Bidsnship provides a free online marketplace that instantly brings together Shippers who need to ship shipments with reputable logistics providers of their region.
Bidsnship allow shippers to find best freight rates for their shipments. Using Bidsnship, shippers enter origin and destination, dates and quantity to be shipped to get rates. They book the deal they want.
Completely free for Direct Shippers to post shipments and receive bids. Freight Forwarders/Customs Brokers only pay a small matching fee after shipper awarded shipment to them.
Once the shipper awards the shipment and the Forwarder accepts the shipment, Bidsnship shares each party’s contact information with the other party and its role is complete. You arrange payment terms as normally would with a new forwarder or shipper.
Forwarder applicants to bidsnship must have accreditation from various Authorities like IATA, ACCAI etc., Customs Broker applicants to Bidsnship must have valid Customs broker License as per Customs Brokers Licensing Regulations (CBLR), 2013 & Membership of Customs Association of their region.
We recommend that you handle disputes the same way that you do currently. In addition, we offer a feedback system where all parties can leave positive and negative feedback.
We have a community rating system for users to rate other parties based on the quality of service they received. This way you get objective and community based information to help you make the best business decisions while using the platform. We also show you flags relating forwarders accreditations, memberships & awards to help you to decide reliability of Forwarder.
Freight Forwarders Control pricing, NOT Bidsnship. Forwarders enter the rates they want. Shipper will see multiple freight quotes from multiple Forwarders, so it’s important to be competitive.
