticket purchasing process. Imagine if every hotel would also be in charge of arranging visas, passing through immigration control, security check and a taxi ride for each tourist globally -- would it still be so easy to book a hotel online with a couple of clicks?

Nevertheless, the technology which helps streamline complex logistics processes is already here: electronic communication, big data analysis, transport management systems, etc.

Early adopters are already enjoying the benefits: becoming faster, more flexible and cost-efficient. There is a visible pressure from the digitized forwarders towards their traditional competitors.

It's becoming obvious, that a "regular" forwarder will soon need to find ways to be on par with the digital world.

Container shipping is one of the least digitized segments of all transport services. Managing sea freight contracts is a well known technical challenge, which keeps some freight forwarders stuck in the pre-technological era.

Marcin Zarzecki, CEO of Quotiss says:

"Complex rate contracts, massive spreadsheets, hundreds of emails and PDFs bring frustration to industry players, consume massive resources and destroys business efficiency. No one has found a sustainable solution. Until Quotiss."

Quotiss has united a team of industry professionals and became a successful startup supported by Techstars Ventures and Google for Entrepreneurs. They managed to solve the problem of complex rate sheets and decode the rates. A smart algorithm, which translates the longest contracts into a simple one-liner, has become the backbone of the Quotiss software.

Once the carriers' contracts are simplified and uploaded into the system, the quoting process becomes fully automated. With all the freight rates, local charges and quotes being stored on one platform, freight forwarders can have full transparency into their commercial activities: rates procurement, profitability, the efficiency of sales teams. All data is stored in one place, no more searching through multiple folders and emails.

"Modern technology used to be available only for the big players with massive resources. But this is changing. Medium and small-sized forwarders start adopting instruments like Quotiss.com and, thus, learn to compete with efficiency and not just the rate." -- says Eugene Reznikov, Quotiss Hong Kong. (MOR).
