McAuley’s Transport Ltd –  Masterton NZ

 

McAuley’s Transport was established in 1964 and is located in Masterton. A constant focus on providing a diverse range of professional, cost effective transport solutions, has formed the foundations of creating a nationally recognised transport company with exceptional service at its core.

This focus on service has seen a wide range of both transportation services and industry types depend on McAuley’s as their freight provider. The successfully run family business was purchased by TIL in 2013, offering Colin and Diane McAuley the succession planning they, and TIL was another successful provincial-based transport business to add to the portfolio.  

With a vision to be “Leading Transport Specialists” by offering a diverse range of professional cost-effective transport solutions, they have recently built and relocated to a state of the art transport depot, and have 74 vehicles in their fleet.

MyTrucking has added another string to their bow, assisting the team with dispatching, reporting on historical jobs and assurance that everything is being invoiced on time. “It’s the little things that can stump you when you grow, and MyTrucking has enabled us to keep on top of all of these.”

 

How was the workflow previously managed?

“Huge spreadsheets, which we’d become accustomed to. Phone and text messages to drivers. Manual paper of drivers returning paperwork.”  

 

What issues needed to be resolved?

“More responsive return of data from drivers, assurance that everything was invoiced, and a more fluid process for getting job information to drivers.”
