Simplify despatch and save time

We help you simplify multi-carrier and multi-channel despatch, so you can save time and boost efficiency. The combination of our smart technology and practical logistics support eases the pressure by removing complexity and reducing manual error – so your operation can run smoothly and effectively.

We work with you to tailor a solution that meets your needs and scales with you as you grow. Flexible and easy-to-implement, the result is an efficient and productive warehouse environment that supports sustainable business growth.

Multi-tasking despatch technology that streamlines your operation

Our technology is designed to fit snugly with your existing systems and processes, while working to improve and refine your operation in the background.

Print parcel labels fast

GFS Selector helps you print carrier compliant labels for any combination of carrier services at a max speed of 50,000 per hour. The in-built label library offers access to over 1000 carrier services for versatility and contingency. Tracking information is generated in conjunction with our carrier partners and data import options include CSV, barcode scanner or WMS integration.

Intelligent parcel routing

For the ultimate in warehouse efficiency, GFS Expert works with GFS Selector to automatically route customer orders with the most relevant and cost-effective carrier service. Using rules set by you (such as address, parcel size/weight or order value), GFS Expert determines the best service for the job, ready for GFS Selector to print the label.

Consolidate sales channels

GFS Channel Connector consolidates sales channels to streamline and reduce despatch processes. With integrations for eBay, Amazon, Etsy, nothonthehighstreet.com as well as Shopify, Magento and WooCommerce, the Connectors amalgamate order data and print labels automatically while returning tracking information to the customer through the sales channel they ordered from.

Multi-carrier tracking

GFS Seeker is a multi-carrier tracking portal that gives you an over-arching view of every shipment you send. View tracking history, schedule advanced reports, submit claims and book ad hoc collections – this multi-tasker gives you maximum visibility and control of despatch and delivery.

Your logistics expert – Contingency when you need it

GFS Logistics gives you hands-on, practical fulfilment support. With a nationwide fleet of GFS vehicles, we offer a special single collection service which enables you to ship parcels across multiple carriers, with one collection at a time that suits you. Your parcels are then sorted at one of our GFS depots and injected into the relevant carrier networks. With our own logistics network of vehicles, warehouses and pick and pack teams we can provide you with contingency when you need it most.

Sharing our knowledge and experience of eCommerce and logistics, we can act as your sounding board to recommend the best carrier services, comparing service levels and pricing, to help you get the most from delivery.

The combination of GFS Technology with our expertise helps you get the job done hassle free, as we remove the complex and time-consuming elements from your shipping and despatch operation, so you can spend more time on working towards your greater business goals.
