PSL Freight was founded in 1984 as a result of a management buyout led by the Group’s Managing Director, John King. Initially operating as a niche forwarder, the company focused its activities mainly on the fashion markets of Italy and Portugal, supported by a 24 hour Customs Clearance operation in Dover.
The group prides itself on excellence and innovation, gaining industry awards and recognition on the way. The PSL group is a global forwarder well positioned to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
“ When the PSL Group required a solution to meet the demand for the growing need of instant information within their global freight business, they chose MultiFreight. PSL were running a plethora of freight and logistics related systems which were difficult to manage and enhance.
Integrating the disparate systems, including accounts, customs, EDI and warehousing with traditional air, road and sea forwarding, was something PSL felt they could not risk without the utmost trust in the integrity and resources of MultiFreight. Of paramount importance was linking the six PSL locations via a virtual private network (VPN), using Citrix technology to maximise the speed of connection to the main database.
MultiFreight provided active project management from day one, removing the need for us to worry about any potential oversight or pitfall. The MultiFreight service team provided a much smoother implementation than we ever expected. It is easy to be lured by impressive-looking software, but the real success of IT is making sure that the users gain the real benefits of the software. In this respect MultiFreight have proved to be first class. "
