How trucking companies can leverage tech to stay organized
Technology has become a tool to rely on for millions across the globe, as it has increasingly ingrained itself into our daily lives.
One aspect that it has greatly affected has been organization, as folks can create calendars, save files, and set alarms simply by using their smartphones.
Staying organized has never been easier and more accessible. For businesses though, especially trucking companies, organizing every aspect of their daily duties can be difficult.
In addition to regular business management like payroll and other daily duties, trucking companies also have to keep track of loads, drivers, trucks, and a multitude of other assets on the road.
While some believe that keeping ledgers and physical reports may be antiquated, they can still work efficiently for many businesses. Nonetheless, they also may not be the most efficient tool for organizing the plethora of aspects necessary to run an entire organization.
That’s where management software comes in to play. Such software allows companies to have all their documents, records, and necessary files in one, secure place.
And guess what! UTECH has such software available!
UTECH TMS is an industry-leading transportation management software that caters to the needs of the trucking industry and it incorporates a collection of highly effective tools to organize transportation companies.
Or, to put it simply, it’s a software that helps you organize every aspect of your trucking business in one, secure place.
Running a trucking operation with any sized fleet can be tiresome for many owners and managers, especially when you consider that they have to keep up with the needs of dispatchers, drivers, brokers, in addition to a ton of other people.
With our software, you can efficiently manage every aspect of your company such as drivers, tractors, trailers, customers, vendors, brokers, users, and so much more.
Additionally, TMS allows shot-callers to keep track of their company’s safety efforts. By tracking assets like drivers, equipment, and any claims that may surface, your company can always be in-the-know when it comes to safety.
The fact of the matter is, safety is the single most crucial aspect in trucking right now. For example, the ELD Mandate was passed with safety as one of its biggest concerns and the FMCSA continuously rolls out efforts such as the Crash Preventability Program and CSA scores to make sure drivers are safe on the road.
Not to mention that a bad CSA score can basically tank your business at any time. With a bad score, it becomes increasingly difficult for brokers and other companies to work with you. Therefore, by keeping tabs on every safety aspect in your company using a TMS system, your company can make positive leaps forward.
In addition to safety, the system’s load management integration is also an enormous boost for companies that manage a sizeable collection of trucks and drivers. With the ability to keep track of and effectively manage full and partial loads, you can merge multiple loads and payments with ease.
Essentially, UTECH TMS can help trucking companies continue to thrive as the future becomes more dependent on technology.
