SmartFreight® works to provide users a choice between the best carriers across the UK

SmartFreight® is proud to be supporting this year’s SHD Logistics Conference. The event takes place on 17 April 2018 at the British Museum, London, with confirmed speakers including: Amazon, Ocado, Sainbury's, Pharmacy2U and Wincanton.

This year’s event is particularly exciting for SmartFreight® fans as it explores the key opportunities, innovations and concepts around adopting new technologies and the impact these will have on the supply chain sector. So important is the subject of transformative technology that demand for places has been overwhelming and the event is completely sold out.

Ben Woodward, Channel Manager at SmartFreight®, said: “The popularity of the event is just another indication of how important modern technology is to maximising the bottom line and cutting costs across the supply chain. We are delighted to be sponsoring and I know the team is looking forward to making new connections and introducing people to the benefits of multi-carrier shipping solutions.”

SmartFreight® works to provide users a choice between the best carriers across the UK, allowing them in turn to offer the best customer experience. It runs on any device with any operating system and has been further enhanced to now be available on or off customer premises.

It can also host a tracking portal that displays a company’s carrier tracking events. SmartFreight® is fully scalable to meet the needs of everything from a start-up ecommerce business to large multinational operations with global distribution centers.

SmartFreight® has more than 20,000 users shipping more than 75 million items each year. It works with some 6,500 transport providers, shipping into 195 countries around the world, moving cargo valued at over £450m each year.
