RH & AJ Bateman Ltd based in Somerset have discarded their paper-based processes in favour of a brand new transport management system.
This family ran organisation has over 17 years of experience as a bulk haulier. They specialise in supplying the agricultural sector meeting the needs of farmers across the country, distributing loads of cattle bedding sand to agricultural dust and base stone. Bateman’s also focus on supplying materials to building merchants and contractors, ranging from building sands to decorative gravels.
As a result of continued growth, their legacy paper-based processes were at capacity which in turn was putting excess pressure and strain onto their team and business.
As a specialist provider to the bulk haulage industry Russell knew that HaulTech’s Bulk Haulage Transport Management Software (TMS) was the obvious choice. He needed to find a solution that would help Bateman Aggregates to improve their productivity, reduce the amount of data duplication/repetition as a job transitions from receipt through to completion, maximise efficiency and effectiveness and create time to grow the business. HaulTech’s multi-award winning Transport Software did just that.
Russell Bateman, director at RH & AJ Bateman Ltd, stated that the team could “no longer handle the paper orders, paper proof of delivery documents and paper invoices being processed”. Russell went on to add that he is delighted to be partnering with HaulTech, ‘HaulTech’s ethos fitted our needs perfectly’.
HaulTech Director Craig Lamont, pictured below with Russell, stated that “Bateman’s are excellent at what they do and we are delighted to support them as they take their first steps on this technology journey. We look forward to hand-holding their transition from paper to a simple to use and cost-effective transport management system which, in turn, will help them to grow their business without the need for additional administrative headcount”.
