Freight Forwarding and Management Overview

Our powerful freight management software solution Freightfax 4 has been designed to help you manage global freight for sea, air and land movements. Our software has been developed with an in-depth understanding of the unique and complex needs of the freight industry; experience which led us to produce a system to simplify your daily tasks and reduce your administration costs.


Let's make it easy

Our Freightfax4 software has been designed to make your job easier and provide you with all the tools you will ever need to deliver your movements in the most cost effective manner possible. All our products and solutions are backed up by a reliable support team delivered by experts specialising solely in the development of international freight management solutions since 1984.

Work, Manage, Share

Our document storage facility allows paperwork relating to specific jobs to be electronically filed and recovered easily with minimum time and effort. This functionality is extended with additional Vixsoft plug-ins allowing users to, not only attach documents directly from within Microsoft Outlook 2007 and above, but have the ability for the system to receive bulk scanned documents produced by the system e.g. PODs with signatures and automatically attach them to the original job.

Scale as you need

Freighfax4 offers you exceptional flexibility as it can be scaled to suit your particular requirements. Choose from a comprehensive suite of standard modules which can then be adapted, if required, to complement your methods of working. Our Software provides you with the option of adding on modules as you need them, giving you a system that is able to meet the demands of a growing and ever-changing business.

Company Wide Visibility

Corporate data for freight groups is held within the central Vixsoft databank. Updates are instantaneously available system-wide, facilitating immediate visibility to users throughout the group regardless of their location. Data need only be entered once as information is seamlessly passed to other areas of the software without the need for re-keying data, increasing efficiency and accuracy of projects through dramatic reduction of labour and risk.
