SeaRates Updates - Week 52, 2020
There are some interesting features on the platform this week. We have also optimised a few of the existing elements.
Thank you for your feedback and letters as it helps us make the products flawless and change the global approach to cargo transportation.
In case you missed our previous updates, you can read them here.
Logistics Explorer is a platform with a search filter that allows you to find the delivery cost of any cargo for any mode of transport from point A to point B. You can place your booking online in just a few clicks.
We have also updated our filter on the homepage this week. You can now quickly find the rates, countries and ports for your shipment.
This filter can also be embedded in your website. Potential clients will intuitively understand that the filter can calculate the tariffs for transportation. They will also be able to place their bookings online.
This week, we made improvements to the way we work with shipping lines such as OOCL, Trans Asian Shipping Services, Nile Dutch Africa Line, COSCO, Maersk, Shipping Corporation of India (SCI), MSC, Hyundai, PIL, W.E.C. (West European Container) Lines.
We have added support for three more shipping lines:
● Qatar Navigation Lines (QNL)
● Meratus Line
● Indus Container Lines (IDCL)
We support a total of 82 shipping lines and 12 leasing companies. This is a great achievement because our platform is one of the few that can support so many shipping lines. Visit the updated list of shipping lines here.
We have increased the number of requests per second by 10 (you can currently make up to 400 requests in 20 seconds with one API key).
We have also increased the speed of the API key check for a faster response time (in some cases, it’s up to five times faster).
About SeaRates page
We have added a page with information about our brand.
“The SeaRates mission is to accelerate global trade in a way that all the cargo delivery processes will be automated and visible online, on any device, right from the booking stage to the final discharge.” Read more here.

We are working to provide you with alternative options to ship your cargo to the nearest ports on the closest available dates.
You will be able to search schedules based on the date or week of the year.
For example, if you are searching from Odessa to Shanghai, you can view the alternative routes:
Odessa to Ningbo

These options can help you decide on the right route for your shipment.
