Today we’re very excited to congratulate our customer, ScuzzTrans, on winning the 2016 Queensland Supply Chain Management Award. This recognises ScuzzTrans’ outstanding success in managing a tightly integrated supply chain with a Teletrac Navman and iCOS LIVE solution.
As a small, family-run business specialising in the transport of shipping containers, ScuzzTrans services the Port of Brisbane with its fleet of late model trucks and trailers, as well as covering northern New South Wales. With the number of jobs for customers increasing, and all of them being time critical deliveries, minimising the costs associated with demurrage and storage fees is vital to ScuzzTrans’ business. This award recognises the important integrated approach ScuzzTrans took to solve this issue.
Cargo sitting on wharves can incur significant costs to customers, so ScuzzTrans required a transparent, reliable system that would provide full fleet and cargo visibility and enable the effective management of loading and offloading containers, as well as scheduling vehicle work flows.
ScuzzTrans implemented a joint track and trace management system using a combination of the Teletrac Navman Qube tracking device and an iCOS LIVE transport and logistics management system. GPS fleet tracking technology monitors where the vehicles are located and sends accurate satellite GPS coordinates to the iCOS LIVE transport management system, which reports a real-time location of all vehicles.
This prestigious Supply Chain Management Award makes us proud to celebrate how ScuzzTrans has simplified its supply chain management process and produced tangible business benefits.
