Input prospective pro forma sale information

Review questionnaire - Pro Forma detail options

HCB schedules a one-on-one with the Pro Forma User to go over the questionnaire and discuss shipping / documentation needed for the proposed shipment

Based on Pro Forma information input and Live Meeting questionnaire discussion, HCB then evaluates which cost components are eligible for Shipment Postings that Service Providers can bid upon

Service Providers bid on Quote Requests.  See posting example and watch demo of how a service provider makes a bid on the HCB Cloud
Registration of service providers (truckers, ocean carriers, NVOCCs, air consolidators, warehousemen, draymen, consular services, banks, marine insurers, destination agents, shipper associations) is FREE to qualified companies.

All replies are retained in the event a back-up vendor may be required, or the service / pricing of the recommendation is requested to be changed by the seller.
