Price to use our Shipping Model
How do I get prices?
Traditionally, transport companies need to understand your freight profile and footprint. They sit down and analyse your data, design a solution that suits your needs and then go to market anonymously and utilise their buying power to present to you a better than market rate, or at lease your hope so!
HorecaFusion Shipping is different, we aggregate the entire wholesale market and present this to the Transport companies in order that you as a Wholesaler are participating in the best Buying Group possible when it comes to freight. You in turn can pass on these savings to your Customers, removing one more point of friction in your sales process.
