About Zencargo

Zencargo is the Digital Freight Forwarder with a vision of a world with smarter trade.

Our revolutionary digital platform collects and centralises crucial shipping data for end to end operations, allowing teams to get real time visibility into the progress of their shipments, and empowering Business Leaders to make better, faster and more informed decisions.
