Who we are…
We believe software should be useful, simple, and fast – so you can work better, get more accomplished, and make smarter decisions for your business.
Cargoguide was founded by Jorre and Iwert Cobelens in 2003, at a small home office in the Netherlands. During the years leading up to launching Cargo Office, Jorre worked for an international forwarder.
As he became more familiar with the business, he looked for tools to help search for airfreight rate prices. Together they wanted to find a way to easily search for rates and compare them for his clients. They wanted a service that innovated with technology and was beautifully designed. They couldn’t find one…
So they decided to invest their own time, energy and money into creating a better way to run the forwarding business – and Cargo Office Air was born. Cargo Office was introduced as the first independently managed solution with a pre-filled rate database for air freight.
Cargo Office Air was immediately embraced by other forwarders looking for a simpler and better way to work. Today, Cargoguide publishes air and ocean freight rates for thousands of customers around the world, from small businesses, middle size international companies to departments within Fortune 500 companies. Nowadays it has become the industry’s standard for efficient air freight management.
