TimoCom selects IFL as first UK case study

International Forwarding (IFL) is proud to announce that it will form TimoCom’s first case study in the UK, following a meeting at Multimodal 2015, Birmingham NEC, in April.

IT company TimoCom is Europe’s market leader in vehicle and freight exchanges with 100,000 subscribers and operations in 44 European countries.

It has been developing subscriber case studies as part of its promotional portfolio and has selected International Forwarding for its first such study in the UK. International Forwarding has been a TimoCom subscriber since 1994 and through the company’s European freight and vehicle exchange service has established developed regular business with companies in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Switzerland and several of the former Eastern Bloc countries.

Reducing freight costs

TimoCom gives forwarders and carriers the opportunity to offer rates for full-load, part-load and groupage consignments and to advertise vehicle capacity. This reduces empty running costs and enables subscribers to establish contacts with partners offering special services such as tail-lift collections and deliveries, hazardous freight and time-sensitive transports.

International Forwarding has also benefited from being listed in TimoCom’s warehouse exchange, which is used by forwarders and hauliers seeking a short notice drop-off facility in the Birmingham area as a result of frustrated deliveries.

The meeting at Multimodal allowed the TimoCom team to find out further details of the growth and development of International Forwarding, and to discuss how it could help the company to meet its future objectives.

IFL sales director Nigel Parsons said: “We are looking forward to teaming up with Timocom for their UK case study.  This is an excellent opportunity to showcase both their work and how we create efficiencies and reduce costs for our own customers.”
