Kontainers to bring e-commerce freight booking to SMEs

Freight software company Kontainers has launched a new Kontainers Essential service, which aims to allow freight forwarders of any size to provide their own-branded SaaS (Software as a Service) E-Commerce system for freight booking.

Essential own-branded systems are free to go live, the company says, and have a transaction charge starting at $10 per FCL (Full Container Load), or less in the case of LCL (Less than Container Load). System upgrades will be provided free of charge, with maintenance and hosting included in the flat transaction based fee.

“We are thrilled to make this significant addition to our suite of software products to serve every size of freight brand, from global to two-person operations,” said Kontainers CEO Graham Parker.

“Our mission has always been to empower every logistics provider on the planet and to help future proof their business to enable them to win in the next decade. Kontainers offers solutions that have no barrier to entry for the almost one million freight and logistics brands globally.”

“Our products are already tried and tested by the largest brands in freight, and next year we already have more than one million bookings contracted to be ‘Powered by Kontainers’ solutions. We believe this product will move the needle further in freight technology and freight brands will quickly use their new API-driven solutions to plug-in brand-new revenue streams that were never before possible.”

The first Essential Alpha users will be on-boarded on the 30th September 2019, the company says.
