At the beginning of 1998, Rachel started working for a UK based Freight Forwarder Network where she organised and attended meetings in USA, Brazil, Italy, Vietnam, UK, Thailand, Netherlands and Russia. Rachel enjoyed this experience and in 2000 launched Universal Freight Organisation. In 2008, she established the online directory Freightbook, in 2010 launched Project Cargo Network and in 2014, founded Cargo Connections. Due to the events of 2020 which led to a shift to digital ways of working and in a bid to serve this growing market, DigiFreight was launched.
Rachel is supported by a strong group of talented individuals drawn from a variety of transport and media backgrounds, all of whom want to contribute to the future success of our organisation.
