Get Instant Freight Quotes Online with Cogoport’s Discover Rates Tool

We live in the age of instant gratification. Need lunch? Order takeaway. Like something on Facebook or Instagram? Shop online. Need to get somewhere fast? Call a cab. Almost everything we want is just a click away.

But when it comes to shipping, many SMEs find that freight forwarders take hours or even days to send them freight quotes. All this while their customers wait and shipment dates are taken. Even when the quotes finally arrive, there is usually no transparency. SMEs have no way to ensure if they have been given the most cost-effective deal.

At Cogoport, we decided this had to change.

We have improved our freight discovery tool to help SMEs find and compare freight rates from trusted and verified freight forwarders, instantly.

Meet Discover Rates – our new and improved freight rates discovery tool.

Here’s what it brings you:

  • Fast and mobile-friendly search.
  • Instant results.
  • No unnecessary questions.
  • One screen view of all rates, including add-on services.

How Discover Rates is better

1.All the information you need in seconds: Find and compare multiple freight rates from various port pairs across the world. That’s not all. Also get details about sailing dates, transhipment ports, estimated transit time, free days at the destination port, basic freight cost and total landed cost. You can now send freight quotes to your customer faster. 

2.All your logistics requirements in one place: You need a trucker? No Problem. Customs Clearance? Easy. Seeking Fumigation? We got it covered. Not just port-to-port, find quotes for all your logistics requirements using the ‘Discover Rates’ tool all in one go. 

3.Demand the rate you are looking for: If the rate quoted is too high or if you can’t find a quote that includes your preferred shipping line, don't worry. Use the 'Start Special Rate Request' option to send your requirements to over 600 service providers. You will be sent a personalised quote within six business hours.   


Customer driven improvements 

Cogoport held over 400 conversations with its customers before improving its freight rate discovery search based on their feedback.


“I remember meeting an exporter in Kolkata who shipped textile products to Saudi Arabia. He completely relied on his freight service provider for quotes. He didn’t try to find out if it was more cost-effective for him to send his goods to Nhava Sheva near Mumbai via truck or train and then via container ship to Jeddah OR to ship the consignment directly from Kolkata port. I was shocked to see SMEs like him lacked complete visibility over their costs. I decided we needed a tool that was fast and transparent about costs.”

–  Nishant Dalmia, CTO Cogoport

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
