East African Online Transport Agency (EAOTA)
Who We Are?

East African Online Transport Agency Limited (EAO) is a transport and logistics facilitation company. We facilitate essential transport services to industry players across the region through our online platform - www.eaotransport.com
Who Do We Work With?

EAO works with shippers (importers and exporters), transporters, clearing agents, independent agents (brokers), shipping agents and shipping lines.

What We Do?
EAO utilizes an online platform to link shippers (cargo owners and/or clearing agents - importers and exporters) to transporters (truck owners). This platform enables fast, efficient and cost effective movement of cargo in East Africa by providing key stakeholders just-in-time leads to both transport ( for cargo owners) and cargo ( for truck owners).
By signing up and logging into the system, transporters can locate available cargo and if the cargo fits the profile of what their trucks can carry, they accept the contract offer price and the cargo owner is immediately notified . An option of a counter offer is also available. If acceptable by the cargo owner, the transporter will also be notified.
The same applies for cargo owners who upload details of their cargo and can then select trucks from the listing of trucks available and send in their offers. Truck owners will be notified and can accept the contract offer price or place a counter offer. If acceptable by the cargo owner, the transporter will be notified.

We believe that it is possible to attain the European position where the containers have no waiting time at the port (ship offloading directly to transport) and 2 days to the border. As, EAO we are committed to ensuring the secure and timely movement of cargo within East Africa.
