Freight management system SmartFreight has streamlined shipping for landscaping company Green-tech.
Green-tech turned to SmartFreight, part of the WiseTech Global group, a leading developer and provider of software solutions to the logistics industry, to boost warehouse efficiency. The company also wanted to enhance the tracking facility for its huge range of landscaping materials and wholesale garden supplies used on high-profile sites across the UK.
As well as sourcing the best transport solution, SmartFreight’s technology provides financial reconciliation, consolidates consignments and gross profit calculations as well as enabling client and customer tracking. The synchronisation of data meant that Green-tech was able to remove manual intervention and increase productivity.
Lesley Spence, Communications Manager at Green-tech said: “We wanted to improve our communication with customers on deliveries and we wanted a simple solution that was easy to use.
“Integration with our back-office system has been our biggest hurdle. Some carriers are very ‘old school’ and don’t use the best solution for tracking and transferring data. We found that there were very few companies that offered tracking for all our courier providers, whereas SmartFreight was willing to integrate with them all.”
