Machine Learning for Freight Rate Prediction for Master Logistics, Dubai by Shelter Technology


Master Logistics, a leading logistics company in Dubai, was facing challenges in predicting freight rates, which led to considerable inefficiencies in cost and time management. To address this, the company partnered with Shelter Technology, a renowned tech company specializing in AI and machine learning solutions.



Master Logistics was struggling with the following key issues:

  1. Inaccuracy in Freight Rate Predictions: Without a data-driven solution, the company relied on historical data and manual inputs for rate predictions, often leading to inaccurate estimations.
  2. Inefficiency in Operations: The lack of accurate freight rate predictions resulted in inefficient budget planning and allocation, leading to wasted resources and decreased profitability.
  3. Competitive Disadvantage: In an increasingly digital world, Master Logistics found it difficult to maintain a competitive edge due to its traditional approach to freight rate prediction.

Detailed Solution


Shelter Technology carried out an in-depth analysis of Master Logistics’ data, processes, and requirements. Based on insights gathered, we built a tailored machine learning model to forecast freight rates accurately.

Design and Development


  1. Data Collection: Compiled historical rate data from multiple sources – past client contracts, fuel prices, customs duties, weather data etc.
  2. Data Pre-processing: Cleaned data by handling missing values, duplicates, outliers etc. to prepare it for the ML model.
  3. Feature Engineering: Identified key variables that influence freight rates using statistical analysis and machine learning techniques. Extracted and constructed these features from the data.
  4. Model Development: Tested supervised ML algorithms like linear regression, random forest to predict freight rates based on engineered features. Selected the best performing model.
  5. Model Optimization: Improved model performance by tuning hyperparameters and experimenting with different algorithms. Achieved a high accuracy of 92%.

Testing and Deployment


  1. Model Testing: Rigorously tested the model on unseen data to ensure accuracy and reliability of predictions. Addressed errors through additional data and tweaking model.
  2. Integration & Deployment: Integrated the model with Master Logistics’ TMS. Built a module for easy access to rate forecasts by logistics planning team.
  3. Monitoring & Updates: Monitored model performance post-deployment through accuracy metrics and user feedback. Routinely re-trained model on new data.



The machine learning model delivered the following results:

  • Improved rate forecast accuracy by 23%
  • Reduced fuel costs by 12% through better transportation planning
  • Increased warehouse utilization by 27% using demand predictions
  • Won 15 new clients in 6 months by providing optimal quotes

The solution provided significant cost savings, helped win more bids and gave Master Logistics a competitive edge through data-driven decision making.
