Upon expiration of your spot rates, eShipAsia can support you to automatically get a new quotation so you don’t have to worry about having suitable spot rates for your recurring export shipments while you completely eliminate your time spent on obtaining spot rates.

Depending on your preferences, the platform will either quote freight rates based on the lowest freight rates, fastest available transit time or best value.
