Frequently Asked Questions

How does work?

Marketplaces give buyers the ability to compare multiple providers easily across a variety of metrics – pricing, reliability, performance, and more – rather than researching them one by one. While we are all familiar with the experience in the consumer world with platforms like Expedia, business-to-business (B2B) platforms typically support both finding vendors as well as making it easier to work with the ones you find.

At importers and exporters can instantly compare, book and manage a variety of global freight solutions, whether air or ocean freight across multiple freight forwarders, comparing across parameters like price, transit time, reviews, and more. Once booked, companies can easily manage and pay for all their shipments in one place across multiple providers. Instant comparisons combined with Freightos data and verified reviews means that importers save time on research prior to booking a shipment and save time on coordination during the process.

How are my shipping costs calculated?

To calculate shipping costs on, we consider factors such as shipment weight, dimensions, transport mode, origin, destination, required additional services, like customs clearance, and more.

What are the differences between Freightos and a freight forwarder?

A freight forwarder is a company that manages the logistics of shipping goods from one location to another. is a marketplace that connects shippers across dozens of freight forwarders and carriers. In some cases, Freightos also helps those forwarders connect directly to airlines and ocean liners, ensuring that the results you see are true to the market. We don’t move your freight – but we connect you to providers that do, and allow you to choose the one for you.

Does booking through a digital freight marketplace cost more than booking through a forwarder?

Our marketplace connects importers and exporters to instant comparison across multiple providers, giving them access to more competitive pricing and a wider range of services than they would get with a single provider. While Freightos does take a small percentage from the provider, this is typically far less than providers would pay for advertising, customer acquisition, and customer service, ensuring that rates on Freightos are transparent and competitive.
