History

MultiFreight Ltd is a trusted business partner to a wide range of companies throughout the world.

Founded in 1973, as Security Computing Services Ltd (SCS) we have an enviable reputation and evidence of the continuous delivery of effective and valued solutions.

In the early years the principal activity was as a bureau providing a wide range of services to clients and associated companies. Since 1975 SCS specialised in leading technologies and began selling complete mini-computer systems. In 1980 the first Freight Forwarding ‘FORWARD’ system was released followed shortly with ‘SKYWARD’ for Air Freight specialists. 

As a result of a Management Buy Out, SCS Limited became a private company in 1994 and released the centralised multi modal MultiFreight in 1995. In 2000 SCS decided to concentrate exclusively on freight and shipping industry and now have an extensive portfolio of software solutions covering Multi Modal, Customs, Supply Chain, Warehousing, Web Portal, Business Intelligence and Digital Mail Room. The MultiFreight suite of tools are acknowledged to be the most concise and comprehensive solutions available. In April 2014 the decision came to rename and rebrand the company to its well-known flagship solution “MultiFreight”. 

This brings the brand and business together to help clearly define our business goal which is “to deliver the best software solutions & services to enable improved efficiencies and productivity for our clients to achieve their business goals”. We do this in a number of ways which includes embracing the right technologies and using our vast industry experience and personal touch to build long term partnerships with our customers.
