Sea freight is the most efficient way to ship your goods if you ship high volumes and want to save on transportation cost. We globally handle more than 40+ trade lanes.
Airfreight is the quickest way to get your goods shipped. We cooperate directly with airlines worldwide, thanks to our IATA license.
Rail freight is the ideal compromise between sea and air freight in terms of prices and transit times and offers you environmentally friendly transports between Europe and Asia.
With multimodal transport, you can combine the advantages of different forms of transport, compare and book different offers creating a transport solution that best fits your needs.
FortoX, our latest product, is purpose-built to help you manage your own supply chain from order to goods receipt so you can make better business decisions.
No more out-of-stock messages. FortoX allows you to monitor your inventory at order and/or product level and can be customized to your individual business needs.
