Ecommerce Supply Chain Ltd join HaulTech to decrease their insurance premiums.
Southampton-based Ecommerce Supply Chain Ltd specialise in the unloading and delivery of freight containers from dockyards to fulfilment centres. The company pride themselves on providing great customer service for their warehousing and haulage operations. The business has seen very strong growth over the last 9 months during the pandemic. Not only has staffing increased, growing from a single member of staff to 20 in a short period of time but so has the number of vehicles on the road.
As for all fleet operators, a larger fleet results in greater road risk. This is especially true when your company continues to grow and is completing more work. As a result, the insurance premium for these collective vehicles will continue to rise – especially if one is ever involved in an incident. Some insurance providers are determined to ensure that hauliers install appropriate solutions into their vehicles to reduce the likelihood of a crash. HaulTech’s integrated vehicle CCTV and tracking systems have been a chosen solution to achieve just that for over 28 years.
HaulTech’s camera solutions can help drivers to capture incidents, mitigate false claims and even avoid accidents. All of this can ultimately result in a reduced insurance premium. Ecommerce Supply Chain Ltd have already benefitted from these solutions after joining HaulTech in August 2020. According to General Manager Doug Spring, HaulTech has saved the organisation “lots of money” as they would have been paying “thousands [of pounds] more for our insurance”.
Driver behaviour has also improved for Ecommerce. TrakMan, HaulTech’s online portal for accessing HD camera footage and accurate vehicle tracking data, provides driver behaviour scorecards to aid driver performance. The system produces informative scorecards based on how a vehicle is driven, factoring events such as harsh braking, turning and acceleration. The scorecards can then be used alongside vehicle footage to further educate drivers on how to operate more professionally. Doug went on to add that “our drivers have operated more professionally since the cameras and trackers have been installed.”
HaulTech and the easy-to-use TrakMan platform have a proud heritage providing hauliers with a distinctive service that simultaneously allows users to monitor and track drivers. This history and long-standing expertise were the deciding factors for Doug and the Ecommerce Supply Chain team. “TrakMan is the reason we joined HaulTech. We don’t know of any other provider who does tracking and vehicle CCTV in one system.
The system is unique, and it is simplifying things for us.”
HaulTech is excited to continue supporting Ecommerce Supply Chain Ltd with the TrakMan system and cannot wait to see what the system continues to do for them in the future.
