Freight forwarding software solutions, South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania

Integrated farm to fork logistics, transportation & freight forwarding are among the key business verticals facing uncertainty with many of the macro trends happening in the world right now. The challenges include everything from operational interruptions due to COVID 19, the uncertain state of the global economy, and poor adoption of cost-effective technologies.

Freight business is extremely process driven and involves immense paperwork. Manual processing of information can slow down the delivery process and leads to costly mistakes and errors. Most freight forwarders use multiple systems for various functions that succeed in a disconnected supply chain resulting in poor business visibility, inventory control, and inefficiencies. Lack of a self-service system for customers often results in poor transparency in transactions and leads to customer dissatisfaction. Configuring the best price quotes and optimizing transportation is another headache that makes freight forwarding more complex.
