Although Approved does not have direct control over when and how the bunker fuel price is calculated – we are preparing creative strategies to help you maximize your bottom line.

Our new Transportation Management System (TMS) may be just what you need to alleviate this rise in cost. Lower pricing and expedient rate management will help diminish the effects of increasing ocean fuel prices.
