Tell us a bit about your company


First and foremost, Freeline Movers stands as a leading packing, shipping, transportation, freight forwarding and custom clearance company in Pakistan, currently holding the position as the country's largest.

Moreover, our extensive road transportation network spans across Pakistan and Afghanistan, providing our clients with easy access to heavy cranes, forklifts, low-bed trailers, and high-bed trucks.

In facilitating seamless movements, we offer air waybills for air deliveries to any global destination and ensure broad sea coverage through our vessels from Karachi ports, reaching 95% of the world's destinations by sea.

An invaluable benefit for our customers lies in our inclusive customs clearance and other meticulous details integrated into our freight forwarding services. Our one-window shipping solution ensures transparency throughout the cargo delivery process, whether from door to door or from vessel loading to arrival at the port of destination.

Based in Kabul, Afghanistan, we recently inaugurated a new branch in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, expanding our reach beyond offices in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, and Kabul.

Excitingly, we're launching our new sister company, Freeline Shipping. Stay tuned for more details as we unveil this latest addition to our growing portfolio.

 

What experience do you already have with the Digital Freight Alliance and SeaRates marketplace?


I participated in the Global Freight Summit held in November 2023 in Dubai, gaining valuable insights into the offerings and support provided by DF-Alliance for businesses. During the event, we explored the range of services, learned about membership opportunities, and were impressed by the benefits. Consequently, we decided to become Premium Members.

At this early stage of our engagement with the Alliance and the SeaRates marketplace, our company is keen on integrating various IT tools into our website. Witnessing these tools in action during real cases at the summit has heightened our interest. To kickstart this initiative, we have initiated a collaboration with the SeaRates team, and the partnership is already proving to be fruitful. We are eager to further explore and implement these tools to enhance our operations.
