Need a particular carrier, extra destination free days or a better rate?
The “Start Special Rate Request” option is designed to help you negotiate and customise the best freight rates for your shipment, preferably with the shipping line of your choice.
Just as you would negotiate for better rates and prices with a traditional freight forwarder or service provider, Cogoport’s Special Rate Request feature helps you do the same on an online platform.
Special Rate Request in 5 easy steps
Click on Discover Rates on the navigation bar to your left.
In the search field on your right, pick your shipping option and enter the origin port, destination port, container size/type/commodity/weight, container count and incoterms. Our intuitive drop-down lists make this process super easy. Now, hit search.
Explore instant freight rates and quotes from various shipping lines, along with transit times, stops if any, and free detention days. If you need something more specific to your business, such as extra destination free days, a specific shipping line, or a filed rate (a contracted rate applicable for a fixed period of time), then click on Start Special Rate Request on the bottom right of your page.
The Create Enquiry box pops up. Fill in the required fields, including your preferred freight rate, shipping line and free detention days at destination. Click on Submit Your Requirements and you’re set.
You’ll receive a personalised quote within six business hours.
Simple, isn’t it? Our Special Rate Request feature is not just about personalised quotes. It is about empowering importers and exporters and giving them greater control and say over how they ship their goods and what they pay for it. And, as we mentioned earlier, it’s about helping them save both time and money.
So, start requesting special rates from verified and trusted freight forwarders for your cargo today.
