Albeit most carriers still accept quote requests via emails, it is likely they will more and more push clients to place requests through their own dedicated quote portals, which allow much faster requests processing thanks to input/content standardization. At OKARGO, we strive to keep abreast of new trends and gradually incorporate direct links to such portals as carriers set them up on their websites. At the present time, our clients can access such a portal of Maersk by clicking on the link displayed alongside the details of a selected Maersk sea freight rate. More carriers are expected to follow suit.
