SmartFreight® Enterprise has firstly given us the flexibility to change transport carriers without having to rely on the carriers’ software. The ability to use the system to compare prices from various carriers for consignments has also enabled us to make significant savings towards our freight spend. The added feature for us was the ability to send freight on our clients own transport account when appropriate.

The IFS Support Helpdesk has been instrumental to the projects success in their ability to convert and insert large customer databases provided by our clients on regular basis into Groups for batch shipping within very tight turnaround periods

As mentioned above SmartFreight® Enterprise has given ADG the flexibility to provide a number of services to our clients. This in turn has enabled us to grow our business with our existing clients and also take on new business with the confidence of having the tools to service their needs”
