This week Shipnext announced that it will enhance its service by connecting its shipping platform with the Mercurion trade security platform. As a result, Shipnext users can settle payments safely and securely using Mercurion’s digitalised escrow process. This digital process will considerably simplify settlement between parties transacting on Shipnext. By using the new option shippers, brokers and carriers will benefit from accurate, secure and fast settlement of fees, commissions and/or freight. It will reduce the administrative burden in respect of outstanding balances and unpaid invoices. In addition, the platform’s interface comprises a dashboard which allows all parties to monitor the status of any outstanding trade including a ‘track and trace’ of goods in transit.
‘The innovation of freight transactions has always been the main goal of Shipnext. Adding technology providers such as Mercurion is a logical step.’ (Alexander Varvarenko, CEO of Shipnext)
