All items or goods shipped through the CarryAm platform must be insured.
There are two types of agents – the Referral agent and the Logistics agent. The referral agent is someone who promotes and markets the CarryAm platform and solution to others, while the logistics agent partners with the platform to provide warehouse and storage facilities and act as a pick-up and drop-off point for carriers and senders.
Register as an agent – referral or logistics – on the platform. Referral agents must have an internet-enabled mobile phone, while logistics agents must have a storage space which will be inspected
Referral agents earn commissions on each logistics fee a referrer pays on the CarryAm platform. Logistics agents earn commissions on items stored in the warehouses. The commissions are paid into the agent’s CarryAm wallet; the agent can then transfer the money into his bank account.
Logistics agents are mandated to have an insurance policy. The amount of insurance determines the kind of goods he can have in his warehouse.
Yes. But the agent will need to create a separate account as a carrier.
Only logistics agents require verification. Once we confirm you have an insurance policy and adequate storage space, you are verified within 48 hours.
Verified agents are empowered with tools, skills and knowledge they will need to act as CarryAm agents. Agents also gain easy access to CarryAm promotional events.
A referral agent promotes and sells the CarryAm solution, while a logistics agent provides warehousing facilities and acts as pick-up and drop-off points for senders and carriers.
Any unclaimed item within a specific period will be returned to CarryAm and the item will be shipped back to the sender.
No. Senders choose where they want their items dropped off.
