Cargoson is not a new carrier or a freight market platform, but an online platform that makes it easy to manage shipments and maintains all existing cooperation agreements with different carriers.
How is this possible?
In case the form of cooperation with transport partners is a fixed price list
Different price lists can be compared and customer sees the price instantly after entering the shipment information. As a result, the customer is aware of the exact cost of shipping before placing the order. Cargoson does not break the customer-carrier relationship or come between them, instead, it assists parties to technically implement the existing agreement in a cost-optimal and convenient way.

Technical solution behind Cargoson
Cargoson's keyword is EDI connection. In the world of logistics, electronic data communication between the customer and the carrier is on the agenda. Classically, this is done by configuring the customer's business software so that after creating each sales order or purchase order, the user can directly generate a shipment order from the carrier to their carrier. The system creates an EDI-supported file in a predetermined format and sends it to the carrier via EDI. In the carrier system, a transport request is generated. Figuratively speaking, it does the same thing as a user creating a sales order in their business software and then logging into an e-ordering environment and manually completing a shipment order. An EDI connection allows you to skip this additional step. This is often the most convenient solution, but it is very carrier-based - each carrier has its own rules for EDI connections, and it is expensive to establish and maintain EDI connections with all of the carriers.
Cargoson has a solution here. Cargoson already has EDI connections with all carriers. The customer does not have to do anything but one EDI connection to Cargoson and from there, the information is transferred to any carrier of the customer’s choice. In this way, the customer is not locked to only one carrier but can choose or change carriers as desired. In other words, one EDI connection to Cargoson will suffice. There is no need to make separate connections to all carrier systems of interest.
