FreightBro, a freight technology start-up, has launched a dedicated app to optimize the freight forwarding process, save time and increase efficiency. The user-friendly app has features to discover global rates and schedules instantly, create instant quotes and monitor activity, accept bookings online, manage shipment life cycle and track cargo at a single touch of the screen. The app can be downloaded via the App Store and Google Play.
With the launch of the app, FreightBro is aiming to simplify the complexities of the logistics industry using technology to empower freight forwarders with a digital platform that can potentially increase their sales by 30% while reducing 70% of their quotation turnaround time and costs by 50%.
Founded in October 2016, FreightBro was started by Raghavendran Viswanathan (5+ years of previous work experience with Panalpina and DHL), Mohammed Zakkiria A (14+ years of experience having worked at DHL, Damco, Panalpina and Cargo Partner) and Anand V Babu (25+ years of experience working at AP Moller Maersk Group and APM Terminals). In May 2018, FreightBro raised seed round of funding from Suresh Kumar, former Global CIO of Bank of New York Mellon.
