Founded in 1973, as Security Computing Services Ltd (SCS) we have an enviable long-standing reputation, evidence of our continuous delivery of effective and valued solutions.
In the early years the principal activity of SCS Ltd was to act 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 afterwards by ‘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 providing solutions for the 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 is acknowledged to be the most concise and comprehensive group of solutions available.
In April 2014 the decision was made 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. 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.
