Thanks for your reply Sue. As per the original post, many of our customers are 80km or more from major freight centres. 95% of our customers are in the country, not the city, hence the issue with freighting. Land Transport who we now use, cover the major cities, but it’s the regional areas that are not covered adequately. We don’t have the time or resources to be chasing carriers in every location around Australia – of which there are thousands. Most of our enquiries come from Qld, NSW and Victoria. NSW in particular is difficult as Land Transport, do not cover the east coast including Newcastle. Mainfreight used to be great as they had a huge network of on-forwarders and could cover nearly everywhere.
