At a Glance

Gazal Corporation Limited is one of the largest publicly listed branded apparel companies in Australia.

Based in Sydney and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, the company specialises in developing and building national and international brands in the apparel and fashion accessories industry.

Gazal is a leading apparel supplier of casualwear, men's business shirts, intimate apparel and school wear sold under such brand names as Van Heusen, Calvin Klein, Body Nancy Ganz, Bisley, Midford and Bracks.

“The SmartFreight® Enterprise management system has allowed us to use multiple carriers through the one common platform while interfacing with our SAP R3 system allowing a seamless flow of data between ordering, packing and despatching of our freight.

SmartFreight® is a user friendly system which has allowed Gazal to control its destiny by not being locked in to a particular carrier provider. The ability to consolidate freight has achieved a saving of $65,000 on freight costs annually. The opening of our new web store allowed us to quickly utilise the system for business to consumer deliveries

The IFS IT department has been exceptional especially when requesting a change to system to suit Gazal. All additional work was performed to schedule each and every time.

Any company wishing to utilise a Transport Management System should seriously look at what IFS SmartFreight® has to offer.”
