Freeland Freight Services, like many hauliers, wanted a solution that would eliminate their paperwork and enhance their processes. They found what they needed with HaulTech.
Aberdeen-based Freelands is an award-winning general haulage firm. The company opened its doors in 1972 and is now celebrating its 50th year in business. Over the years the firm has successfully expanded its operations and has over 45 vehicles in the fleet. The company realised it had been working the same way since its inception, using carbon-copy ticket books to book jobs and issue tickets to drivers. Freeland Freight wanted to future-proof its operations by disposing of ticket books and streamlining its operations, so they contacted HaulTech to help them do just that.
HaulTech specialises in providing multi-award-winning Transport Management Software that helps transport offices to reduce duplication by 80%. The system does this by allowing users to enter information through a single point of data entry, for Freelands who had spent decades writing and duplicating work using carbon copy ticket books, this feature has completely enhanced the way they work. Freeland Freights Transport Manager, Phillip Sutherland spoke on the software’s streamlining capabilities, “The system has integrated into our business perfectly. We are getting the same work done in a fraction of the time and the best part of it all is we no longer have to get ticket books on back order.”
The Scottish haulage experts are also using automated rate tables through HaulTech’s renowned Transport Management System. Automated rate tables are pre-configured by the users with prices so when a customer requests a certain job, the price is automatically calculated thanks to the system. Not only does this save time but it eliminates human error, ensuring that every job is priced right and Freeland Freight gets the correct payment for their hard work.
Freelands have been searching for a Transport Management System with an automated rate table which adapts to the way they work but have never found it with another provider. The company charges customers hourly rates per vehicle size (transit through to artic) and have often found it difficult to calculate, however, working closely with HaulTech they found the resolution they wanted without compromise. Phillip commented, “When we went to the market for a TMS, only HaulTech gave us the confidence that local rate tables can be achievable with their system.”
“Local transport is a key part of our business so finding a TMS that would cope with the wide range of rate schedules we have in place for our customers was integral to our decision to proceed down the route of implementing the TMS. Using these automated rate tables is a real game-changer for us, the system has exceeded our expectations.”
HaulTech is excited to welcome Freeland Freight to the future of haulage and cannot wait to see where this technology journey takes them next.
