Parnity’s Subscription Plans
When we first launched Parnity the platform was entirely for free and it was a great fit for the forwarder industry to try a new platform without any obstacles. But at some point, we would have to start charging for it, and deciding how to do it was a big challenge.
At first, we thought of launching some paid features, but in the end, we decided to create Subscription Plans that give our users the power to choose the experience they want to have in Parnity.
Thais Faria, our Head of Product spoke more about our experience in this article, check it out!
Now, Parnity has 3 different Subscription Plans:
- Basic: This plan is focused on small teams that do not have a big amount of quotations per month.
- Standard: This plan is for larger teams that need to make a bigger amount of quotations and improve their business by organizing the list of partners
- Premium: This plan is for bigger teams that wants to improve their partner’s business generation by finding, managing, and analyzing their forwarder partnerships.

What is the difference between a Logistics Network and Parnity?
A logistics network works like an exclusive group that a freight forwarder company pays to have access to a few partners in certain regions across the globe. The costs to enter a network are usually $1500 and $4500 per year.
Before a forwarder company joins a network they analyze the forwarder to ensure that this forwarder is trustworthy. After your freight forwarder is approved to the network your company’s information is shared with the other forwarders in the network database.
Parnity has a concept totally different from a network, we are a collaborative platform for freight forwarders worldwide, there are no restrictions on how many countries can enter Parnity, so you will be able to find a bigger number of contacts to quote, when needed. You will also be able to analyze each company’s background through logistics certifiers such as IATA, DUNS number, FDRS and AEO – this way we bring the power of analyzing the quality of your partner, to your own freight forwarder.
In our platform, you will also be able to manage your current partners (Like a CRM for partners, so we call it a partnership relationship manager – PRM) and analyze your partnership’s quality – which is key when building better partnerships.
Parnity is always bringing the power of choosing, managing, and analyzing the forwarder partners to YOUR freight forwarder. We do not believe you should use a third-party when choosing the freight forwarder your company will trust the client’s cargo with, right?
