Happy Holidays From Everyone At Tranztec

It’s finally that time of year again… chestnuts roasting over an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, you know how the song goes…

At Tranztec, we feel we have a lot to be grateful for and wanted to share some of the things in which we will be giving thanks for this holiday season.

We want to say thank you to our team. You truly are the foundation that holds us together and we could never express enough gratitude to how much we truly appreciate the work that each of you do at Tranztec. We are very proud of what we have accomplished in 2019 in both growing our products and customer base – we can’t wait until 2020.

We want to say thank you to our customers (both new and old). It is because of your faith and commitment in our products and services that we have been able to grow as a company and make our own aspirations become a reality. We are so excited that our offerings have been able to aid you in becoming the best your company can be. Every time we hear you tell us how much our platforms have helped; we feel truly blessed to have been a part of it.

We want to say thank you to our partners. You push us to continue to better ourselves and our platforms by deploying and battle-testing our technology across 100s of fleets across the nation.  In 2019, we have continued to expand upon our partnership pool by teaming up with even more leaders in the trucking technology space. At the same time, we continue to strengthen the bonds with our existing partners, and we believe this bond has been truly remarkable.

2019 really has been a special year for us at Tranztec, and we believe we have laid the building blocks for an incredible 2020.  To everyone, we mentioned above, we can’t wait to spend the new year with you and many more to come!

…So, I’m offering this simple phrase to kids from one to ninety-two, although it’s been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you!

Happy Holidays & A Happy New Year from everyone at Tranztec!

Surviving the Trucking Apocalypse of 2019

It seems like every day we are reading about another trucking company closing its doors after 50 years in the business. This year alone, we have witnessed LME, Starlite Trucking, and Falcon Transport (to name a few) all perish unexpectedly.  But why is this happening? In short… the costs of doing business have gone up substantially. 

We are now living in a world of increased wages to drivers, increased insurance rates, and more expensive equipment. To add accelerant to the fire, many state’s standards for emissions have become increasingly strict forcing trucking companies to buy newer equipment sooner than originally planned. 

In the past 3 years alone, the price of diesel fuel has gone up 50% costing trucking companies millions and cutting about $0.25 more per mile from their bottom line.

To top everything off, trucking companies are also forced to run on inflexible schedules due to the recent ELD mandate.

So how is a trucking company supposed to survive in a world of increased costs? In today’s market, if you want to endure, you have to run your trucking company more efficiently than ever before.

The companies that are able to increase margins by streamlining every process they have will thrive and the ones that do things the old way will surely meet an untimely demise.

Find solutions that allow you to visualize and analyze your entire operation and you will be able to quickly discover where you are losing out on profits.

Here are a few examples on how having proper visibility and data could help you:

  1. Say you have data on how much time one of your trucks is not being utilized. You can now use this truck to cover more loads instead of buying a 2nd truck.  This enables the best ROI on your purchased equipment and when scaled properly, this turns into major savings.
  2. Say you are able to visualize where all your trucks are in proximity to your next pick-up location. You will be able to quickly choose the right truck for the job saving in not only fuel costs, but internal costs in planning out the load.

In both examples. having that insight will save you money and make you more successful… remember data is king.

When we started building out own VIA transportation management platform, we set out with the goal of creating technology that would help trucking companies with cutting costs. The examples listed above are only a few of the robust features we built into our platform and we continue to add to our product every day. We have helped hundreds of companies (large and small) maximize profits and we would love to show you what we can do for you. If you’re worried about surviving the trucking apocalypse, reach out to us, perhaps we can help.
