Shipwise takes the pain out of booking freight shipments and makes it as easy as booking a trip. Shipwise streamlines the process and eliminates the numerous emails and phone calls, automating the reservations process by providing direct access to capacity and transparent billing.
In 45 days our team completed MVP development project with Ruby on Rails. We created client interface that allows creating inquiries for multimodal container shipments. Business proposals submitted from several logistics providers. Proposed prices and conditions are different and depend on the route, the types of shipments and type of cargo. These prices are shown to the customer in the comparative table in order to simplify selection of the best proposal. Shipment starts after the customer books optimal proposal. Since then, the client gets online information about cargo location (tracking map “Track and trace”), notifications upon arrival or departure at different checkpoints like ports and warehouses. The service alarms the client in case of emergency. MVP included functionality for electronic document exchange. This option was needed to provide scans and certificates for shipment clearance procedures. The last but not least feature was billing and invoicing via email in XLS and PDF formats.
