Global Forwarder, M.E. Dey, Adopts CargoSphere Frictionless Rate Networking

CargoSphere Technology Facilitates Real-Time Access to Partner, NVO and Carrier Contract Freight Rates

CHAPEL HILL, NC--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2016) -  CargoSphere, the leading provider of frictionless rate networking and cloud-based global freight rate management, today announces that M.E. Dey & Co., Inc., a global freight forwarder and customs broker, has implemented the CargoSphere rate platform. With Cargosphere, M.E. Dey has a single database of systematized freight rates which allows them to access their direct carrier contract rates, and rates from 3 NVOs, the NCBFAA-SA, and their Asian global partners to quickly and accurately create branded quotes for customers. The NVO and partner rates are published in CargoSphere's Cloud-based Rate Mesh, a connected network of industry parties that receive and distribute freight rates confidentially online, anytime day or night.

"The CargoSphere Rate Mesh allows us to access up-to-date rates online, which is fast and timely. Before CargoSphere we often would wait 24 hours to receive rates from our partner in China. It's great that our quote turn-time is now timelier for customers," said Sarah Azar, Project Manager, Certified Customs Specialist, M.E. Dey & Co., Inc.

"CargoSphere's aim is to continue developing solutions that provide a frictionless rate experience for global shipping, one that works simply and doesn't hold business back. Integrated technology that enables companies like M.E. Dey to quote faster, more accurately and collaborate more effectively with industry partners online and in real-time delivers immeasurable value to all shipping parties," said Neil Barni, president of CargoSphere. 

Prior to the CargoSphere deployment, M.E. Dey was paying a third party to publish their FMC tariffs. They now reduce that cost by self-publishing FMC tariffs with the CargoSphere platform. This integration provides a more efficient and seamless way for M.E. Dey to share this important shipping information.
