The CargoSwApp application allows the shipping line operator to search for available cargo waiting for transport and to send a bid to the cargo owner. If the cargo owner accepts the bid, the shipping line operator receives the booking directly in CargoSwApp. He can then assess each booking with respect to the probability of cancellation and thus make it easier to use overbooking in a more effective manner.
CargoSwApp has also been extended with functionalities for cargo owners, namely the possibility to search the marketplace via CargoSwApp for transport services and to benchmark the services offered by various shipping lines.
The intention with CargoSwApp is that searching for transport services and cargo is based on real time information on available capacities and available cargo. CargoSwApp allows for immediate information exchange between the cargo owner and the carrier.
