The Live Fr8 App was developed to create a platform for Cargo Suppliers (Freight) and Logistics Suppliers (Transporters) to engage with the intent of doing seemless business. It comprises a comprehensive system enabling the parties to load freight or find loads. The communication system of the App allows for loading of specified cargo in order to receive a quotation from transporters. The system is based on effective use, thus payment is only made by the transporter on a successful transaction agreement with the Cargo Supplier (Principal).
