Welcome to NavLab

Eliminate the complexity in your forwarding operation.
Pack a container, deliver it to the port, load it on a ship, unload at the other end and deliver to a warehouse – simple right.
In reality, freight forwarding is a complex process.
Take a typical job – China to Australia. The multiple shipping lines, port pairs, container types, INCOTERMS and customs charges are just the beginning. Add in local delivery charges, frequently updating rates as well as surcharges and negotiated discounts and the potential pricing options multiplies by a few more 1000.
This means there are quite literally millions of possible rates for a single freight quote. Essential, but near impossible to keep track of – especially if like most you’re trying to do it in Excel.
Producing quotes with this level of complexity is time-consuming, often manual and error-prone taking up huge amounts of time that could be better spent on growth and client retention activities. It frustrates sales teams and clients who feel like quoting takes ages and eats into profits through lost hours, lost margin, lost jobs and even lost clients.
