The Live Fr8 App was developed to create a platform for Cargo Suppliers (Freight) and Logistics Suppliers (Transporters) to engage with the intent of doing seemless business. It comprises a comprehensive system enabling the parties to load freight or find loads. The communication system of the App allows for loading of specified cargo in order to receive a quotation from transporters. The system is based on effective use, thus payment is only made by the transporter on a successful transaction agreement with the Cargo Supplier (Principal).

Cargo Supplier App

Candidates will learn to operate and teach Cargo Suppliers the system, and to operate it effectively from any smart device.

Logistics Supplier App

Candidates will learn to operate and teach the operation of the app to Transporters.

  • Learn to expose cargo to transporters for free.

  • Learn to find more cargo loads to transport from any geographic location.

  • Step-by-step tutorials on how to efficiently use the Application as either a Cargo Supplier (any individual or company with loads to transport) or Transporter (any individual or company with a vehicle ranging from motorcycles to flatbed trucks).

  • Introduction to Cloud technology.

  • Advantages of Cloud technology - 80 000 transactions per second with unmatched security.
