Transport Exchange and Navman Team Up to Increase Return Loads and Boost Profits

The more than 6,000 members of the Transport Exchange Group’s freight platform can take advantage of the integrated capabilities of Navman Wireless telematics solutions. For workers in the road transport sector, the ability to use their vehicle tracking system to optimise performance, eliminate dead mileage (with return loads) and maximise capacity is a highly effective way to boost profitability.

Registered members of the Exchange can harness the capabilities of their vehicle tracking system to advertise capacity, bid for return loads and match the exact locations of vehicles. Every month more than 186,400 loads are posted, which represents a wealth of opportunities for couriers, hauliers and freight forwarders all over the country.

The integration of live vehicle tracking data into the Exchange also means that trading partners can maintain complete peace of mind and visibility of their deliveries or return loads, by being able to view their location and progress at any time while in transit.

While Navman Wireless was the first telematics integration into Transport Exchange Group’s innovative platform, it has been designed to support flawless amalgamation of other evolving technologies as well. The ability to make use of complementary tech solutions allows road transport operators to refine and improve their operations through the supply chain.

The European Marketing Manager of Navman Wireless, Peter Millichap, commented: “We’re constantly striving to improve the functionality of our vehicle tracking tools in order to assist our customers to overcome the challenges of their particular operation. It makes sense to integrate with other leading technology systems like TEG’s platform to enhance performance and deliver added value.”

The Managing Director of TEG, Lyall Cresswell, said: “Our platform was developed with integration of other freight systems in mind. We could see how much value our freight exchanges could add, and we’re constantly looking for collaborative opportunities to partner with logistics technology providers like Navman Wireless.

Hello, sweethearts!

Well, it appears I may have to eat a small serving of my words this week. Why am I embarrassed, you might ask? 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.

Hello, my dears!

I hope you are all having a great week, full of successful deliveries and profits!

Even if that isn't the case, I do believe after you've read today's post you might feel a little bit better about yourself. Because you see, this week, I've deliberately set out to create a fun and light-hearted post that I could enjoy along with my readers. We've been getting a little serious around here lately, and I miss the days of question-and-answer posts and fluffy subject matter. So I thought I'd jump in on that 'throwback' trend and go back to our more carefree days, even if only for a week!
