Organise capacity

Arrange ships with capacity radar and marketplace

Arrange capacity by offering freight on the digital marketplace. Choose whether you offer the freight to all barges, a favorite group of barges or logistics service providers. Our platform generates notifications that are sent to the most suitable barges. This way you get the most suitable responses and you make the best deal.

Proactively searching for available barges can be done using the capacity radar. Approach relevant available barges with your transport needs. Do you also want to reach barges that have not submitted an availability report? That’s possible! Offer your cargo on the marketplace and we make sure that the most suitable barges receive a notification.
