Online Documentation: Using Freightwalla’s digital platform, you can easily review and approve your checklist and BLs online, auto-generate & manage required shipping documents, get alerts on follow-up actions, and more. This will help you cut out manual follow-ups, save time, and avoid cost escalation that arises as a result.
Tracking and corrective actions: Traditional offline forwarders do not provide tracking for containers once they have left the port of loading. This means that in case of any delays or issues, it may take as much as a week before the information reaches the shipper and he/she can take corrective actions. Freightwalla automatically tracks your cargo across transportation, customs and freight, and alerts you of trans-shipment updates, changes in shipping plans and key shipment milestones. With tools such as real time tracking, the data of all your ongoing shipments can be fetched within seconds, at any time, and necessary actions can be taken without delays. .

It aims to bring in transparent, less time-consuming, and cost-effective solutions to the country's exporters and importers.
