Cedars is able to offer better RORO rate to our clients by combining different custom volumes together.
In some cases, the freight savings that Cedars achieved for its clients mean 1%-2% of FOB reduction.
Cedars will take only 30% of the freight savings as comission for the first year.
For example, suppose the client is paying USD1,000,000 freight annually, if the new freight Cedars obtains for the client is USD900,000 annually, the commission for Cedars will be only USD30,000 (or 30% of the first year freight savings).
