Anglia Freight said its partnership with software firm Qargo had helped it win a clutch of new contracts and increase operational efficiencies.

The Suffolk haulier had been supporting Qargo with developing its transport management software (TMS) for the UK pallet market and since going live it had processed more than 25,000 consignments and received positive feedback from customers, as well as realising efficiencies it thought would take months to materialise.

The haulier said that in particular, it was impressed with the software firm’s ability to adapt and support its ever-changing requirements.

Abby Holden, Anglia Freight compliance director, said: “After partnering with Qargo, we secured three major contracts that necessitated additional resources.

“In collaboration with Mark Hurren from Motus Truck and Van, Ipswich branch, we acquired six of the eight new vehicles, and as a board, we decided to adopt the joint livery.”

Anglia Freight’s IT director Pete Holden added that the TMS had helped it achieve a 6-8% reduction in total fleet mileage, equating to annual mileage savings of more than 200,000 miles.

Its cross dock scanning facility had also seen increased operational efficiencies of over 20 minutes per vehicle per day

“By far and away, the reason that we are so committed to this software and the staff that design, maintain and support it is because they react so fast to queries and recommendations that we have, and that is why we were so confident in the product that we became early adopters of the software,” explained Holden.
