(businesspress24) - I come to inspire you this month. Have you ever dreamed of expanding your small haulage company into a substantial business, but are concerned that you won’t find a steady flow of work? Let the story of Raymond Brown Haulage Ltd wash away those worries and reignite your ambition. Find out how this company secured more transport contracts by joining Haulage Exchange’s network.

About Raymond Brown Haulage Ltd

Established in March 2013, Raymond Brown Haulage is a one-man operation founded by Nick Brown. The company is based in Kenilworth and specialises in the transportation of general freight across the UK. It prides itself on offering high quality services nationwide.

Six months after its creation, Nick decided that the best way to increase his transport contracts was by becoming a member of Haulage Exchange, the Transport Exchange Group’s leading freight platform.

Why the Company Became a Member of the Exchange

To ensure his business would be a successful one, Nick knew he needed the Exchange’s support to network with other companies and find more work opportunities. In short, the more transport contracts he could acquire, the more likely he was to establish long standing business relationships. A clever way to gain a good reputation, don’t you think?

Advantages of Using the Exchange Platform

•Acquire More Transport Contracts

When Nick started using Exchange’s platform, his company saw an increase in transport contracts. He estimates (and I’m not embellishing here!) that Raymond Brown Haulage Ltd gets 95% of its work from the Exchange.

•Access a Real-Time Platform Viewer

Thanks to the Exchange, the company can view the latest haulage work as it becomes available. The platform is an easy-to-use web based system which covers work throughout the country.

•Access the App

The Exchange Mobile App also allows Nick to promote both his availability and location to other members.

•Reduce Empty Runs

Before joining Haulage Exchange, Nick would complete a delivery, drop off the freight and then drive his empty van back. Thanks to the platform he can now disclose his location to other members. They can see if he is in their area and, if so, can offer him a new transportation job. This way, he can reduce the number of empty runs he has to do. Wherever he is, the Exchange lets him fill capacity.

•Get Regular Updates

Nick is constantly checking the Exchange, even on his days off. The easy-access online system lets him see which companies are posting work opportunities, so that he can plan his transport contracts in advance.

•Establish Relationships with Other Companies

Thanks to the Exchange, Raymond Brown Haulage Ltd has networked with more companies than Nick ever thought possible. It is through this platform that he has developed working relationships that have grown into long-standing business opportunities and trusted partnerships.

How to Become a Member

If you’ve been inspired (Yes, I’ve done my job right!), you’re probably wondering how to become a member. It’s easy – your company just needs to pass an accreditation process. The system will then continuously monitor your paperwork.
