Freight shipping platform launched

A new online platform for metal recyclers to access shipping rates and book freight shipments online has been launched in a partnership between Sealink International and Davis Index.

Low rate, shipping cost transparency and quick bookings of container shipments are seen as a long-standing challenge for recyclers already facing difficult market conditions. The Sealink-Davis Index enables companies to make better strategic business decisions and data-driven choices.

Traders are able to:

  • research shipping rates
  • book ocean, air, truck and parcel shipments
  • track delivery locations in real time
  • manage and pay invoices
  • access detailed reporting and data analytics

Texas-based Sealink International is a freight forwarder for the metals recycling industry while Davis Index, headquartered in Singapore, is a global commodity price reporting agency which also supplies ferrous data to Recycling International. The new platform offers real-time access to shipping rates and the ability to book freight shipments online to members of Davis Index.

‘As the market leader in providing freight and shipping solutions to metal recyclers, Sealink is excited to be integrated with the world’s best data intelligence platform built only for the recycling industry,’ says Sealink ceo Shaizad Shroff. ‘Metal recyclers shipping to, or from, anywhere can now research competitive container rates and book their shipments instantly online.’

Sean Davidson, ceo of Davis Index, says its members can access real-time container freight rates and book their containers from within our platform. ‘It reduces resource costs for companies and gives market participants the information they need, when they need it. Both companies are technology-led which allows us to deliver solutions like these to make the everyday roles at companies more seamless and effortless.’
