iContainers reaches 16,000 transported containers
Let us take a moment to let this sink in: Yes, iContainers have moved 16,000 containers globally through our comprehensive digital platform since the company launched in 2008. It’s a great number. Over the course of the past seven years, what started as a crazy dream in Barcelona has translated into reality. We have consolidated a portfolio of over 2,000 companies which use our ocean and air freight services regularly. 16,000 transported containers? Yes, but this only a start!
It’s a fact that the opening of offices in the United States and the recent implementation of door-to-door service between the United States and Spain, have boosted our sales. We expect to triple our business in transportation to and from the United States before the end of this year. And what’s more, we are witnessing a consistent growth in activities related to ocean freight to China and international moving transactions, which currently total 1,500 customers.
To quote Peter Parker, with great power comes great responsibility. So we need to keep working hard and aim for the stars.
Carlos Hernandez, iContainers’ managing director and co-founder, insists:
“Our commitment to continue expanding our network of logistics providers and freight rates offering is rooted in our founding mission to make foreign trade readily accessible with transparency and simplicity of operation. Now, our goal is to continue at the forefront of the freight-forwarding digital revolution while developing a truly global platform that will allow companies to ship everywhere from everywhere”.
iContainers’ 24/7 robust technology platform currently offers real-time quotes for 95% of the destinations in the world. If you haven’t tried it yet, we invite you to do it. You’ll soon notice how our services simplify the whole international shipping process for businesses. Our secret? There’s only a single interlocutor from departure to the final destination.
The iContainers business model is centered on bringing efficiency to the shipping industry while improving and streamlining communication processes among the multiple parties involved in the logistics of cargo transportation: the shipper, the consignee and the carriers, as well as providers of additional services involving customs, storage and international transport insurance.
According to industry statistics, the average response time for freight quote requests is 3 days. iContainers reduces the response time to a maximum of 15 seconds. We are proud of what we’ve achieved so far and are looking forward to improving customer experience as we move ahead!
