Hapag-Lloyd launches online quotes tool
(Aug, 2018) Hapag Lloyd has launched its online digital quotation tool called Quick Quotes to the public, hoping to allow exporters and freight forwarders to simplify and accelerate their quotation process for container transport.
The tool aims to generate online quotations for the transport of containers in seconds and provide customers transparency on the detailed freights. This aims to allow a process of quotation faster, easier and more convenient for shipping throughout the world and throughout the day.
The process for obtaining an online transport container quote involves logging into the company’s website, choosing a start and end location, and a type of item and container. Customers must receive a binding offer in a matter of seconds, and can then make their reservations immediately through the Hapag-Lloyd online business platform.

Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd, said:
“Making it easier for us to do business and digitize our services is very important for us.”
He also added that:
“Quick Quotes allows our customers around the world to obtain a quote or quotation for the transport of containers in a faster and at any time, which will contribute to a better and more efficient customer experience.”
The quotation tool is the integration into the operator’s online business platform so that customers can quickly complete large parts of the document processes of container transport by themselves.
In addition to obtaining a quote and making an immediate reservation for the transport of a container, there are additional services available, such as itinerary verification, document management or tracking or tracking of shipments.
Starting in September, the tool will also be available through the application of the shipping line for iOS and Android.
