Optimise end to end transport management solution for smart haulage management

The Story

Based out of Cambridgeshire, Williams Transport is an ever-expanding family-owned business with 90 employees, a very modern fleet of 65 vehicles, and an impressive 120 trailers.
Williams Transport specialises in transporting all manner of goods throughout the UK and Europe. A forward-looking attitude backed by over 43 years of experience in the road haulage business has helped Williams Transport to grow and ensure customer satisfaction on all their projects. Their mission is to grow while working closely with all their customers and go the extra mile to ensure all the customer requirements are met.

The Challenge

they require that businesses can learn to adapt and make changes to keep up with the times and are the ones that survive the test of time and stay ahead in the game.With fierce competition and the ever-adapting demands of the customers, switching to a comprehensive Transport Management System became necessary.

Road haulage is a low-margin industry and the need for tracking hidden costs and keeping overheads down became crucial. The people at the helm of Williams Transport realized this. Though proud of their business’s heritage, they were also eager to propel Williams Transport to the forefront of the Haulage industry.
Williams outlined the need for systems that would save time, save man-hours, and improve accuracy thus enabling easier identification and control of costs, improve efficiency, and reduce errors while going paperless and having a secure operations platform.

Williams Transport was especially keen on a web-based system that allowed secure access from anywhere and eliminated the need for on-premise server setups. Another concern Williams wanted to address was delivering better accountability and levels of service to their increasingly demanding customers. Deeper insights and greater levels of visibility and control over the entire operations were also a high priority.
