Quick Quotes Spot rates have a shorter validity – use Spot when you are ready to book and need to guarantee fulfillment, even if it comes at a premium price.

For added reassurance, they can be purchased with an additional Shipping Guarantee.

This is not yet possible as part of the quotation process. But with our Additional Freetime option, you can easily purchase import detention free time at a discounted price directly after using our Booking tool or via the Hapag-Lloyd Navigator. Through this service, you can buy up to 10 extra days in addition to the standard free-time tariffs (10 days) or to your current contractual agreements.

If the quotation includes a start or an end location that is not a seaport, our system provides the best routing option if available. If a different port of loading or discharge is required, the “Advanced routing” button will give you the option to enter your desired port and you will get a new Quick Quote with this routing.
