Alibaba is integrating freight procurement into its business-to-business e-commerce platform, the company announced Tuesday. Alibaba Freight had been in a pilot phase for a couple of months and will now be available to buyers on certain trade routes.

Alibaba Freight will be powered by the Freightos online freight marketplace and allow shippers to “compare, book, manage and track ocean and air freight in real-time online,” the company said in a press release.

Shippers using Alibaba’s platform are often moving containers and pallets. The new service will allow them to compare prices for air and ocean freight within the e-commerce platform, the company said.
