Road Haulage Operators Can Benefit From Smartphone Fleet Management System

Truckcom Offers Inclusive Package
Shipping News Feature

UK – Essex based Truckcom produces a single fleet management IT product based upon the use of smartphones which enables road haulage operators to study and control every facet of their business with the advantage that, with everything in one package, individual hauliers can use as little or as much of the system according to their requirements.

Truckcom started by offering products for installation within the customers own hardware but progressed to a cloud based option and now the system seems to offer the complete service for commercial vehicle fleet operators of every size. There are nine modules within the product which cover all the requirements of any haulage company looking to have better control over vehicles, drivers and their cargo plus statistical and accounting packages.

The modules include fleet and cargo tracking plus an operational efficiency facility which assists in avoiding tachometer infringements, delivery signatures via a smartphone screen and automatic copying of POD’s direct to consignors. There is the capability to input jobs automatically and for drivers to confirm roadworthiness daily and maintenance of condition records plus satellite navigation options.

Transport managers can automatically calculate job prices, using pence-per-mile, banded mileage tariffs, consignment quantity and weight, or post district zone tariffs and generate invoices and audit reports whilst having the possibility of publishing customised reports on performance both financial and operational.
