GO to support the NTP’s national effort by November 2018 through NTP-compatible digital trade documentation to speed up cross-border freight forwarding for Singaporean companies
Singapore, 27 September 2018 – Get GO Global (GO), a leading digital lead logistics provider in Asia, announced that GO is coming on board the Singapore NTP, the national trade information management platform, to offer its GO FREIGHT on-demand freight forwarding services to Singaporean companies engaged in the B2B import or export of goods.
“We are excited to join the NTP, which is a major national effort to increase digitalisation in trade conducted by Singapore-based companies. We have built our first platform, GO DC, into one of the largest warehouse listing sites in Asia. We are equally committed to make GO FREIGHT on the NTP accessible, relevant and cost-effective to as many companies as possible.” said Mr. Au Kah Soon, CEO of GO.
The GO FREIGHT platform offers instant freight forwarding quotations, bookings, payments and tracking of B2B shipments. Available and accessible on any device, the GO FREIGHT platform cuts down historically slow and manual search, quote and booking processes that take days or weeks. GO FREIGHT will be available on GO’s website and is expected to be also available on the NTP at or around November 2018.
