Increasing automation is a clear priority in the ocean shipping business and carriers, as the major players, are no exception. One after another they are creating online portals, where freight forwarders can look up rates any time instantly. Moreover, they also offer the possibility of automatically exchanging data with external systems through a standardized interface such as API (Advanced Programming Interface). OKARGO launched a dedicated project aimed at connecting its online tool with the quoting portals of major carriers and now this is beginning to bear fruit. OKARGO is now connected with the Maersk/Safmarine portals and our clients can now see both the rates processed by OKARGO and the spot rates obtained through an automated API query from the quoting portal. Furthermore, connection with the portals of Hapag-Lloyd and CMA CGM have been undergoing final tests and will soon be available to OKARGO users as well.
