Ryan Petersen, founder of Flexport, believes that nothing helps people improve their lives more than the ability to trade with one another. And, yet, even in the era of free trade, international shipping for businesses is still way too cumbersome. If Flexport succeeds, the chair you’re sitting on, the phone you’re holding, and the clothes you’re wearing will all cost less.

What Irks me, is that you DON'T seem to be promoting OUT bound freight. Containers are piled up like mountains in LA & Oakland. Clintons fault. WTO MFN. A mess.

I have no doubt that you're trying to do a great thing but it's not you that's going to f*** it up it's the corporations that are going back look more profit yaaaaaay which will then go to things like stock BuyBacks and to their CEOs to buy things they most definitely don't need while the poor f****** starve No don't none of y'all right-wing Republican motherfukers come at me I'll beat the f*** out of you I've been itching for a fight for a long goddamn time to you leave me alone and I will beat your face in sounds like a fair deal to me

I tell my children that human hands made and transported and provide the products we purchase. They laughed and scoffed, then they get jobs, move tons of bags of sand at home depot and touching each item at the Wal-Mart checker job, then they say, "You are right, mom."

As someone who works in freight forwarding, this seems a little too idealistic...

Sounds like another middle man = FLEXPORT trying to make money off of you me all of us. What this actually does and it doesn't tell you is that they dont control the price per containers its the ports that control all shipping container price.These guys will have a very small percentage of containers ship to the U.S. just so they can say they do ship to the U.S. but the rest will ship to neighbouring countrie ports like Mexico and Canada to bring cost down and hundreds of thousand American people lose their jobs. Its happening now. And at the end the middle man like FLEXPORT becames another multi billion dollar company controlling how much you will pay and they will charge you for shipping.

The way i see it is: there is always room for error, why? Even if it is automatized, the software is only as good as the person doing the data entry. Is this company large enough to use their own vessels to move their own containers? No. Do they have their own otr system running at smaller markets and areas? Do they run their private cfs's? Well, if they don't, the freight is still going to exchange hands several times. What about breakbul freight, what about oog or ow or dry bulk or ro-ro freight? Do they have a "solution" for that too? Wonder if they even are a nvocc.

Yeah, that thing! Etc. etc. etc. He wasn't specific at all. I believe the main jist of it is an app they've developed and over see transactions between shipping companies to link up on a worldwide scale and kind of allow them to have accounts where each shipment has a GPS tracker in the app, and with each company using the app, they contact each other virtually anytime through that account of the shipment on the app.

i hope these guys succeed in their vision but interontinental movement of goods depends on the trade policies of their respective government and everything bogs down at border custom which i believe is the actual problem and is solved by custom broker and not freight brokers.its not a rocket science to ship goods.

I've used FlexPort for over a year and have been very happy with the pricing until recently. I was advised by my friends that there are much cheaper options. And indeed, after doing my research I found a freight forwarder that would move my 40 ft container to the west coast for $1000 less. I also requested an additional quote to the east coast just to see if it would be the same. And in that case, as well, the new forwarder's quote was $850 cheaper than that of Flexport's. That's a lot of money if you move products frequently, which I do. Unless FlexPort offers better quotes, I don't think I'll work with them again. On top of it, Flexport's local partners in China charged my Chinese suppliers exorbitant FOB fees. Four different factories complained about the same issue and they told me they wouldn't work with FlexPort unless they offer lower FOB fees. FlexPort refused to change anything. Another reason for me to move on and stick with the cheaper option. As my friend said, FlexPort is a big company and we are just small fish for them. But for small forwarders, we are big fish and they are willing to go above and beyond to keep our business and keep us happy with the prices.

+hemanth kumar hey man, it depends where you are, i will suggest a smaller to medium size forwarder, go on line and pick 2 or 3 and request an all inclusive door to door if you want your freight delivered to your door or dock, depending on the type of move, fcl or lcl. Do it dap if you have a customs broker or ddp if you dont have one. You see the difference.
