In 2015, global software provider Causeway teamed up with the Transport Exchange Group to help members turn empty vehicle capacity into profit. Haulage and Courier Exchange members haven’t looked back since, taking advantage of live vehicle data using Causeway’s telematics software to promote empty vehicles and provide live load updates to trading partners.
The integration of Causeway’s advanced telematics solution with TEG’s freight trading platform allows registered operators to benefit from real-time locations and status information. This added visibility helps operators to fill available vehicle capacity, bid on jobs (including same day loads) and maximise return on assets.
Telematics-enabled couriers, hauliers, freight forwarders and logistics providers can advertise free capacity and generate load notifications based on accurate positioning data. Trading partners are able to use this added visibility to view the whereabouts and progress of their loads whilst in transit, to provide complete transparency and peace of mind of undertaken work – an aspect that is particularly important for same day loads.
Richard Brayshaw, Telematics Manager at Causeway commented: “This partnership will enable members of Haulage and Courier Exchange using our tracking technology to take advantage of an integrated supply chain solution. We can see the benefits it can deliver in terms of optimising fleet resources and boosting profitability by streamlining operational processes, increasing visibility of surplus capacity and improving business performance.”
Lyall Cresswell, Managing Director of Transport Exchange Group said: “We take a partnership approach with leading technology providers such as Causeway to integrate with complementary third-party systems and deliver added value. By accessing live operational data from vehicle tracking and transport management solutions, our members can gain operational insight that supports enhanced collaboration to maximise the efficiency and utilisation of their fleets.”

Well, if you were paying attention you'll know that last week I published a post about how I was glad owner driver jobs were becoming more popular in order to offer some healthy competition to Royal Mail. I was saying I think it's a lesson for the Post Office not to get smug and to actually update their prices.Read the full article
Hello, all! Steven here!
Yes, you're seeing it right – we're kicking things off with a post by yours truly again. Don't worry, though - I won't be taking this blog away from Auntie Gertie anytime soon. I couldn't possibly do that to her! This is her baby and she needs to be the one to write most of the stuff in it. So this is not a takeover, just a friendly guest post.Read the full article
