The story behind our sea freight calculator

Carlos and Ivan, two young employees at a customs agency, had just lost a customer who came around looking for an instant freight quote. Because it was the end of a working day on Friday, the earliest they could obtain it was the following Monday.

Unacceptable for the client, Carlos and Ivan lost the deal.

That sparked a mission: to create an online tool to facilitate the ocean freight quoting and booking process.

With that, the iContainers ocean freight calculator was born.
