The complete process is electronically recorded and documented in a transparent and intuitive way.
Thanks to the online form of today’s freight exchanges, users can easily specify their searches depending on their current needs, regardless of where they are. All offers are published in real time which ensures their constant up-to-date status. The websites are mostly present in numerous countries and languages which facilitates international communication and secures a wider range of customers.
