Maersk’s youship.com breaking new ground in the shipping industry

By: | at 07:00 PM | Liner Shipping  

What if shipping were as easy as ordering a pizza online?

Youship.com is an alternative shipping service for small businesses, powered by Maersk Line. Maersk is breaking new ground in the industry, making container shipping just as easy as ordering airline tickets, books, car rentals or takeaway food online.

Youship.com is a 100% online shipping service that offers clear up-front all-in pricing information. The current rate is always available in real time on youship.com. This enables customers to make the best deal for themselves and their clients, whenever they have a need.

Early bookers get lower rates - it is first come, first served. When booking online, customers get instant booking confirmations, including a space guarantee - even when booking eight weeks in advance. Maersk’s policy is never to overbook; but if the unthinkable does happen and a customer is “rolled,” they provide a full refund, along with free space on the next vessel.

On youship.com, users simply place an order and pay online. They can then print out their receipt - or ‘E/Doc’. It is easy and free to register. Right now Maersk is offering all customers a $100 sign-up discount on their first shipment.

Currently youship.com serves customers in a number of trade lanes from the ports of Hong Kong, Rotterdam, and Antwerp to destinations in Netherlands, United Kingdom, Morocco, Turkey, China, Japan, and Australia.
