Global Trade Goes Digital
Freight forwarders and shippers can book sea, land, and air cargo shipments to and from anywhere in the world with the rollout of DP World's online logistics tools and services. The company accelerated the launch to help shippers navigate the COVID-19 crisis and keep trade—particularly essential food and medical supplies—flowing.
The new digital trade and logistics platforms use DP World's global network of ports, terminals, and economic zones to offer end-to-end supply chain services. The initiative follows DP World's acquisition of SeaRates.com, LandRates.com, and AirRates.com, platforms that enable shippers to transport cargo worldwide.
DP World also created the Digital Freight Alliance, an online association that brings freight forwarders onto one platform, giving them access to new tools, routes, and services.
