So you are shipping from abroad with some extra space in your cargo box or package of which you would still pay for anyway, whether full or otherwise. OR you are a freight consolidator and you need more cargo to fill up some extra cargo space before vessel gate closes for receiving containers. Those are but a few of the global shipping and logistic challenges which lyris KO’s “SWIFTLY SHIPPING APP” seeks to address.
The app which was launched a few days ago at the coconut grove hotels in Ghana attracted some great attendance and reviews from industry players with very high hopes of the app’s success.
The modus operandi of this ingenuous app is quiet simple and basic as it seeks to bring cargo owners (no matter how small the cargo) together with consolidators, transporters or even travelers. All a cargo or parcel owner needs to do is to log on and list the particular cargo he/she wishes to transport/ship. An individual shipping to same location would also state his/her intentions to carry cargo. That’s it, the app connects the two for further transactions to take place.
Whiles the app works seamlessly to enable easy identification of cargo for freight consolidators, it is also ideal for individual travelers or shippers who want to make some extra income by making their unused cargo space available to other potential cargo or small parcel owners.
The App is currently available on all android and IOS platforms and it’s absolutely free of charge which can be used anywhere in the world. Even though launched in Ghana the app has a global touch and it’s a typical example of “acting local but thinking global”
