DOES GLOMAP HANDLE ALSO INTERMODEL FREIGHT ( WHEN A CARRIER WILL QUOTE FOR THROUGH RATE?)
YES, all shipments have in common that there is ocean transport but a lot of the inquiries have
pre-carriage for the container with truck to a sea harbour. The shippers must state this request
and the FF or Carriers must – if requested by shippers – must bid for the entire transport.
