| ||The organization of each transportation is usually performed in "manual mode" using a huge number of phone calls and e-mails between cargo owners, forwarding agents and carriers. By our estimates, the share of modern logistic IT services in the organization of freight transportation does not exceed 4% of a total quantity of runs and the most part of these services is limited to work in the B2C-sector which is not requiring deep examination and understanding of specifics of cargo logistics of large cargo owners. Founders of Expeditor.Pro have wide and successful experience of logistics management in a B2B-segment and created service for B2B-customers with the most difficult logistic models — the CEO of Expeditor.pro Igor Prokhin reported.|| |
