In fact, its operation is provided by a specially developed and carefully configured set of programmes, in other words, a forwarding engine. It can apply to our network of logistics partners’ systems around the world in real time and obtains up-to-date rates in order to build the optimal route by various types of transport, if necessary, with the involvement of several types.
For each specific cargo, the algorithm brings together various mechanisms for calculating rates (per kg, tonne, cube, container, etc.) in different types of transportation (road, sea, air, rail).
