In 2011 Chris Holloway, a tanker driver from Manchester, UK was frantically searching for somewhere safe and secure to park. Turning down a wrong street could lead to catastrophic consequences, and parking in a lay-by with 20 tonnes of cryogenic liquid to keep him company over night made him feel a little weak at the knee’s!
Hence Motorwaybuddy system was born!
Designed and engineered by a group of logistics professionals and technical experts, Motorwaybuddy has been built to address the pain points faced by drivers and haulage companies alike experienced on a daily basis.Consisting of a complete guide to truck parking around the UK enabling the drivers to leave comments and the trucks stops to respond,
combined with a full compliance management system via our app services reporting directly to the haulage company web portal, the team have taken all the issues faced by the road haulage industry and put together a simple yet effective solution where all parties can derive benefit.
Motorway Buddy has now been in use for nearly a month now. It has had a 100% driver acceptance and has had positive impact on the business.
All my drivers do there daily checks and I receive an email straight away once submitted. This is great for compliance as I see instantly defect reports. Other added bonus with being a 24/7 operation I receive an email when trailer changes are being done and an email at the start and finish of there shift.
We also utilise the functionality of the app to send signed PODs back to the customer immediately. My driver simply puts all the load details and issues if any and takes a picture of the POD and it uploads direct and we the forward to the customer.
Simply most cost effective system, ease of use, cannot recommend this enough.
