the efi app
EFI Logistics were one of the first companies in the event logistics industry to design and create our own freight app. Over the past 10 years we have tweaked this to the point that it is now at the forefront of our customer service. This allows us to provide our customers with up to date information on not only the status of their shipment but also a photograph of the freight through each stage of its journey to showsite. We have been told time and time again by exhibitors how comforting it is to receive an image of their freight safely delivered to the stand while they are still travelling to the show. This system also allows us to deal with any issues with freight placement or queries on shipments before the customer even arrives to unpack, saving them precious time on site.
