Help center & FAQs
Do I have to pay any registration or subscription fees to use Spotos?
Unlike other freight forwarding platforms, Spotos is a subscription-free platform, so there are no recurring or registration charges. Placing freight orders through Spotos is free; shippers are charged and our success fee is applied only after the freight has been confirmed by the carrier.
How does the auction-based Smart freight pricing work?
Our smart freight pricing uses a reverse-auction-based algorithm. The algorithm leverages real-time market data to set the lowest available price for the shippers. Here’s how it works:
Based on their freight details, shippers get real-time data-based price benchmarks;
They can then use these benchmarks to set a preferred shipping price range for their freight order;
The freight order appears on the carriers’ marketplace at the lowest selected rate;
The freight auction rate increases within the set budget limits until a carrier accepts it.
There are no carrier bidding or third-party fees through Spotos, which makes our freight rates up to 30% lower and fully transparent.
What are the automated charges for freight cancellations?
Automated charges can be assigned if the carrier or the shipper has canceled a freight that has already been accepted. The charged amount will depend on how late the freight was cancelled. To find out more about the cancellation charges and their sizes, read here.
What payment methods do you accept?
Shipping services can be paid for via online banking, bank transfer, or cards. All invoices and payments are processed through our platform, which makes it easier to get an overview of all historic freight payments.
How do carriers get paid?
Spotos offers carriers a 100% payment guarantee. As soon as the proof-of-delivery documents are uploaded and confirmed, we issue an invoice to the shipper. There is no need for carriers to issue invoices separately. The money is transferred to the carrier’s bank account within 30 days after POD documents confirmation.
How do you validate your carrier network?
Every Spotos carrier goes through our verification process, which includes uploading the necessary documentation (carrier license, liability insurance, proof of payment for liability insurance and certificate of entry in the business register). Carrier company details are then checked and verified by our internal teams to ensure they comply with our terms and can act as trusted partners in our marketplace.
Spotos client reviews
Learn about our client experiences using Spotos
Great platform to find transports for our cargo load; we are finding cheaper transports, and it’s also really helpful to check the route average market value. Includes invoices online, and the best part is that it is always the platform that invoices you. NOT required to engage in negotiations for payment methods with each transport company that books.
Everything was perfect and transparent. I could share all the information on every step with my colleagues. Everything was on time. Platform is very easy to use. Congrats on your platform!
Your system is great, it’s good to have such an opportunity and innovative solutions. I’m always team innovation!
I have to personally tell you that we are currently working with many transports company but I´m in love of Spotos already. The way you organized your system, we can find all the information on the link, confirming the unloading without mailing and automatically having the invoice. I just like it a lot and wanted you to know. I hope we can load many trucks from now on.
