"By the end of 1995 we had around 38,000 visitors which has progressively grown over a decade cumulating in over 361,000 unique visitors in 2004 which produced 3.85 million page impressions and we handled over one million freight enquiry emails."

After several months of development its 10th anniversary edition is now live and still offers free listing but also includes Premium membership plus advertising opportunities therefore increasing exposure for companies wishing to promote their services to a wider audience.

Over the coming months Freightnet visitors will see further enhancements expanding the existing sectors and categories making it an essential tool for freight professionals.

James Conroy, CEO of Freight Forward International says "We have been listed in for several years. It has brought us many enquiries through the email enquiry system which allows interested parties to contact any of the listed companies and from what we see it is actively used globally." Furthermore, he adds "I can see that the new version of the site will increase our exposure and we are upgrading to a Premium Listing to maximise our potential."

Paul Smith concludes "for the future, the Freightnet strategy is to retain our position by striving to provide up to date information, news, features and enhancements thus maintaining a top-quality global freight community."
