Amid increasingly volatile markets, the importance of the freight trader is at an all-time high. Focused on proactively managing the business’ freight and fuel exposure, the trader is highly dependent upon accurate visibility into the business’ contracts and ever-changing market rates.

With a robust, market-linked trading and risk workspace, the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP) empowers traders to assess and hedge exposure more efficiently, and with full knowledge of the impact of each trade.
