The ConsolFreight platform provides access to the most reliable consolidators for any given trade lane for freight forwarders—generating a high-volume of co-loading opportunities, unimaginable transshipment possibilities and collective savings for all participating freight forwarders. It nominates niche consolidators as exclusive operators per trade lane, making the operators more relevant in the market and enabling a far greater market reach for small and medium forwarders. By leveraging the collective volume of all the members in a centralized environment, clients cannot only reach economies of scale that result in incredible savings to all members but also offer their services at a global scale in order to build customer loyalty. “This allows small freight forwarders to share cargo space and costs, and drive better business outcomes,” explains Vila. Additionally, centralized freight purchasing enables ConsolFreight’s clients to gain control over their shipments and benefit from a more strategic freight policy, which facilitates better communication between vendors and carriers. The solution is industry-first to offer dynamic LCL & LTL shipping rates based on the cargo volume. It also keeps a record of every instance of the cargo such as bookings along with displaying the cost of origin and destination—offering visibility and transparency across the whole logistics cycle.
With a sharp focus on customer service, visibility, and transparency, the ConsolFreight platform comes with several built-in tools including Track and Trace, Instant Quote, Contract Management, and much more, providing a comprehensive, pocket-friendly, enterprise-level freight management solution.

Heading toward business expansion, ConsolFreight is currently looking for global partnerships with local influencers in Brazil, China, Singapore and some Caribbean countries who can help with onboarding of new forwarders and consolidators. They are also in search of partnerships in different markets to advance on customer acquisition and develop on other verticals supporting the logistics community. The company remains laser-focused on the connecting fellow freight forwarders who can share cargos and cut overall shipment costs, steering the competition toward better customer service and experience.
