UASC and SEKO Logistics Implement CargoSphere Rate Technology

UASC and SEKO Logistics Implement CargoSphere Rate Technology

CargoSphere announced that UASC, along with their customer SEKO Logistics, have implemented a direct CargoSphere rate technology connection to accelerate the distribution of frequently changing Asia-Europe freight rates. This speedy way to quote customers helps to eliminate friction in a carrier’s rate distribution model, which in turn helps drive growth and booking volumes.

UASC’s vision is to increase the value it offers customers by electronically distributing rate pricing to customers in real-time, directly into their rate database, so rates are ready to use immediately. It works by UASC uploading global tariffs and surcharges with CargoSphere’s Smart Tariff, and their base rates and contract specific surcharges with CargoSphere’s SUDS (Smart Upload and Diagnostic Solution) into their private, neutral CargoSphere application. Accurate, current UASC pricing data from their CargoSphere application is shared confidentially via CargoSphere’s Rate Mesh, a connected, online one-to-one sharing network.  This allows customers like SEKO Logistics easy access to UASC’s pricing in their rate database for timely quoting.

“Our goal is to lead with an advanced technology infrastructure that adds substantial value for our customers.  With CargoSphere, we are eliminating many steps in distributing rate updates which is enabling us to more quickly make rates visible to our customers, which benefits our customers as well as working to our advantage,” said Eric B. Williams, Vice President, Global Head of Sales & Marketing at UASC.
