Suttons Group maintains a fresh approach to each job and utilises a range of software and business systems to make sure that we carry out each task safely, efficiently and on time.
This approach also allows us to have full control over the location of our fleet so that we can keep our clients up to date with the progress of their goods.
The team at Suttons Group use the Manpack system throughout every job and its key events. It is here where all jobs are created, planned and invoiced. Our transport management system allows us to work more efficiently thanks to its EDI. The EDI is essentially an interface between customer systems and our transport management system which enables jobs to be created automatically, with little to no human interaction.
Thanks to our telematics system we can track and trace any of our vehicles to see where they are or where they have been. The telematics system automatically updates our transport management system with key information such as arrival and departure times based on geofences plus ETA boards and notifications. On top of this, Suttons Group can review key driver performance reports based on safety and fuel efficiency. This allows us to plan further training for our tanker drivers.
