Many of the carriers need a reliable agent in port to take care of husbandry matters. They need agents who have strong relationships with local companies who have the skills to deliver cost effective and on-time services. MultiFreight has been designed with functionality to manage the Liner & Ships Husbandry operations.
From within the liner agency functions you have access to all of the core business functionality as well as the specialised support you need to manage a liner agency business.
MultiFreight’s user interface comprises specific data-entry screens that allow liner agencies to take cargo bookings, arrange transport, manage vessel allocation and manifesting, produce bills of lading, organise cargo release and collect charges. Where you are also providing a forwarding service, MultiFreight allows you to fully integrate liner agency functionality with sea freight export and import and Customs processing.
There are numerous benefits of a centralised solution with the main one being that users only key-in information ONCE and once only. We are then able to take this information and take it through the relevant workflow.
e.g. a quotation is changed into a job, the job details are used to EDI to the Sea Carrier, they are also used handle the customs declaration and all the way along the relevant documentation is created which can be printed or emailed including invoicing.

Natasha Sabanovic - Managing Director
“We moved to using MultiFreight in 2006. Before that we used a bespoke package that had been written for us, but it was very limited in its capabilities.
MultiFreight works well for our business because of its functionality and speed, and because we can customise the system. The level of support has also improved since moving to MultiFreight and their friendly and approachable team of staff are easily accessible and often available at short notice.
What distinguishes Whittle is the skill of our people and their ability to communicate clearly with our customers throughout Eastern Europe. The MultiFreight system is what supports our people and it is this combination of people and technology that allows us to deliver the highest quality of service for our customers.”
