ExFreight Launches Pioneering Digital Air Freight Service

ExFreight | March 03, 2022

ExFreight continues to lead the transportation industry with innovative online technology for shippers and transportation providers. ExFreight's newly launched instant, dynamic air freight rating and carrier booking functionality is a game-changing advancement within the sphere of air freight shipping. This latest release expands the existing digital functionality of ExFreight's instant rating, booking, and map-based tracking platform for trucking, ocean freight, and air freight services.

Shippers can now obtain an instant air freight shipping quote rate across multiple carriers with real-time visibility of flight details and available capacity. Options can be sorted by price, transit time, and reliability. Bookings and space can be secured immediately via a direct connection with the respective carrier's air cargo management system along with receipt of space confirmation.

This new functionality is the next step in the ongoing evolution of ExFreight's best of breed digital freight system. By applying advanced technology to time sensitive air freight shipping, customers are able to realize supply-chain efficiencies while avoiding antiquated methodologies of traditional freight forwarders. The days of sending email back and forth with a freight forwarder for a singular air freight rate and attempted booking are now over.

No other transportation provider within the industry is able to provide instant door to door international air freight rates with multiple carrier and routing options coupled with space confirmations. This is augmented with up-front carrier reliability ratings, carbon emission estimates and the optional addition of cargo insurance.

Lastly, shippers are able to login to a central dashboard to access active shipment, carbon footprint, billing, and quote history reporting. On an individual shipment basis, highly detailed information is provided that shows every step of the shipment plan and process throughout the cargo journey.

Our existing system functionality has been enhanced once again to provide shippers with a valuable tool to facilitate their supply-chain needs. Utilization of our online system continues to provide a distinct competitive advantage to our customers and partners."

CEVA Selects Overhaul as Partner to Bolster North American Supply Chain Security

prnewswire | March 27, 2023

Overhaul, a software-based supply-chain visibility, risk, compliance, and insurance solution for the world's leading brands, has been selected by CEVA Logistics, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) provider, as its partner in improving and optimizing real-time cargo visibility and security for high-value goods. As cargo volumes increase and the capacity crunch continues to strain the global supply chain it causes freight to sit, making it vulnerable to theft. To help protect this freight, Overhaul's end-to-end solution will provide CEVA proactive, real-time risk alerts on every shipment. If the shipments move off course, the platform has the ability to lock down cargo for an added layer of security. An early lock down exit initiates an instant escalation to Overhaul's proprietary LE Connect network for recovery. "The Global supply chain is continuously being tested, resulting in roadblocks and delays along each step of the journey," said Jim McDonald, VP of Security, North America, at CEVA Logistics. "Risk management is more critical now than ever. The real-time transparency and insight Overhaul provides is critical to further strengthening the integrity of our supply chain operations." In the event an in-transit theft was to occur, Overhaul's Intelligence and Response team will help aid in the recovery of lost cargo. The Intelligence and Response team leverages LE Connect to send pertinent shipment details, location tracking, and more via a secure link to law enforcement, facilitating the successful retrieval of stolen goods. "While cargo theft has always been a problem, it has intensified at an alarming rate within certain commodities on the heels of the pandemic as thieves capitalize on supply shortages and target high-value goods and other hot commodities," said Barry Conlon, CEO of Overhaul. "The monetary losses from theft, along with the danger to drivers and the impact on a 3PL provider's reputation if goods don't make it to the end destination, make strengthening supply chain vulnerabilities critical. As thieves grow increasingly sophisticated, 3PLs must employ a multi-layered approach to secure their cargo and ensure product integrity. This includes leveraging the latest technology to prevent and mitigate losses and we are proud to report that in such a short timeframe, our work with CEVA has already netted positive outcomes for their global customers." About Overhaul Founded in 2016 and with offices around the world, Overhaul is the only device-agnostic supply chain visibility and risk management software company. As the global leader in in-transit supply chain risk management, Overhaul transforms real-time visibility into risk management, compliance, and insurance solutions for its partners.
