We create intuitive, flexible software for growing freight forwarders.
Our innovative software can help you to transform and scale your business –
providing a complete end-to-end freight management platform.
From quoting through to warehouse management – FREIGHTsoft® gives operators the tools they need, and stakeholders the key insights they've always wanted.
FREIGHTsoft has been designed to automate repetitive tasks and provide real-time checks and balances for all operations staff.
You need information that was relevant as of one second ago - not the last time a scheduled process ran on your server.
Entirely web based, your users can access FREIGHTsoft from anywhere you've authorised with just a web browser.
We've been building software for over two decades. At the forefront of all our applications is a strong focus on providing a user interface – and a user experience – that is simple and intuitive for the end user. Together with our pioneering first customer we set out to change what software meant to the freight and logistics industry.
What does this mean? It means that we start at the beginning by asking questions such as "what is the user trying to achieve?" and "what would help them perform this task?".
The result is streamlined and finely-honed processes, with common actions, helpful information, and useful insights put front-and-centre.
A user should be able to access the quotes they've created today with a single click - not five. Generating a quote for a customer? Then you'll probably want to see this customer's recent quote history as you do.
FREIGHTsoft provides a complete CRM solution that allows your sales team to effectively manage every interaction they have with your customers.
By automating common actions or making them available with a single click, you're able to provide an unparalleled level of service and allow your team to get on with the business of selling.
Automatically invoice your larger customers at the end of each month to your agreed credit terms. Send them booking confirmations with the click of a mouse. See in a single view any account that the system has automatically marked as a downtrader due to their sales activity (or lack thereof!).
We recognise that customers are your most important asset - and provide all the tools you need to make sure they know that too.
Our revolutionary load planner brings collaborative load planning to your team. Users can work with other members of their team to plan loads in real-time via a simple drag and drop interface. Other users are updated as and when changes happen, without ever having to refresh.
The load planner also features a host of automated checks and balances that ensure your operators are acting within defined constraints.
One of the team added a hazardous goods consignment to a load? They'll see any incompatibilities with consignments already assigned to that load in real-time.
And perhaps where you're not. FREIGHTsoft gives you the insight into the areas of your business that are performing well by breaking down all profit streams, be it by client or for the business as a whole - into routes, commodities, and any other factor.
Powered by our CRM system, we give all users – be they operations, sales, or accounts – the information they need in order to make prudent and profitable decisions as and when they're making them.
Our powerful, integrated HAZculator® gives operators real-time feedback on whether a load is compatible, and allows them or your DGSA to delve into the detail as they need to.
Moving a consignment half-way around the world is never a precise science. Customers book consignments as 100kg when it really weighs 135kg. Operators make mistakes and forget to bill correctly. Consignments can sometimes get damaged during transit.
FREIGHTsoft expects the unexpected - and is flexible enough to allow your team to deal with the unforeseen as and when it happens, while providing you with the accountability you need.
FREIGHTsoft comes with all the functionality you need to run your freight or logistics business as standard. No optional extras, no costly upgrades.
Quote your customers based on agreed tariffs with your suppliers, using pre-defined profit margins.
All communication with FREIGHTsoft and the data stored within is encrypted using industry-standard techniques.
Generate and send invoices with a single click. FREIGHTsoft also continually synchronises with your accountancy software to give you accurate financial positions.
Our dynamic reporting tool allows you to interrogate and extract information from FREIGHTsoft at any time and export it in Excel or CSV format for further manipulation.
Having been using the system live since the start of January 2017, FREIGHTsoft has fundamentally changed our processes and the way we operate as a business. The level of detail and the streamlined workflow, the availability of vital data, and the incorporation of our HAZculator into the platform has already seen huge operational benefits.
Being able to post invoices to Sage, in bulk, with a single click has made all of the accounts teams' lives a lot simpler. Also being able to see at a glance what every customer owes has made the job of getting paid on time so much easier.
Being able to plan loads together without having to pass around an Excel spreadsheet was a game changing moment for us as a team.
Having IMDG & ADR data at your fingertips has meant we're able to catch every issue before it becomes a problem. Likewise, being able to immediately see who changed what and when allows us to identify any problem areas and quickly rectify them.
Being able to track what customers are profitable for which routes has allowed us to ramp up business with the customers that matter most for us.
We at last have a CRM facility that finally delivers real time information, enabling the sales team to monitor and control down trading customers including revenue and profitability. Linked with our accountancy program, we now clear visibility of the customers' payment trends, allowing us to determine the overall picture of a particular clients worth to the business.

We price using a 'per user per month' model that ensures you don't pay for any license that you're not actively using. We offer a tiered pricing structure that both lowers the barrier-to-entry for small businesses, and offers substantial discounts for larger businesses.

While we're busy building the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) version of FREIGHTsoft (due for release Q2 2019), you can choose to host your instance of FREIGHTsoft on your own hardware or we can host it for you in the cloud.
Our chosen cloud provider is Google - who are fully ISO27001 accredited and GDPR compliant. Though we can also host it using your own cloud provider if you already have an existing relationship.
If you'd like to find out more details about our hosting options then please get in touch to discuss further.
Now a separate entity, Freightsoft Ltd makes use of Yozu's extensive experience of building and launching software solutions for the finance, transport and manufacturing sectors along with Ital's decades of industry knowledge and expertise to develop a product that is truly unique for the freight industry.
In short, yes. If the system provides a way of interacting with it, we can develop a means for talking with it. Our developers have already developed a number of integrations that allow the core product to interact with Sage and HMRC customs data.
Please get in touch with one of our development team who will be happy to discuss your requirements and offer some potential solutions.
While we have tried to cater for all common functionality needed by a modern freight or logistics business, we appreciate that each business is unique and you may have certain processes or functions that you would need to be implemented in order for FREIGHTsoft to be successful for your company.
Our development team can tailor your instance of FREIGHTsoft to provide for any and all functionality you need. To get more detail and discuss your requirements further, please get in touch.
After four years in development, we've been busy battle-hardening FREIGHTsoft in the field for the past 18 months with our first customer. With over 35,000 jobs successfully managed, we've now proven FREIGHTsoft is ready for the wider market.
