CHAPEL HILL, NC: CargoSphere, cloud-based global rate management solution and confidential Rate Mesh for the ocean and air transportation and logistics industries, announces that SEKO Logistics, a global supply chain and logistics management company, has successfully implemented CargoSphere’s solution.
SEKO personnel across Asia, U.S., Europe and Latin America are currently using the CargoSphere system for rate searches, quoting, self-publishing of FMC (Federal Maritime Commission) tariffs and management reporting. In addition, SEKO receives ocean rates from numerous neutral NVOCCs (non-vessel operating common carriers) over CargoSphere’s secure and confidential Rate Mesh network.
Jose Quesada, Vice President, ocean services, SEKO Logistics, says, “SEKO’s 2014 strategy, which includes CargoSphere, has resulted in year over year growth of 28 percent. We’re winning more business due to fast quoting and the integrity of the data. Our entire global group is empowered with the ability to quickly and easily access standardized freight rates through our CargoSphere system.”
Previously, SEKO was emailing tariff filings to their outsourced FMC tariff-filing vendor responded with TLI (tariff line item) numbers required for shipment documentation processing. But now, self-filing of FMC tariffs is accelerating this vital freight processing requirement providing SEKO with greater control and faster, streamlined documentation and FMC filing management.
“We are thrilled SEKO is strengthening their service offerings and achieving greater efficiency, customer acquisition and revenue growth with CargoSphere. We are delighted that our rate solution could be seamlessly plugged-in to their pricing operations and play an important role in SEKO’s global vision,” says Neil Barni, President of CargoSphere.
