SFL Network A community of high-performance logistics businesses that believe in connectivity improving quality.

SFL is excited to announce that development of a freight network is underway. SFL Network will be a portal for our technology partners and other Cargowise users to do business with each other via their common denominator, CargoWise One.

 


SFL's proprietary adaptor technology will seamlessly connect members’ CargoWise One systems to each other. The resulting virtual network will allow members to achieve unparalleled efficiency and transparency, leading to more cost-effective operations, better customer service and increased profitability.

Non-CargoWise users may still join the network via SFL’s adapter technology.
