HaulTech’s e-POD safely provides drivers with the knowledge they need to successfully complete a job efficiently.
Traditional transport offices usually pass ad-hoc work information from the office to their driver via a phone call, a text message, or an email. These processes can often be inefficient, wasteful, and even unsafe or potentially illegal. Drivers using their phones illegally on the road can be fined up to £200 and receive 6 points on their license, they are also 4 times more likely to be in a road incident than a safe driver. THINK reports that driver reaction times are 2 times slower if they text and drive than if they drink drive, and this increases to 3 times if they use a handheld phone.
The HaulTech in-cab app eliminates the need for drivers to call, text or email whilst behind the wheel by providing real-time manifest updates. With the direct connection into HaulTech’s Transport Management Software, each additional job that is added to the appropriate manifest will update automatically without the need for extra input from office staff or driver.
The details of each delivery or collection is displayed within each job as a driver completes it. This includes basic information including address, consignee name and contact information and goods description. The app also features any special requirements associated with a job. This may include indicating any hazardous materials, health and safety rules for a specific site or even a code to enter a gated site. This detailed guidance improves operational output by allowing a driver to complete their work quicker, ultimately allowing for them to undertake more work per day and improve bottom-line figures.
