The history of Okargo
OKARGO was created in an increasingly complex market climate for sea freight.
Indeed, since globalisation, the growing number of price schedules from shipping companies and the diversity of formats in which these are sent has not simplified the task of comparing forwarders’ offers.
That is why, in April 2013, the OKARGO team, working around Julien CHAPUS, the company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, aimed to develop a tool that would facilitate the management of the freight rates of freight forwarders.
Barely a year later, this goal was achieved and in April 2014, Okargo served its first customers in France. After two years spent perfecting its service in the country, Okargo turned its sights further afield and was adapted in four other languages in order serve several European countries.
Constantly growing, today, Okargo simplifies the daily work of more than 30 sea freight agencies in 5 countries: France, Germany, Spain, Netherlands and Belgium.
