Winfreight Additional Plug-ins

Client In-house system
The Winfreight in-house system is a standalone system that is easily deployed to your client's premises to assist with Waybill\Label printing, waybill capture\billing, quoting, and manifesting. Data is electronically transferred to the head office to prevent double capturing and streamline the entire in-house process.

POD Mailer
The is an automatic response system that will reply to email request with the requested POD information. Clients simply send an email to an email address that has been designated for these requests ([email protected]), with the waybill number\s in the subject line and the system will reply to the email with the POD details. If an image is available, the system will attach the image to the reply. The benefits of this system are two fold:
