FREIGHT RATE COMPARISON CELEBRATES FIRST YEAR SUCCESS - 01/03/2011, the freight rate comparison site that launched in November 2009 is celebrating, having already beaten its first year target. It now has 200 service providers registered and has attracted 3,000 users.


Enquiries for freight services also continue to grow at an impressive rate throughout the year with more than 1000 requests for quotes being received in September.


The information on is also becoming more comprehensive as it now boasts approximately 5000 live services and covers imports and exports on air, road and sea services as well as UK domestic haulage and parcels. It will also shortly be launching a unique service enabling users to measure the CO2 impact of services and monitor the ‘eco friendliness’ of individual carriers. 


Commenting on the first year success director of, Howard Mould said,


“ My fellow director Paul Wilson has been a long-term user of freight services, while I have been involved with the providers of such services for almost 25 years, so before we created we knew the frustrations encountered by both parties when requesting and supplying quotes.


“We therefore identified a great opportunity to emulate consumer price comparison sites by using a similar model for business-to-business use.


“We were surprised how quickly it was adopted by both parties and the data being provided by is improving daily as more service providers become aware of the site and use the facilities we offer.”


Almost twelve months on, the site is proving a big hit with both service providers and users.

Mark Richardson, business development manager, Dalpa International Ltd, is particularly impressed with

“When we were first approached by Howard and Paul, we thought the concept was a great idea and long overdue.


“Mind you concepts can often be some distance from reality but in this case they delivered what they promised.  Registration is easy and it has saved us a great deal of time by not having to quote in the traditional method on individual jobs. Naturally we are also delighted that jobs not relevant to us are filtered out and only genuine orders are being generated.”


Marc McCallum, managing director of Worldmail Ltd, is equally enthusiastic,


“Cargo has developed a website that is a godsend for freight buyers and sellers alike.


“I'm delighted with the number of solid enquiries I've received and the subsequent sales I've concluded since the launch of the site. And, as a buyer, I no longer have to wait the best part of two days for all the quotes to come in.”


Director of Elite Group, Stewart Firth, added,


“ is an excellent way for exporters/importers to access rates from a multiple range of service providers without being bombarded with all the sales jargon that can accompany rate requests.


“Elite Group Logistics is excited by the opportunity of being able to introduce clients to our services through the strategic use of a specialist price comparison site. What pleases me most about’s approach is that it is vetting who can and cannot be listed as a service provider thereby ensuring only bone fide companies are included.”
