Newcastle, UK, July 10, 2019 - Kontainers, the industry-leading E-Commerce software provider for global freight brands, today announces Kontainers Essential to democratize every single freight forwarder on the planet with their own-branded, customer-facing SaaS (Software as a Service) E-Commerce solution.

Even the smallest freight and logistics brands can now serve their clients via a cutting-edge, own-branded E-Commerce solution and maximise the once in a generation move online that the industry is undergoing. Essential also provides the opportunity to open up new revenue streams and acquire and retain clients at a cost never seen before. The first of the Essential Alpha cohort will be on-boarded on the 30th September 2019.

Essential own-branded solutions are free to go live and have one all-inclusive and transparent transaction charge starting at $10 per FCL and sliding (LCL will be even less). Like all Kontainers customers, Essential clients will receive all upgrades free of charge (including for example, Air). As a modern, enterprise-grade solution there is no down time for upgrades or maintenance and hosting and unlimited users are included in the flat transaction based fee.

“We are thrilled to make this significant addition to our suite of software products to serve every size of freight brand from global to 2 person operations. Our mission has always been to empower every logistics provider on the planet and to help future proof their business to enable them to win in the next decade. Kontainers offers solutions that have no barrier to entry for the almost one million freight and logistics brands globally. Our products are already tried and tested by the largest brands in freight and next year we already have more than one million bookings contracted to be ‘Powered by Kontainers’ solutions. We believe this product will move the needle further in freight technology and freight brands will quickly use their new API driven solutions to plug-in brand-new revenue streams that were never before possible,” said Kontainers CEO Graham Parker.
