Mizzen Launches Live Container Pricing

Mizzenit.com, a global marketplace for freight forwarders to book containerised spot market space, has launched live pricing includes instant rates from some of the largest global shipping lines, which represent more than 25 percent of total global container shipping capacity. Mizzenit.com will now provide instant spot rates for over 15,300 port pairs (import, export and cross trade).

This new feature complements the company's existing rate request and booking service which already includes around 55 percent of global container shipping capacity including lines such as Maersk, MSC, CMA CGM, Hapag Lloyd, Hamburg Sud, APL, ANL and OOCL.

A key success factor for these new “rate platforms,” identified by SeaIntel, is about working with shipping lines and helping them change business process to work in a digital environment. This has been an important philosophy of Mizzen.
