Freightgate Releases Customer Self-Service Center Module Supporting NVOCC Negotiated Rate Agreements
Press release date: February 13, 2013
NRAs are written and binding arrangements between a shipper and a licensed NVOCC to provide specific transportation service for a stated cargo quantity, from origin to destination, on and after a stated date or within a defined time frame. If an NVOCC uses NRAs it does not have to publish these rates in the tariff it makes available to the public. This is a strategic advantage for NVOCCs to offer shippers spot ocean shipping rates; and shippers to gain a competitive market edge while lowering their transportation spend.
“We are particularly proud of the elegant fusion of quote acceptance and booking this module creates;” say Martin Hubert, President and CEO at Freightgate, “it harnesses modern Web technology to provide a great user experience and make NRA compliance a breeze”.

The module correlates quotations, acceptance of quotation, assigned a unique NRA-Quote number, booking confirmation, assures proper application of rates and surcharges, updating status, and record keeping requirements. It maintains NRA history in a secure database.
