Exciting Relaunch of Freightbook with new Online Ratings Feature

Rachel Humphrey launched Freightbook in July 2009 as a new concept of linking forwarders together at a low-cost and as an alternative to a traditional freight network.

Since then 1500+ companies in 140+ countries have registered with Freightbook and are promoting their services on a global scale whilst at the same time driving traffic to their own websites.

The online directory costs £50 for 2 years registration which also includes a listing in the monthly FB Index, a dedicated online news/PR service, direct quote request leads (approved by Freightbook staff to avoid spam) and automatic amendments to profile pages and users.

Today, Freightbook is enjoying an exciting relaunch with a fabulous new feature inspired by the fact that ratings are now an essential element to any online directory.

"Personally, I always refer to customer ratings before purchasing products online. This applies to service providers too. A recent survey showed that 91% of businesses are influenced by recommendations when making a decision to use a company so we’ve made it super quick and easy to share feedback on our advertisers." - Rachel Humphrey, Founder

Freightbook also recently launched v3.0 of their Smartphone Service at m.freightbook.net where forwarders and suppliers to the freight industry can be found quickly on mobile devices.

Rachel adds “Freightbook is an online business directory dedicated to the transportation industry. There are no rules, registered users are not governed and Freightbook offers no financial protection or arbitration. There are many freight networks already established but some forwarders dislike the ties that are enforced by membership. Freightbook provides an alternative solution for forwarders to find overseas agents ... and to be found.”

Rachel and her team (read more) also run Universal Freight Organisation (est. 2000), Project Cargo Network (est. 2010) and Cargo Connections (est. 2014). Rachel recently graduated with an ILM Level 5 Certificate in Leadership and Management, focusing on innovation and change.
