Ashvale Haulage goes paperless with PODfather

Ashvale Haulage, part of the M O’Brien plant hire group, is using PODFather to plan and manage the movement of its 70 tipper trucks servicing the construction industry.

Jack Dowd, Transport Manager at Ashvale Haulage said: “With PODFather we can look forward to running an efficient and paperless operation.

“To remain competitive in today’s infrastructure construction industry you need PODFather in place so that you can meet the project stipulation that all transport services be paperless.

“It’s a massive step forward for us, and our industry, and I see nothing but huge benefits by using PODFather to plan and manage our operation.”

Ashvale Haulage historically relied on a diary booking system to log customer work.

Jobs were called in and written down before they were passed to the planning team to organise routes and loads for the following day.

Now with PODFather, and the easy to use driver app in place, things are beginning to change.

Vehicle loads and movements can be planned using the system’s drag and drop interface and once completed jobs can be issued to drivers through the PODFather app which also allows drivers to collect and log all their vehicle check information prior to leaving the depot.

Dowd said: “Once our tippers are out on the road, we can use PODFather to keep track of who and what is moving where.  This real time visibility makes it so much easier when we need to move loads between vehicles or make sudden alterations to our schedules.

“We can make changes without having to spend hours on the phone or churning through piles of paper tickets.  It will speed up invoicing too as jobs are completed, and proof of delivery recorded instantly.”

Colin McCreadie, Managing Director at PODFather, said: “For so many construction hauliers the transition to a paperless operation seems like an insurmountable challenge but here at PODFather we are able to prove time and time again that it’s not.

“We offer an intuitive, easy to use solution to the age-old problem of relying on paper tickets to run a business.

“Operations such as Ashvale Haulage show that with the proper planning, and the right technology in place, you can modernise your working practices for the good of your business.”
