According to the vendor, the tool improves the day-to-day duties of individuals involved in processes related to ad hoc shipments, including logistics, sales and customer service. Launched in 2014, Cargobase provides shippers with real-time procurement, tracking, payment, analytics and compliance tools. The company’s shipment dashboard previously allowed shippers and service providers to share shipment information such as documents, flight updates, milestones and regular communications. The new feature provides the ability to grant access to non-Cargobase users through an e-mail invitation. Ad hoc freight is any freight service that falls outside the regular, pre-planned supply chain, usually procured through a spot-buy process.
