NetSuite for

Transportation, Logistics & Freight Forwarding


The Transportation, Logistics & Freight Forwarding companies have seen a huge surge in demand as people restrict their outdoor shopping due to the current scenario.

This is particularly true for both B2B and B2C catering logistics companies. In the past, logistics and freight forwarding companies increased their market share by providing fast and reliable shipping at a low cost. However, today with the technological advances the logistics companies can differentiate themselves by providing real-time information into ETA of shipments, shipping returns, creation of self-service portals and more. Recognizing the needs of the modern customer is the fundamental basis of transcending your Freight Forwarding, Logistics and 3PL business in the right direction. With your NetSuite implementation, ERP Buddies can assure you that your business will be future-ready starting from day 1 with an all-around transportation management software that utilizes superior cloud technology.
