As an NVOCC or Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier, you provide an important supply chain management service that keeps the global economy moving by managing or holding cargo containers for shippers.
But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing for NVOCCs in recent years. From getting space from carriers to port congestion, vessel delays, and labor shortages, there are plenty of challenges for NVOCCs big and small to navigate these days.
That’s where technology comes in.
Getting ocean freight from point of origin to destination efficiently, and organizing shipments for a company using another company’s carrier requires masterful orchestration. There’s no room for wasted time or errors. After all, your customers depend on you to provide high-value services despite the challenges at hand.

NVOCC Software That Puts You in the Captain’s Seat
Magaya’s NVOCC software features give you the power to streamline everyday tasks. You can easily and efficiently create quick FCL (full container load) and LCL (less than a full container load) bookings on ocean carriers, receive online booking requests, and more.
You can set up easy-to-understand air, ocean, and ground shipment consolidations, exchange shipping instructions (from freight to ocean to air and back), and quickly generate the Bill of Lading and other required documents.
Plus, built-in connections with customs agencies and thousands of agents make imports and exports so much more efficient than working in disparate systems or over fax or email.
Is your outdated NVOCC software costing you too much?
The costs of NVOCC software extend far beyond any license fees you might be paying. Direct costs like maintaining servers for on-premises software are only the tip of the iceberg, too.
The real cost of continuing to use outdated software to run your business goes much deeper: wasted time, losing customers to the competition, eroding profits… Failing to keep up with the demands of modern logistics can truly cost you your business.
From customs agencies to carriers, disparate data sources often require duplicate manual data entry that slows everything down and kills your productivity. What’s more, maintaining an obsolete or homegrown freight management system is a waste of precious resources that does nothing to advance your NVOCC business.
Modernize your business with the features you need to grow and achieve your goals. Magaya Supply Chain, the Magaya Digital Freight Portal, Magaya Rate Management, Magaya Customs Compliance, Magaya CRM, and the collection of Magaya extensions will give you everything you need to delight your customers and prepare for smooth sailings ahead.
