Belaroma Coffee

At a Glance

As a Sydney based coffee roaster Belaroma has grown to be one of the biggest supplier and related equipment distributor to independent cafes and larger retail chains in Australia. With approximate yearly sales of $15 Million and growing Belaroma is firmly situated at the forefront as the leading Australian coffee producer and distributor.

“SmartFreight® has allowed Belaroma to despatch more efficiently and accurately than ever before across multiple carriers.

Since integrating IFS SmartFreight® with our internal ERP system Micronet we have negated the double input of data between two systems and associated error rework. This has had an additional positive effect in the reduction of credit notes for our accounts department.

Being able to add or change Carriers has never been simpler and smoother and SmartFreight® takes care of all EDI data to the various carriers concerned. Our customer service department is able to answer any freight enquiries as information is readily available directly through SmartFreight®.

This is the best return on investment we have ever seen in a transport management system with savings of 25k year on year and I would positively recommend the IFS solution to any company utilising multiple transport carriers”
