Is your legacy freight forwarding system holding you back?
Doing business by phone and e-mail, relying on complicated spreadsheets and jumping between endless browser tabs, just doesn’t cut it anymore.
The truth is, legacy logistics software systems are lacking in the real-time visibility and modern automation and integration features that modern freight forwarders need. Without the right functionality, it’s simply impossible to up their customer experience while still keeping the bottom line in check.
As a freight forwarder, you know how many systems you need to connect with to get a shipment to its destination. From customs agencies to various agents, disparate data sources often require duplicate manual data entry that slows everything down and kills your productivity. What’s more, maintaining an obsolete or homegrown freight management system is a waste of precious resources that does nothing to advance your business.
Modernize your business with the features you need to grow and achieve your goals. Magaya Supply Chain, the Magaya Digital Freight Portal, Magaya Rate Management, Magaya Customs Compliance, Magaya CRM, and the collection of Magaya extensions will give you everything you need to delight your customers and prepare for a bright road ahead.
