CargoSphere supports Livingston’s expansion


CargoSphere, a cloud-based global rate management solution and confidential Rate Mesh for the ocean and air transportation and logistics industries, has announced Livingston International’s commitment to a longterm contract to support expansion of their global freight forwarding and NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) business areas.

The last few years, Livingston has grown through acquisition of over five logistics service provider companies. By centralising their quoting/RFQ (request for quotes) process with the CargoSphere system, Livingston enhances quoting accuracy and response times to customers and streamlines sales submission of rate requests to pricing. This agreement includes plans to integrate the CargoSphere system within Livingston’s other core systems and self-publishing of FMC tariffs.

Livingston benefits from the added collaboration and efficiency achieved with Rate Mesh, which eliminates static files and email rate sharing for CargoSphere’s Cloud-based rate sharing network. Livingston receives confidential freight rate contracts over the Rate Mesh from neutral NVOs, agent partners, and associations directly into their internal pricing system with no delay or need for rekeying rate data.

The CargoSphere reporting and analytics features allow Livingston to assess response time on quotes, rates accepted, lanes quoted and win rates, and to continuously improve their results. “Logistics technology is a key differentiator today for freight forwarders. CargoSphere is the engine that enables companies like Livingston International to quote more deals, increase accuracy and collaborate more effectively with shipping partners,” said Neil Barni, president of CargoSphere.
