Revolutionizing International Shipping
Simplified | Safe | Swift
Awele makes international shipping of vehicles and heavy goods as easy as booking a flight online- cheaper, safer and faster. Combining advanced technologies, data analytics and years of international shipping experience, we’re building a next-generation technology to simplify every aspect of international shipping and trade, including obtaining quotes, submitting shipment information, monitoring shipping status, transferring funds, and declaring custom tariffs.
For the Shippers, we simplify their painful shipping experience by providing instant accurate quotes, transparent prices, vetted service providers, and easy to use technology. For logistics providers, we automate their time-consuming internal processes (shipment management, realtime tracking, etc), so they can spend the time we save them to serve more customers and grow their business.
Our mission is to make international shipping of heavy goods cheaper, faster and safer.
Our vision is to build an ecosystem that connects everyone in the international shipping value chain, empowering buyers, sellers and logistics providers of all sizes to grow and thrive.
