March 6, 2021: In a bid to provide a total logistics ecosystem, the Indian logistics e-mall Zipaworld has rolled out the completely automated ocean freight booking platform.

The ocean freight booking platform comes along with the airfreight booking module which facilitates checking prices, online booking, automated documentation, instant invoices, online payment gateways and tracking. Both international and domestic air cargo could be booked through Zipaworld.

Other companies that compete with Zipaworld in the segment of digital ocean freight and air freight booking are AtaFreight and Freightwalla.

Dr Ambrish Kumar, founder, Zipaworld, said, “With the air and ocean freight booking enabled through a single platform, shippers, exporters, manufacturers and other logistics aspirants from every nook and corner of the country can now carry out their logistics requisites virtually and easily.”

1700 TEUs in first year, 12000 TEUs in 5 years
Zipaworld aims at a conversion of more than 1700 TEUs in the first year for ocean imports and exports together for the first year growing to more than 12000 TEUs in the five-year plan.

“We are passionate about our aim to provide a cost-effective, easy-to-use, and transparent platform to the potential lying in the non-urban and the remotest of locations of the country where there is confinement to enter the global arena,” added Kumar.

The portal can be accessed not just by the exporters and shippers within the country, but anyone across the globe with utmost transparency and in their native currency.

Live market rates, products, freight documents
Despite the ongoing capacity issues and consequent sky-rocketing pricing, pertaining to container shortage issues, Zipaworld, has come up with an online ocean freight platform that shows live market rates and multiple booking options, with comparison algorithms. The portal encompasses ocean freight rates to the most traded lanes from various ports in India, connecting the world to the country.

Zipaworld’s ocean platform provides a digital gateway to book all kinds of products, like pharmaceuticals, APIs & medical goods, textiles/ garments, farm produces, perishable goods, automobiles and spares, leather goods, handicrafts, machinery parts, odd and heavy cargo and so on. The freight documents like shipping instructions and bill of lading can be created with ease through the portal, with online payment gateways, and tracking options.

In 2021, Zipaworld has chalked out several plans including connecting the various zip codes of India to electronic vehicles.
