Product/Service Summary

Freightwalla is technology-enabled freight forwarding marketplace that helps small business owners and logistics managers seamlessly plan, book, and manage their international shipments.

The FF industry is a largely unorganised market with 80% of the industries shipments being handled by small-time freight forwarders. This brings a lot of issues with poor service levels, opacity in pricing, wasted time & leakages due to processes being manually managed.

Through freightwalla's innovative platform, our customers can:
1. Shave days off their costing and planning efforts,
2. can instantly compare rates & services from a number of different providers based on their requirements (e.g. cost, time),
3. can effortlessly manage & track their shipments via mobile apps, notifications, and automation of key processes.
