This in­dus­try has been tra­di­tion­ally lack­ing tech­nol­ogy pen­e­tra­tion lead­ing to a high de­gree of in­ef­fi­cien­cies

Kindly high­light the prob­lems faced by the ship­ping in­dus­try?

While to­day a ship­per can track a small par­cel end-to-end, there is still no vis­i­bil­ity of a ship­ping con­tainer moved across the world. This in­dus­try has been tra­di­tion­ally lack­ing tech­nol­ogy pen­e­tra­tion lead­ing to a high de­gree of in­ef­fi­cien­cies. Ship­pers are lack­ing a uni­fied plat­form for mak­ing mul­ti­modal book­ing of ship­ping con­tain­ers across road, rail and ocean. Due to com­plex­ity of the en­tire process of ex­port­ing con­tain­ers, In­dian man­u­fac­tures tend to avoid ex­port­ing them­selves and in­stead ap­proach larger mer­chant ex­porters.

How can Camel­port be a game-changer?

We let em­pan­eled sup­pli­ers and ship­pers to ex­change quotes, con­tainer vis­i­bil­ity, com­mu­ni­cate and file doc­u­ments through one easy to use plat­form along with a ro­bust ship­ment plan­ning tool. At Camel­port, we have spent time to de­velop a prod­uct that is easy to use and re­ally im­pacts how ex­porters move their con­tain­ers.

Can you enu­mer­ate on the prod­ucts.

Here­with are the prod­ucts that en­com­passes our USP.

ON BOARD­ING

Camel­port pro­vides an easy in­ter­face for self on board­ing. Con­tracts are sent elec­tron­i­cally and e-sign func­tion­al­ity is avail­able for swift pro­cess­ing of these doc­u­ments. We have fur­ther de­vel­oped an app as well.

PLAN­NING

Camel­port pro­vides a ro­bust ship­ment plan­ning tool which pro­vides op­tions from var­i­ous ports along with ves­sel de­tails.

RFQ & BOOK­ING

Once the ex­porter has planned the ship­ment, he can sub­mit it for RFQ’s. Mul­ti­ple sup­pli­ers can quote for var­i­ous legs of the ship­ment for ex­porter to choose from. Quote man­age­ment func­tion­al­ity is in­built along with ex­change rate man­age­ment. The plat­form truly en­ables ex­porters to make the cor­rect de­ci­sion w.r.t. to the sup­pli­ers.

SHIP­MENT EX­E­CU­TION

The plat­form au­to­mat­i­cally cre­ates a ship­ment task list for stake­hold­ers to per­form along with time­lines. The task list is dy­nam­i­cally gen­er­ated on the ba­sis of tran­sit­ing ports and coun­tries. The ex­porter can also track the ship­ment live seam­lessly across land and ocean.

PAY­MENT AND BILLING

Pay­ment can be made us­ing bank trans­fers to vir­tual ac­counts mapped to their ac­counts with Camel­port. This means that all pay­ments re­flect im­me­di­ately to their ac­counts without having the need to man­u­ally map the re­ceipt.

COM­MU­NI­CA­TION

Cur­rents modes of com­mu­ni­ca­tion in­clude emails, SMS, What­sApp busi­ness, twit­ter mes­sen­ger, in app no­ti­fi­ca­tions and browser push no­ti­fi­ca­tions.
