Freight forwarding companies ensure the efficient, timely, and cost-effective transfer of goods from one place to another. They specialize in handling complexities of the logistics process on behalf of shippers. They act as an intermediary, ensuring goods arrive at their final destination safely and on time.
The methods of freight forwarding have transformed for the better, mainly because of extensive use of technology. By adopting technology, freight forwarders put themselves in an informed position to manage the risks and benefits of shipping cargo nationally and internationally. But a few forwarders have not made the best use of technology and are facing increased pressure to outdo their competition. In case you are wondering what benefits freight software can bring to your business, read on.
Forecast and Plan for Efficiency
With the help of dashboards, reports, and charts, you can visualize your data and make informed decisions. Freight forwarding software provides meaningful, actionable, and real-time insights related to your shipments, operations, financial performance, and more. It can help enhance your freight forwarding capabilities with in-depth reports, and allow you to make projections by getting a better understanding of your performance.
Give Customers Transparency
Your customers seek information all the time. They need to know or get:
- Best rates for their quotations
- Documents required for customs clearance
- Status of their shipments
- Daily reports
Fetching and providing all this information can be quite a challenge without freight software. Logi-Sys* provides your customers with a dedicated portal where they can:
- Request a quotation
- Make a container booking
- Check the real-time status of their shipment
Customers believe in you when you give them immediate and more control over their solutions.
Monitor Your Finances
It is easy to lose track of the outstanding and payables in the freight forwarding world. Each bill requiring payment can be a series of manual follow-ups. This not only reduces your productivity but also makes you less focused on growing your business. With Logi-Sys, you empower yourself to be on top of every detail regarding finances. Additionally, you can:
- Set limits on the credit that can be availed of by a particular customer
- Consolidate all outstanding
