It should be easier for customers in the shipping and logistics industry to calculate shipping prices on freight in order to find the best possible price. And former Maersk employees are now looking to provide this service through their new company Transporteca, writes Danish newspaper Børsen. The company is an online platform which gathers data and offers transparent prices on freight from A to B for both the industry and customers, explains CEO Morten Find Lærkholm, who believes that the transport industry is far behind other industries such as avation.
"It may well be that the immediate contact with a customer is done through a website. But behind it, people approach it manually. You'll see two to three business days before the customer gets a price, if they even get back to the customer," he says to the newspaper.
