SEKO to use CargoSphere for rate management

   The third party logistics services provider SEKO Logistics has begun using the cloud-based global rate management solution provider CargoSphere’s confidential Rate Mesh product for ocean and air freight, the company said Tuesday.
   More than 100 SEKO personnel in Asia, U.S., Europe and Latin America are using CargoSphere’s system for rate searches, quoting, self-publishing of Federal Maritime Commission tariffs, and management reporting. SEKO also receives ocean rates from numerous neutral non-vessel operating common carriers over CargoSphere’s confidential Rate Mesh network.
   Prior to CargoSphere, SEKO emailed tariff filings to their outsourced FMC tariff-filing vendor, who then responded with tariff line item numbers required for shipment documentation processing.
   “SEKO’s 2014 strategy, which includes CargoSphere, has resulted in year-over-year growth of 28 percent,” said Jose Quesada, vice president of ocean services at SEKO Logistics. “We’re winning more business due to fast quoting and the integrity of the data. Our entire global group is empowered with the ability to quickly and easily access standardized freight rates through our CargoSphere system. Before CargoSphere, we were regionalized and depended on a great deal of communication. Now, we’re centralized and transparent as an ocean product in our global organization.”
