AMI launches Click2Ship
Neutral air freight consolidator Air Menzies International has launched an online express product that it said provides freight agents and courier companies with fast quotes and competitive rates.
Click2Ship allows freight agents and courier companies to compare services from large integrators, such as FedEx, DHL and UPS, and obtain instant, all-inclusive quotes. Also included in Click2Ship are AMI Express' existing GS (integrator-based) and GX (airline-based) airport-to-door services. Further service options and destinations will be added to Click2Ship in the future, the company said.
AMI noted one of Click2Ship's key features is its new 'collect and deliver' service, which enables customers to choose whether to have consignments collected from their own premises, or direct from their shipper anywhere in the U.K. mainland.
In addition, Click2Ship allows users to check closeouts and transit times and make bookings, and features extensive on-screen help, and offers an instant chat help facility linked to AMI Express customer service staff.
Re-keying of previously entered data is alleviated by autofilling data fields, and Click2Ship prints consignment notes and labels. After booking, the system enables customers to track their shipments online, and print proofs of delivery, AMI said.
To preserve AMI's neutrality, access to Click2Ship is password protected; new customers must pre-register, while existing AMI online customers can log in using their normal details.
