Why Envia works
To understand how Envia works you need to understand how a freight forwarder generates revenue. A freight forwarder must rely on a group of clients with a proven track record of consistent importing or exporting. This volume over time allows a forwarder to generate revenue by applying different rates to many shipments, this volume also allow for a competitive costing scenario.
However if you have just a one off import or export or you are a very small volume importer or exporter say just a few shipments per year a freight forwarder will see this as a single opportunity to make as much revenue as they can knowing they will never see you again. Also unless you can convince a freight forwarder your shipment is very close to moving his time towards your project will be very limited because their time towards a shipment not moving is for them a waste of time.
