South Africans ready to click to ship
25 / 08 / 2015
AMI has extended its click2ship service to its South African operations. The system allows bona fide freight agents to obtain online, all-inclusive quotations for shipments, including collection and delivery, which can subsequently be converted to bookings. Additional services such as insurance can also be booked online.
The service was first launched in the UK in 2010, and has since extended to its Australia, the South Pacific and the Americas.
In South Africa, AMI click2ship is initially available for non-dangerous goods export shipments up to 200kg, to any non-restricted worldwide destination.
AMI’s vice president for Africa, Milton French said: “The increasingly sophisticated freight industry in South Africa is ready for this service, which combines very competitive rates with the ability to obtain fast, accurate quotations. This can often make the difference between an agent winning or losing potential business.
“Our aim is to level the playing field for small and medium agents, and enable them to compete with the large multi-nationals. click2ship provides them with another route to success.”
