If you are a freight forwarder interested in investing in a logistics network to expand your business and meet other forwarders who are looking for a new freight forwarder partner to share business with, keep reading because I’m going to explain to you how to get more inquiries with Parnity.
Parnity is a digital logistics network that was developed to facilitate and improve the connection between forwarders worldwide. We use technology, a transparent validation process, and a real-time chat to help our members make new partnerships and increase their business generation.
How can Parnity help me get more inquiries?
It is completely understandable that when wondering how to acquire more forwarder partners, you consider joining a logistics network to have easier access to other forwarders. Indeed, being a member of a logistics network can provide many advantages, that’s why I’d like to tell you how to get more inquiries with Parnity.
By becoming a Premium member of Parnity’s network, you will have access to a technological freight forwarder system that will allow you to receive quotations from over 4,000 forwarders from more than 154 countries. Besides that, more than 100 new forwarders sign up in Parnity every month, which means that more and more business opportunities for making new partnerships can come your way.
Along with that, inside Parnity you can find forwarders online in real-time ready to exchange quotations and build new partnerships.
Not to mention that, unlike traditional logistics/freight forwarding networks, on Parnity the forwarders are listed by a search algorithm that organizes the results by the probability of being a qualified agent, not by alphabetical order.
This is important not only so that you can find the best possible partner, but also to let others know that YOU ARE the best option in your country, city, or region.
What can I do to increase my chances of getting inquiries at Parnity?
As mentioned previously, Parnity uses Artificial Intelligence to organize the search results for forwarders made within the platform more fairly, based on relevant criteria.
Therefore, since the results are not sorted in alphabetical order, your forwarding company can be at the top of the searches for forwarders in your country, city, or region. This makes you much more likely to be contacted by other freight forwarders who can offer you business opportunities!
However, even though a Premium member is already listed in the search results, there are some things that can be done to get the best possible position and thus increase your chances of getting inquiries:
- Make your company profile as complete as possible: Your company profile is how you can be found by other agents who are looking for a new freight forwarder partner. The more complete your profile, the better your chances are of being found by other companies. So fill out the “About us” of your company, services you provide (to be more easily found when filtered), presentations, photos, videos, etc.
Remember: The most complete profiles are more relevant to our Search Algorithm.
BONUS TIP – Add “Quotation Contacts” to your profile: who is the main person responsible for answering inquiries from other agents in your company? You should add this person as the “quotation contact”, this way you ensure that inquiries are being sent to the right person and you won’t miss a business opportunity!
- Validate your company profile: All companies listed on Parnity – Premium members – have gone through a validation process. During this step, you will be asked to provide a little more information about your company, along with some supporting documents and other requirements. Being approved in the process adds a validated badge to your company’s profile and therefore gives it more credibility.
*All that is required in this process is included in the screenshot below so that you can gather them all together to submit your validation.
- Work on your Trust Scan: the Trust Scan is the space on your public profile where you can check important information about companies so that you can evaluate them further, to help you make a decision based on verified criteria. It is the perfect moment for you to show other freight forwarders that you are a qualified partner.
In Trust Scan, you can add the logistics certifications your forwarder has. It is also where the documents you have submitted during the validation process, your last access to Parnity, and financial records (whether or not the forwarder is listed in FDRS) are displayed.
- Be active on Parnity: Since other members can see the last time you were active on Parnity, if you are logged in regularly, our Search Algorithm will rank you higher than a forwarder who is inactive on the platform. This is because it will recognize that your company is still operating and you are online to receive and respond to quotes from agents who contact you.
Not to mention our real-time chat, the most important reason to keep active and online on Parnity every day. All forwarders online inside Parnity show up on the search results, this means that you can be contacted by any forwarder on our system ready to quote and build a new partnership. So keep online to receive inquiries on a daily basis.
FAQ – Why being a Premium member is the best chance to receive inquiries?
Even though our basic plan allows you to use the platform for FREE and also has several benefits such as: finding the best forwarders to handle your shipments, choosing with more confidence by viewing each company’s validation criteria, and sending unlimited messages (following anti-spam guidelines) to all the companies you wish to receive quotes from or develop a new strategic partnership with. When compared to the Premium plan, it still offers certain limitations.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the Premium plan offers a complete platform experience. Only Premium members are listed in Parnity’s search results, thus they also have access to information about which other forwarders have viewed their company profile. Premium members can be contacted in our real-time chat from all forwarders inside the network and receive real-time quotations. Along with that, they have access to close human support and guided onboarding to learn how to get the most out of Parnity.
So if your goal is to receive inquiries from other members who are looking for a new partner to share business with, the Premium plan better fits what you’re looking for.
