Evergreen agrees online sea freight integration with Alibaba

Evergreen Line has teamed up with China-based online marketplace Alibaba.com to provide the site’s members with the option of booking sea freight services online with their purchases, offering guaranteed space and prices.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Evergreen Logistics Corporation has also been appointed as a designated provider of logistics services for Alibaba.com members opting for the sea freight package.

The move is a reaction to the increasing number of small, fragmented orders from global buyers being driven by the growth of e-Commerce worldwide, Evergreen says, and will provide accessible logistics services to smaller volume shippers.

Online buyers will be able to search for freight rates and reserve cargo space on the Alibaba.com platform directly. Once a booking is confirmed, the selected price is also locked-in regardless of how the market price changes, guaranteeing the shipping space and price.

Further services from Evergreen Logistics, such as trucking arrangements, customs clearance or documentation requirements, can also be arranged alongside the online booking.

At this initial stage of its partnership with Alibaba.com, Evergreen Line says it will be offering the booking facility on routes from China's main ports to Israel and the South American region, before looking at potential expansion in the future.{/mprestriction}
