ANCORA Logistics successfully launch their business using HaulTech’s Transport Management System.
ANCORA Logistics recently launched their operations in March 2021 and were founded by father and son duo, Ian and Brad Hope. The duo decided to build ANCORA Logistics after finding success in its sister company ANCORA Recruitment, who matched qualified drivers to the relevant transport company. They realised that the sector was crying out for more vehicles on the road and wanted to fill the gap. The Bristol-based company specialise in general haulage and pallet collection across the UK. Operations Manager, Brad Hope commented on ANCORA’s launch, “we have already established some good relationships and look to expand as those relationships grow.”
When opening the business, Brad wanted to make sure ANCORA’s operations were future-proofed with a technology solution. He said, “we are in the 21st century and technology is wonderful, it’s better to start early than play catch-up”. Brad acknowledged that many hauliers drown in paperwork and he wanted ANCORA logistics to be ahead of the curve. The Operations Manager found a solution in HaulTech’s Transport Management System (TMS) which gives hauliers the tools they need to control and enhance their administration process.
HaulTech’s transport software system will allow ANCORA to maximise the efficiency of their operations immediately, rather than allowing their processes to become outdated. Many haulage companies will wait until they are crumbling under the pressure of having too much paperwork before turning to a technology solution. The TMS ordinarily reduces administration processes by up to 80%, allowing existing haulage companies to increase their efficiency. However, for ANCORA the software solution will facilitate their growth and mitigate typical transport administration issues.
ANCORA are already realising the benefits of HaulTech’s multi-award-winning software solution which automatically creates and sends invoices within seconds. This feature alleviates the need for duplication of data. The transport system also synchronises with all major accounting platforms including Quickbooks, Sage and Xero, which streamlines the invoicing process. Brad commented, “HaulTech helps us to invoice as quickly and aggressively as possible”.
HaulTech are excited to be supporting ANCORA with the Transport Management System and look forward to seeing the opportunities it provides for the newly formed business.
