Belmin Valk
E-commerce entrepreneur

The main reason why I use Boloo Forwarding is because it ensures that I'm paying the lowest possible rate for the most efficient shipment and service. When I was still arranging my transport through my suppliers, I was always worried about paying too much or paying extra costs afterwards.

Jelle Boeije
Co-owner

So far, a great collaboration with Cargomate. I've only been using it recently, but I find the interface super chill and making a booking is also easy. In addition, they offer a nice service via chat, because they provide answers fairly quickly and provide clear answers.

Sander Risseeuw
Owner

Boloo Forwarding is highly recommended to use. It's easy to use and if you do have a question, you'll get it answered in the chat. They also offer storage and the prices are good!

Jesse Botter
Owner

Compared to the speed and prices of suppliers in China, this is so much cheaper and faster. Air freight and sea freight are both ideally arranged. A large part is being taken care of.

Carel van den Boogaart
Owner

Absolutely top company. We let all our transports go from Boloo Forwarding, which runs smoothly and affordably. The support is unparalleled. No question or problem is too much for her. They help quickly and personally. Nothing but praise! We hope to work with them for years to come!

Wael de Drooge

Since working with Cargomate, I have a familiar feeling. It is a great pleasure to work with a forwarder who is Dutch. As a result, communication is easy and smooth. Finally, I would like to say that the prices have always been very reasonable!

Laura Oorschot
E-commerce entrepreneur

Before I had Cargomate, I used a Chinese forwarder via Alibaba. When this went completely wrong, wrong products, late delivery times and no one to blame, I immediately switched to Boloo Forwarding. And what a world of difference that was!

Jelmer Boele
E-commerce entrepreneur

Super company! Use Cargomate often, they have their own calculator to calculate costs, I haven't seen this with any other forwarder, usually always a lot of hassle asking prices, now it's a matter of entering weight, dimensions and number of boxes and hoppa you've got the price. Great!

Esat Tutus
E-commerce entrepreneur

Cargomate always provides you with the cheapest rates. Because I work with Cargomate, shipments are really easy. The only thing I can say is that you have the opportunity to work with Cargomate: Do it fast!

Leon Korpel
E-commerce entrepreneur

I've been shipping products before Boloo came up with Forwarding. From experience, I can tell you that it has never been easier than with Cargomate. The rates are also cheaper than via the manufacturer or another forwarder because of bundling multiple shipments from other entrepreneurs, win together!

Contact us
Where can I calculate prices?

You can calculate prices on our calculator page. For China, we have instant prices for LCL and FCL shipments. For other countries, we work on a quotation basis.

How long does it take for my shipment to arrive?

With our weekly consolidations, it takes 6-7 weeks for your shipment to be delivered from our warehouse in China to your requested delivery place. In your dashboard, you can monitor each milestone of your shipment.

Can you store my seafreight shipment in your warehouse in the Netherlands?

Yes, we can. You can even request ‘partial storage’, where we will delivery a part of your shipment directly, and store the rest of your goods in our warehouse.

What do I need to create my booking?

You would need: supplier address, delivery address, product information (HS codes) and a commercial invoice. That’s it!

How much do I need to pay?

With seafreight (LCL), you pay per cubic meter. So you pay for the volume your shipment is taking up in the container. With FCL, you pay a fixed fee for the container.
