[UKPRwire, Thu Feb 25 2010] Freightbook, the new online freight directory has exceeded all expectations with almost 400 companies in over 120 countries registered in the 6 months since their formation.
Having identified a gap in the marketplace and after working on an exciting, new concept of online advertising and business networking, Freightbook.net was launched in July 2009, to provide company owners with a global advertising platform at a low cost of only US $82 per year.
Managing Director, Rachel Humphrey says “Our registered companies understand our brand new concept and vision and I truly believe that their foresight will earn them good business over the next 12 months."
Rachel adds “The recession has accelerated the migration of advertising spending to digital technology. Online advertising within the freight industry is growing fast as business owners recognise that neutral platforms like Freightbook provide the perfect component for their Internet marketing strategies.
It is true that our industry still has a rollercoaster of a year ahead, but even in tough economic conditions, companies still acknowledge the value of marketing, advertising and networking, especially at our low cost of only US82 per year. That is why within just a matter of months, we had representation in over 120 countries."
Freightbook provide a personalized service and can tell its registered companies how many visitors have viewed their full profile, as well as providing an Online Groups section where professionals can promote and discuss how to improve or modify the services they provide.
The 1st neutral Freightbook Networking Event will take place in November 2010 in Greece. The all-inclusive event hopes to be a huge 1-2-1 B2B networking opportunity designed with one objective – to provide a platform for Senior Managers from all over the world to meet and network. The Registration Fee (from E495) includes all food and drink. In fact the tax-deductible business expense includes everything except travel costs, unlike many sales meetings!
Due to their early success, Freightbook have introduced new additional benefits to their US $82 annual registration, including a Monthly Mail-out. On the 1st day of every month, all registered companies receive an email containing the primary contact details (company name, email, website) for each fellow Freightbook advertiser in alphabetical order by country. The mail-out has proven to be great marketing for registered companies and also the perfect reference when looking for new agents.
Freightbook’s long term goal is to be a one-stop-website for the entire freight industry, where companies can promote their services, find new partners and use the latest Internet technology to network and communicate with each other.
In January 2000, Rachel founded an ISO 9001:2000 Certified worldwide network of independent freight forwarders (http://www.universalfreightorg.com/). Today, the organisation is one of the only remaining exclusive freight networks recruiting 1 representative per country. The established network consists of approved forwarders actively working together in over 105 countries.
Rachel also established a Global Trade Lead Directory (http://www.import-export-cargo.com/) with the aim of bringing international buyers and sellers together. The website has fast become a leading online resource with 2500+ listings of international manufacturers and suppliers.
Having identified a gap in the marketplace and after working on an exciting, new concept of online advertising and business networking, Rachel launched Freightbook Ltd in July 2009.
Rachel saw a trend where business owners, especially in the height of the recession, needed a low cost platform to promote their company services on a global scale, and use the latest Internet technology to network and communicate with each other.
