Look. Book. Relax.


Say goodbye to waiting for feedback on quote requests. With Instant, you get a reliable rate – online and instantly.


Instead of getting rates subject to changes, Instant offers you transparent and fixed prices upfront. And the earlier you book, the better the deal. Additionally you benefit from extended free time conditions.


With Instant, the commitment goes both ways – we guarantee space on the vessel, and you guarantee the on-time delivery of your cargo.


With Instant Days you can book additional freetime online and decide how much extra time you need.

Book the freetime you really need


With Instant Days you can choose up to 14 days of additional freetime. Simply add the freetime you need at the end of your online buying journey.

You can see the price, standard freetime and additional freetime available up front and benefit from a fixed price. With a discount over the tariff you are also able to save money.

Another benefit of Instant Days: you are on the safe side as you are insured against high costs for demurrage and detention.
