The history of Okargo
OKARGO was created in an increasingly complex market climate/environment for sea freight.
Indeed, since globalization, the growing number of rate sheets from shipping companies and the diversity of formats in which these are sent has not simplified the task of comparing forwarders’ offers.
That is why, in April 2014, the OKARGO team, working around Julien CHAPUS, the company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, aimed to develop a tool that would facilitate the management of the sea freight rates of freight forwarders.
Less than a year later, this goal was achieved and in April 2014, Okargo served its first customer in France. After two years spent perfecting and upgrading its service in the country, Okargo set its sights further afield and added three other languages in order to serve clients coming from other countries around the world.
Constantly growing, today Okargo simplifies the daily work of more than 50 sea freight forwarders in 10 different countries: Austria, Belgium, Chile, France, Germany, Italy, South Korea, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.
