Interactive Freight Systems (IFS), now known as SmartFreight, started in 1997 and specialises in multi-carrier transport management systems. Its global headquarters are based in Rhodes, Sydney with local distributors in New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland and the UK.
An early believer in using disruptive technology to improve customer experience, they created one of Australia's first generic multi-carrier shipping systems and quickly became a market leader, by putting the customer first, and helping them take back control, with a system that offered versatility, transparency, accountability and efficiency.
SmartFreight works by using client's own freight rates with their own chosen transport providers, loaded into the system by the SmartFreight team. This means customers are still in control of the commercial relationship with their transport providers, not a third party that may have a vested interest promoting certain transport providers.
