Realizing Major Efficiency and Productivity With TransPlus
Director of Safety
Autobahn has enjoyed impressive business growth over the past decade. The logistics team had been using a simple transport management system which required considerable manual input and email handling around payroll, transportation documentation scanning, file storage and manual data entry. It also lacked 3rd party integration for international fuel tax agreements (IFTA).
As the business grew the team felt they were failing to deliver their customer promise, and they lacked access to effective system support. They needed a user-friendly system capable of handling the needs of a large operator where everyone had easy access to critical documentation and information.
Autobahn’s Operations Manager had seen TransPlus used by another business and had been impressed. After arranging a demonstration of the system’s functionality for Autobahn, the team had an opportunity to evaluate its indexing and scanning capabilities and payroll automation. They were convinced that TransPlus was the right solution for the firm’s future transport management processes.
"With more data at our fingertips, we can make the necessary decisions in-house to ensure we continue to drive efficiency across our entire organization."
Autobahn has been a TransPlus customer since 2014 and continues to be impressed with the way the system integrates with other platforms including Lytx, Omnitracks, Thermal Management, Fuel Analysis, 24x7 Cargo and 24x dispatch. Supported with great literature and customer support TransPlus has delivered some impressive performance gains. These include a 30% reduction in manual processes, a 25% time saving for handling documentation and 15% productivity improvement.
