What tools/software do freight forwarders use most often to facilitate their activities


I wonder what digital tools the freight forwarders use to support their operations and for what purpose?


Hello Aydin,

Freight forwarders use digital tools like Transportation Management Systems (TMS) to plan, execute, and optimize the movement of goods. They utilize Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) for real-time exchange of documents and information with carriers and customs. Additionally, forwarders deploy track-and-trace platforms for real-time shipment visibility and monitoring. I also know that they use solutions for Demurrage/Detention calculations
