Impatex managing director Peter Day

NetFreight – the browser-based multi-modal freight management system from Impatex – has just undergone its largest-ever upgrade, embodying many new and enhanced features. The latest release is particularly designed to satisfy the needs of larger, multi-branch customers.

Chief among the new features of NetFreight is its e-Freight capability: all users can now send electronic airwaybills in the form of FWB and FHL messages direct from the system. The introduction of this feature follows successful trials among Impatex’s NetFreight customers in the USA.

NetFreight now includes a full warehouse management system that stores and updates information such as stock levels, which can be made visible to customers via the internet.

The program also embodies a new inbuilt report generator with a high degree of customization; however, customers can still use third-party packages such as Crystal Reports or SQL for reporting, should they prefer.

Comprehensive permissions now enable NetFreight administrators to give users tailor-made access levels: a development particularly aimed at larger, more complex organisations where separate departments deal with different aspects of shipments. Inbuilt auditing keeps track of every action by staff dealing with a given shipment, improving accountability.

Many existing functions of NetFreight have meanwhile been enhanced: its track and trace screens can now be customized to accommodate customers’ individual data requirements and can even carry their own corporate identities, so projecting a more professional image to their clients. Customers accessing the NetTrak facility can now print stored documents locally.

Emails can now be sent direct from NetFreight, obviating the need to open a separate email client. The program’s courier functions have also been expanded and enhanced. In addition, NetFreight now generates and sends automatic post flights to customers by email.

Says Impatex MD Peter Day: “NetFreight has come of age. It’s now a powerful freight management system with much richer functionality, comparable with any other system on the market. This latest release makes it a viable option for any forwarder, from the smallest upwards – including those with multiple locations in multiple countries.

“At the same time, NetFreight retains its unique browser-based format and functionality: notably the ability to use it from an iPad or laptop while away from the office. Increasingly, it’s this ability to work on the move that is attracting more and more customers away from traditional desk-based systems.”
