Shipping with a digital freight forwarder
With Cargoboard as a digital freight forwarder, you can book shipments online at any time. Quick and easy!
Our digital process management enables transparent handling and seamless tracking of your freight.
Below we explain how our forwarding service is structured.
How does a digital freight forwarding company work?
By booking online at my.cargoboard.com you can book the shipment of your goods at any time in just a few minutes. We only need the weight of your goods, the dimensions and the loading and unloading location. You can choose between standard delivery, a climate protection contribution or a premium delivery.
The right packaging for freight forwarding
We ship groupage freight, bulky goods, dangerous goods, Less Than Truck Loads and Full Truck Loads. It is important that you pack your goods appropriately for transport. From 30kg weight of goods or dimensions of 120 x 60 x 60 cm you have to ship your goods on a pallet. We recommend sending the goods packaged in cardboard boxes or bubble wrap.
The collection usually takes place between 10 am and 4 pm. Within Germany, it is possible to send freight within 24-48 hours. Within the EU, shipping takes 2-7 days depending on the route.
The standard method for collection and delivery for your shipments is “free curbside”. This means, unless otherwise agreed, your goods will be collected by us at the curb.
With groupage freight, we handle your goods in a central warehouse and distribute them on efficient truck routes. If you book a Full Truck Load, your goods will be transported directly to their destination.
The delivery of your goods
Delivery usually takes place between 8 am and 2 pm. The standard delivery is free curbside. You are welcome to contact our service team to discuss a destination other than “curbside”.
At this point, the consignee accepts the goods from the carrier and thereby confirms their intactness.

CargoLine as a forwarding partner
Cargoboard as a digital freight forwarder is a subsidiary of the CargoLine. As a forwarding partner, CargoLine offers a professional network of forwarding service providers throughout Europe. Due to the predominantly owner-operated, long-standing partner companies, CargoLine offers a pronounced proximity to the customer, a high degree of flexibility, also with regard to individual tariff structures, and cooperation at eye level.
The reach through the umbrella organization is a strong advantage of CargoLine. The European freight forwarding network consists of more than 80 partners in 43 countries in Western and Eastern Europe, the CIS countries, as well as the Near and Middle East and North Africa. This will enable more than 600 direct shipments and a domestic and international hub system. The shipping system also enables seamless track and trace.
Safe freight forwarding with Cargoboard
Contrary to common belief, goods are not insured by default when shipped by a freight forwarder. We therefore recommend that you take out shipping insurance. Compared to the value of the goods, the insurance is relatively cheap. The insurance costs start at 5,50€. For 5,00 € per 1.000 € value of goods you can secure yourself with shipping insurance.

With Cargoboard you can track your shipments digitally at any time. Enter your order number in the field provided in the track and trace.
