TRIAL: Vehotrans make offering

A Wales-based freight and transport exchange are offering a free six-month trial to new customers.

Vehotrans, who have already gained nearly 500 members, are giving customers the chance to test out their ‘one-stop shop for couriers, hauliers and freight forwarders’.

The company have already gained more than 1,400 followers on Twitter, with loads posted automatically on site.

Carl Davies, Marketing Manager at Vehotrans, said: “There are other exchanges but they all offer different things.

“We wanted to build a site that offered everything under one roof at a very competitive price; why spend on different sites when you can just spend on one?

“We wanted to build a flexible exchange where our members can tell us what the industry needs; we will adapt to what is needed to make it work.”

Vehotrans is built around smartphone applications, which can be used with Apple, Android and Blackberry phones, complete with live mapping for loads and driver availability.

“There was a gap in the market for a competitive exchange site that benefits both our customers and the industry,” added Mr Davies.

“We identified that having an exchange with no hidden extras, free set-up, and free unlimited apps would benefit the industry.

“Vehotrans has been built so that it works properly on small devices such as smart phones and tablets, as well as PCs.

“The drivers on the move can upload and post statuses, which cut down on traffic management time; the benefit is it gives them more time to do other things.

“Gone are the days of having to phone your drivers for ETAs, collection times or updates on delays.

“The app can post live availability at a touch of a button.”
