East Yorkshire bulk haulier BI Halder has invested in HaulTech’s Transport Management System to support its growth in the provision of haulage service to the agricultural industry.
With a modern fleet of 28 vehicles BI Halder provide nationwide haulage and distribution for bulk and palletised goods. Director of BI Halder Louise Halder says “Our business reached a point where administration and paperwork presented us with a challenge – did we continue on, bring additional headcount into the transport admin team or invest in new tech to support that growth? The decision was an easy one – it was tech. Tech allowed us to streamline and standardise our processes whilst creating time for our team to focus on growth. We were a little concerned about how we’d transition from our legacy paper-based system to technology but we needn’t have worried.”
“We researched the market and found the HaulTech system fitted perfectly with the way our bulk haulage operation ran” continues Halder. “The system was easy to use and the HaulTech team hand-held us through the implementation process so well. We were up, running and seeing huge improvement within days”.
HaulTech‘s Transport Management System works seamlessly alongside Teletrac Navman’s Director tracking, messaging and satnav system that Halder have fitted to their vehicles. The two systems combined allows Halder’s to book, schedule, deliver and send/receive e-PODs before passing job and financial data to various accounts packages (such as Sage Accounts) ready for invoicing.
Louise added “Today our business is unrecogniseable from what it was. We’ve seen annual turnover increase by almost 50% with the same level of admin resource we had before implementing the TMS. The standardisation of our work, availability of up to the minute data for us and our customers, aligned with our availability to report on key metrics has allowed us to take huge steps forward. It’s all thanks to the HaulTech TMS. The journey has been so transformational for our business and we’d recommend every bulk haulier to take a look”.
HaulTech director Craig Lamont said “We’re proud to have Louise and the team at BI Halder onboard. Our TMS is a perfect fit for the bulk haulier and with the added benefit of the integration between it and Teletrac Navman’s Director tracking, messaging and integrated satellite navigation system makes the solution even stronger”.
