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.

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.

Impressively well made, good ad. I wonder if getting this as an ad was retargeting as I had just become aware of Flexport a few days ago.

The idea is interresting. But at the end, is the goal reached? For instance I usually import my goods my Dhl Global Forwarding. Will your website wake things more easy for me? Or cheaper?
