H D Ricketts LTD was born in 1964. The company are one of the largest suppliers of sand and gravel in the West Midlands, providing these goods to well-renowned building merchants and supporting large scale construction projects such as the M6 toll road. Their fleet consists of 33 tippers and 10 curtain-sided trailers allowing them to meet customer demand for loose tipping, muck shifting and delivering loads across the West Midlands. To support its goal of becoming the largest supplier within the West Midlands, the company opted for HaulTech’s Transport Management System.
The Transport Management System provides positive change for hauliers and for H D Ricketts, it did just that. The company worked on paper and was spending so much time duplicating paperwork that it stood in the way of its growth spurt. The HaulTech Transport System eliminates administration duplication and allows staff to complete the same tasks in just 60% of the time. Ruth Peters, Director of H D Ricketts said “now we use HaulTech – it’s transforming our business”.
Four years on, the company are using the system to sustain and further the growth they have made during its time with HaulTech. The multi-award-winning software solution allows H D Ricketts to create bespoke reports so they can analyse the impacts of their growth, highlighting what is and isn’t working and see where they can cut costs. For many companies, these reports can take days or even weeks to create, however, the intuitive system creates these reports in seconds, allowing the company to make informed decisions swiftly.
HaulTech is incredibly excited to see what H D Ricketts will do next on their technology journey with the Transport Management System.
