Liner Agency

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.

One System

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.

FeatureSelect.jpg Export and import shipments - MultiFreight covers general cargo, LCL cargo, and FCL cargo with any number of containers.
FeatureSelect.jpg Voyage management – the system allows you to allocate shipments to voyages, creates export manifests, and produces bulk documentation (such as emailing all parties to advise the arrival for a voyage).
FeatureSelect.jpg Integration with third-party systems – the system allows you to allocate shipments to voyages, creates export manifests, and produces bulk documentation (such as emailing all parties to advise the arrival for a voyage).
FeatureSelect.jpg Vessel-level updating – the system can show details of all your shipments on a specific vessel. If there is a change to key information that affects the vessel (for example, the arrival date changes or the exchange rate fluctuates) the system automatically updates all shipments that are affected by the change.

 

 

 

 

 

FeatureSelect.jpg Arranging transport – the system lets you record all the information you need to generate transport instructions direct from your desk, from simple LCL collections to complex multi-container multi-drop movements. The system’s transport management functions are seamlessly available so you can see and plan overall transport requirements.
FeatureSelect.jpg Automated costing and invoicing – the costing and invoicing functions have been specifically extended in the context of liner agency exports to automate calculations and manage costs and charges in such areas as quay rent, demurrage, and transport costs taking into account mileage, timed deliveries wasted journeys and other factors
FeatureSelect.jpg Integration with transport companies – with MultiFreight, depending on the customers and transport partners you work with, it may be possible for you to use fully automated EDI functionality for transport bookings, acknowledgements, and self-billing including approval against stored tariffs. To enable this, some element of customised development may be required.

Whittle Eastern European Ltd

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.”
