'Fleet' is a new online platform that allows users to find and rate freight forwarders. Dubbed the "Yelp for international cargo shipping," this platform makes shipping logistics easier for small and medium-sized enterprises.

The platform is called 'Fleet' and was founded by Max Lock after he realized how problematic international shipping can be for small companies. He designed Fleet as a way for business owners to rate freight forwarders and avoid high markups on shipping services. The app currently lists 6,000 freight forwarders and lets users sort through their profiles based on rating, price, location and shipping lanes.

For small companies trying to get their business off the ground, commercial shipping can be a major obstacle. The Fleet platform makes the process easier by matching business owners with freight forwarders who can serve their specific needs.
