If you’re in the design, manufacturing, or selling sector, shipping is a critical component in the supply chain that can make the difference between a positive and negative client experience. It’s an important aspect of your service offering, but one over which you rarely have complete control. You have no control over a cargo after it leaves your warehouse, store, or supplier.
In 1997, they set out to improve things. They established one of Australia’s first generic multi-carrier shipping systems as an early believer in employing disruptive technologies to improve customer experience. They became a market leader by prioritizing the customer and assisting them in regaining control through a system that provided flexibility, transparency, responsibility, and efficiency.
Their team loads your customized freight rates with your preferred transport providers, giving you the flexibility you need when you need it. You are given charge of the business relationship with your transport providers.
