Road Freight

Today’s European trailer market has changed beyond recognition from a few decades ago. The European Single Market, the Euro and recent EU expansion have left agents competing with low margins and strong competition from trailer and air freight operators – which means every competitive edge counts.

Our integrated Road Freight software can help you streamline your operations, becoming more efficient and productive in the process. It provides full, effective functionality for running international trailer shipments in the EU and beyond – imports, exports, groupage consolidations, full and co-loads.

You can create CMRs to a range of statutory requirements, and add a range of extra functionality from other ForwardOffice modules.
