offering combines the online capabilities of Shipwire with NMOA's preferred
carriers and pricing.
From the NMOA Web site, NMOA

management fees. Businesses pay only for the shipping services they need.

CEO of LOC Global, which owns and operates Shipwire. “Through this
development, NMOA customers can gain access to the breadth and depth of

worldwide, and that FedEx, UPS and DHL charge a massive premium for these
same services. With more choices for shipping packages and freight,
businesses can choose the most cost-effective option for each shipment.
Businesses can ship heavy/bulky items to and from more than 80 countries,

With NMOA, small businesses are shielded from liability with:
- Damage/Loss Insurance
Businesses may insure the full declared value of
their shipments with us, regardless of the carrier they choose. This means
that our insurance coverage will come first, without the carrier deciding
coverage, and without a small business having to negotiate with a big
- Money Back Guarantee
Businesses may request a refund or credit if the
carrier misses NMOA's quoted delivery time, barring customs delays. For
moving goods weighing more than 150 pounds, NMOA's Money Back Guarantee is
matched only by FedEx. UPS and DHL make no guarantees. Other carriers charge
a premium of 30-50%.
- Price Protection Policy
For qualified shipments, businesses may request a refund or credit if they
are billed more than NMOA quoted them. This Price Protection Policy is
unique in the shipping industry, and is only available through NMOA. It is
designed to protect businesses from the hidden fees, monthly charges and
overcharges so prevalent with FedEx, UPS and DHL.
When a business needs more administrative savings and in-transit visibility,
it can upgrade to a professional account. This free and instant upgrade
gives a business three capabilities:
A business can control costs by creating
sub-accounts for each branch of its business, and for each supplier that
ships to its location.
Add My Pricing
A business can add its carriers, and its pricing, to
specific sub-accounts. If NMOA gets better discounts on a specific shipment,
the user can choose the NMOA price.
Add a Credit Line
A business can receive one detailed monthly bill for
all shipping, and monitor multiple users from one central account.
