iContainers, the leading online freight forwarder covering over 100,000 trade routes, is pleased to announce that it has reached the figure of 16,000 containers moved globally through its comprehensive digital platform since the company launched in 2008. Over the course of the past seven years, the Barcelona-born freight startup has consolidated a portfolio of over 2,000 companies using their ocean and air freight services regularly.
The opening of offices in the United States and the recent implementation of door-to-door ocean freight services between the United States and Spain, have boosted sales for the freight forwarder which expects to triple its business in transportation to and from the United States during the year. In addition, the company has seen consistent growth in activities related to imports from China and international moving transactions, which currently total 1,500 customers.
“Our commitment to continue expanding our network of logistics providers and freight rates offering is rooted in our founding mission to make foreign trade readily accessible with transparency and simplicity of operation,” said Carlos Hernandez, iContainers managing director and co-founder.
The company’s 24/7 robust technology platform currently offers real-time quotes for 95% of the destinations in the world. Their services simplify the international shipping process for businesses since there’s only a single interlocutor from departure to the final destination.
