Telling us about what makes Vamaship different, Bhavik, said:
“Globally, the shipping and freight industry has presented freight forwarders and shippers with a broken and expensive experience, owing to its unorganized and unintegrated processes. With Vamaship’s integrated logistics platform, we aim to change logistics forever by implementing tech-driven solutions to automate and facilitate shipping. This will ensure a cost-effective and seamless shipping experience for all stakeholders.”
Vamaship helps shippers minimise costs through passing on bulk shipping rates and through automation of shipping processes. It gives users deep analytics to improve shipping optimisation.
