GFS software offer

Global Freight Solutions is making its multi-carrier delivery management software available via free registration.

The GFS software will be tiered, so that customers shipping fewer than 50 parcels a day will face no on-going charges while larger clients will pay minimal transactional fees but have additional features, such as “smart-routeing” and e-commerce shopping trolley integration.

GFS chief Neil Cotty said: “What we’ve decided to do might surprise some because, in effect, we’re giving away some of the secrets of our success for free. However, we believe what we have to offer can make the sort of positive difference to the way large numbers of businesses handle parcel deliveries in a way that no other company in the sector can.”

Those signing-up with GFS would be entitled to download its software, GFS Selector, onto their PCs, enabling them to choose a range of ‘best fit’ carriers for their individual requirements and generate specialist carriers’ own labels even if internet connections failed. Such label production would, said Cotty, be cheaper than GFS’s competitors.
