iContainers Launches Door-to-Door Ocean Freight Services
Miami-based freight forwarder closes $1.4 Million Series B funding.

iContainers (www.iContainers.com), an online freight forwarder offering instant quotes, booking worldwide and logistics assistance, announces the launch of door-to-door ocean freight services for imports, exports and overseas moves between the United States and Spain.

The announcement propels iContainers, which provides door-to-port services from the U.S. and Spain to anywhere in the world including FCL and LCL shipping, passed online competitors. In 2014, the company reported 4000 international shipments.

The new door-to-door service (/us/door-to-door/) gives customers the ability to book shipments as easily as they would send a package overnight, without worrying about pickups, paperwork and delivery. iContainers will extend the service throughout Europe and Latin America by 2016.

“This new online service is much like what FedEx does with letters and packages. We can ship from any zip code in the U.S. to any zip code in Spain, something no other company in the industry can do online,” said Carlos Hernandez, iContainers managing director and co-founder. “Our customers don’t need to hire a shipping broker or another intermediary to manage logistics.”

iContainers was founded in Barcelona, Spain in 2008 and opened a U.S. headquarters in Miami in the third quarter of 2013. The company provides instant air and ocean freight quotes online from top shipping lines and carriers with nearby port cost comparisons.

iContainers targets SMEs and individuals who have limited logistics infrastructure and experience with overseas shipping. Currently, customers can book their cargo, acquire insurance, customize their incoterms, manage multiple shipments and do all their documentation at iContainers.com.

In February, iContainers announced $1.4 million in Series B funding, accelerating the company’s growth. The venture capital firms of Kibo Ventures and Vitamina K, as well as GrupoRomeu, among the largest logistics company in Spain, led the investment.

“We developed technology to simplify the reservation process of overseas shipping while eliminating hidden charges and bringing transparency to the shipping industry,” Hernandez said.
