Sealink International, a leading tech-enabled freight forwarder in the metals recycling industry, and Davis Index, an innovative global commodity price reporting agency, have collaborated on a new integrated platform that 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,” said Shaizad Shroff, CEO of Sealink International. “Metal recyclers shipping to, or from, anywhere can now research competitive container rates and book their shipments instantly online.”
Low rate, shipping cost transparency, and the slow process of booking container shipments is a long-standing challenge for metal recyclers who will continue to face difficult market conditions heading into 2021. The Sealink-Davis Index integration enables companies to make better strategic business decisions and data-driven choices.
Metal recyclers can now access the following shipping technology functions online:
- * Research shipping rates
- * Book shipments across all modes: ocean, air, truck, and parcel
- * Track delivery locations in real-time
- * Manage and pay invoices
- * Access detailed reporting and data analytics
“Our integration with Sealink allows our members to access real-time container freight rates and book their containers from within our platform,” said Sean Davidson, CEO of Davis Index. “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.”
