DP World’s SeaRates has connected with C P World to assist digitise global commerce and give additional options for smaller cargo owners and freight forwarders operating globally.
The integration will reportedly help customers who move less than a full container load to enjoy streamlined logistics, real-time information, and improved efficiency through SeaRates.
Based in Singapore, C P World operates globally, providing logistics services with air, ocean, and land transportation, as well as documentation and customs clearance.
As a neutral cargo consolidator, it specialises in logistics for small and medium sized businesses that may not require an entire container for their cargos.
With this integration, SeaRates aims to provide customers with enhanced real-time container availability and pricing information, allowing shippers to compare rates across a broader range of carriers.
By optimising container space and efficiently consolidating Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments, SeaRates enables cost savings for shippers while contributing to a more sustainable global supply chain.
Mike Bhaskaran, COO of Digital Technology, DP World said: “As a leader in supply chain logistics and technology, we are excited to expand our offerings for SMEs, startups and individuals who require access to international trade.
“This new partnership will provide SeaRates customers with access to exclusive ocean freights and schedules in over 30 countries, allowing them to book LCL shipments through the online platform,” Bhaskaran added.
Ken Chiang, Group CEO of C P World, added: “As a neutral, market leading ocean freight consolidator, C P World is excited to partner with SeaRates, DP World to offer comprehensive LCL ocean freight rates, schedules and services thereby digitalising freight and creating sustainable solutions.”
In May 2023, it was reported that DP World had cut direct carbon emissions from its global operations by 5 per cent in 2022, according to its latest Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) report, reflecting progress towards its 2040 carbon neutral target.
