FreightArranger – be part of it

[ July 26, 2013   //   ]

Forwarders are being invited to participate in trials of FreightArranger’s new online brokerage and tracking system for road and rail, which is set to begin its open trial phase.

The system is designed to make it easy for consignors to use rail operations in the UK for freight flows as small as a single container. Companies operating rail freight also benefit by greater exposure for their routes, meaning they can sell more space at lower transaction cost, leading to fuller trains and higher profits.

The company is confident that its software is complete and running smoothly, having identified and ironed out any shortcomings in the closed trial phase.

FreightArranger managing director Nick Radcliffe said: “We have tested the full capability of FreightArranger, which is comprised of numerous specific elements – route, time, gauge, pricing, container capacity, and terminal opening times. Because we’ve tested our system so thoroughly, we are very happy with the way it’s going. It was good to put the system through its paces, and although there were inevitably some teething problems, everything is now up and running smoothly.”
