  • Research shows that only 30% of shipping quotes are provided in 48 hours or less. 14% take over 4 days and over 40% of quote requests are never responded to. What happens when your forwarder does not quote to you in time?1. Your shipments get delayed because you don’t have clarity on the price at which you have to book the container.2. You end up paying higher due to lack of time to negotiate better freights.3. You have to invest time to continuously follow up with multiple forwarders until they quote a low freight to you. Why does the forwarder not quote instantly?1. It is a human tendency to procrastinate work unless triggered by external factors.2. The forwarders take you for granted and feel that they are obligated to get the business because they know that you are dependent on them.3. There is no competitiveness as they are not aware of their quote’s standing. There is no incentive for them to re work and give a lower quote.

  • GoComet helps clients to save cost on international freight while reducing time and effort by automating freight procurement. The platform not only eases the day to day tasks of your vendors but also enables them to quote competitive rates continuously. The two processes are linked after all! The only metric to win a bid is merit! GoComet provides a transparent platform for all forwarders to compete fairly for every client enquiry. The forwarder is aware while quoting that the client is only interacting with him and other participants on the platform and nowhere else. This makes the bidding fair, eliminating the possibility of any under hand tactics. Such a scenario gives the forwarder confidence that the only metric to win business is merit. Hence, the best and lowest possible quotes are worked out from forwarder’s side increasing scope of savings for client. Why does your forwarder quote lower on the platform? The participants are aware at all times about their ranking for all enquiries enabling them to rework, reduce margins and bag more business. In order to update quotes on the platform, they don’t need to input rates again and again. The platform is intelligent and allows auto copying of previous rates for a similar port or auto filling shipping line charges by inputting name of the liner.
