- Freight Comparison from Cranes to Tigers

Share Article, the New Freight Comparison Site has been developed by Freight Users, for Freight Users to speed up and simplify how Freight Quotes are received. Recognising the popularity of Comparison sites in other industry sectors todays 6,000+ registered users can search for import and export services to and from the UK

“Obtaining and providing quotes can be such a slow and time-consuming business for both the buyer and seller of freight services so the idea of producing a price comparison website was easy. Paul Wilson, Co Founder of, the independent freight comparison site, was developed by Freight Users for Freight Users. Shippers enter their shipment details online and can access instant results from a wide range of different Freight Companies providing Air, Sea and Road Freight options. Sites exist where Shippers receive emailed quotations or quotes from specific Freight Companies, but http://www.cargo-solv is unique in offering an instant independent multi modal comparison.

Frustrated that the length of time it took to receive freight quotes was harming their export sales, Founders Howard Mould and Paul Wilson recognised the potential in developing a Freight Comparison site along the lines of those gaining popularity in other sectors. The site took 2 years to develop and has undergone lengthy testing for the past 12 months.

Todays 6,000+ registered users cover a far broader cross section than was originally anticipated, with both large and small companies as well as individuals eager to access Freight Quotes that may offer lower costs or shorter more frequent delivery times. The site covers imports and exports to and from the UK and whilst is constantly looking to increase the routes and services it covers, it is currently able to offer solutions to 73% of enquiries. Not all are straightforward however as shown by some of the Freight Enquiries has received during the past 12 months:-
"How can I ship a 40" Crane from the UK to Saudi Arabia?"
"I need to import 50,000 tonnes of Cement from Nigeria to Italy.....each month!"
"Can you ship my car from the Cayman Islands to the Phillipines?"
"We run a zoo in the North of England and need to ship a live Tiger from Russia, can you help?"

Not everyone will have such diverse requirments, but firmly believe they can help Freight Users speed up and simplify the way in which they receive freight quotes that might ultimately benefit rather than harm their domestic and export sales efforts.
