Where do we come from?
In 2006, Mark Kristensen, founded CON-LINQ with the idea to create visibility around freight rates and link to a quoting tool which could update all sea freight offers as one simple task. The quoting tool was implemented in a global Danish freight forwarding company and saved sales- and sea freight operation a lot of time and their customers were happy, that offers were sent in due time.
Over time, more freight forwarding companies start using our product fLex, and we have used inputs from many global freight forwarders to create digital transformations tools for all transport modes with the purpose of improving quality, customer service, and productivity.
fLex is a platform supporting global freight forwarding companies with an extensive rate engine and flexible booking platform for all transport modes.
Whether you are a global or a regional freight forwarder, fLex modules can be customized to increase efficiency in your rate management and support your growth.
fLex offers its transport partners to be the digitalization partner and the opportunity to optimize their processes for each individual transport mode, so costs are saved and the customers experience the benefits of a modern digital rate and booking platform. We can also offer our customers custom development in combination with the fLex product. Our solutions allow the transport partners to concentrate on their core business.
It is our mission to create Visibility:
- Visibility across transport stakeholders and geographies
- Visibility in communication enables you to control all parties, from shipping line, airlines, truckers, freight forwarders and customers.
- Rate Visibility: In general, rates from suppliers are with confusing terms and surcharges that makes the comparison challenging and your team needs to compare rates as quickly and efficiently as possible to do their jobs. Applying technology to achieve rate transparency can help organizations ensure that the most cost-effective rates, at the right service level, are consistently used.

It's a tool where freight operation can perform at a lower cost and establish a tighter relation with their customers.
How do we work?

This does not mean that each developer is alone, but the responsibility is clear and then each person can pull competencies from other team members when needed. We are located the Søborg, Denmark, but are working with customer data entry and application teams in China, India, Philippines, USA, Nepal and many other countries.
