Doubling depot capacity in 12 months with the power of Flow Integrations.

CHALLENGE

From its early days in the 1970s, the Fliway Group have always been specialist movers of freight. Today, with a number of major multinational clients, the Group is now divided into four businesses that focus on warehousing, freighting, customs clearance and a joint venture with UPS for international parcels. With four businesses comes the challenge of connecting multiple systems in a robust, reliable and affordable way. Flow Software’s integration platform was chosen as the key enabler to company-wide transparency and operational efficiency.

Our ability to develop and innovate inside Flow means it has become fundamental to our operating success. Our business has grown rapidly, particularly this year, and we have had to open new depots quickly to meet demand. It is Flow that has enabled us to do this. Flow connects our core systems and just makes our business work. Flow delivers the same kind of performance as some other integration solutions, but at a significantly more affordable price. I cannot see us ever moving away from Flow.
