Stratum is our dedicated transport package we have installed in our office on which every load is entered. The driver, truck and trailer and / or container is assigned and this information is always available for queries or traceability requirements. Every job has a unique reference number which can be linked back to a POD docket. Invoices are also created from Stratum. This will help us to analyse individual jobs much easier and help us to cost and price work more accurately
As we endeavour to always have an up to date modern fleet on the road, we have invested heavily in new trucks this year all of which are EURO 6 engines. This is very important for us and environmentally focused customers. We are also endeavouring to reduce fuel usage with the driver training.
