Strengthen Client relationships with HaulSist™

Problem: Lloyd Fraser received a client driven request for all data collected from their Milk vehicles. The client wished to have a series of data points included in their report. Lloyd Fraser didn’t have a full TMS system developed which stored information about the milk vehicles in a way to provide data externally to a client, as requested.

Solution: Les Corbett, Systems Manager at Lloyd Fraser Group met with the RentUrApp™ team who took all the business requirements. RentUrApp™ built and implemented a bespoke and tailored HaulSist™ system to be used in the raw milk collection centre.

Outcome: Lloyd Fraser clients now have access to all information they request, strengthening the Lloyd Fraser/Client business relationships further. The rollout of the initial system was achieved in record time. All depots had systems up and running in a matter of weeks.


About Company

Lloyd Fraser is one of the UK’s largest privately-owned third-party logistics companies, established over 30 years ago as a family-style business.

Overview

Lloyd Fraser received a client driven request for all data collected from their Milk vehicles. The client wished to have a series of data points included in their report. Such as what milk has been collected from their farms, the health of the milk and when it has been delivered to the end point to be transmitted in XML format to them, whilst adhering to strict data protection rules.

On the milk side of the business, Lloyd Fraser didn’t have a full TMS system developed which stored information about the milk vehicles in a way to provide data externally to a client, as requested. Group Systems Manager, Les Corbett met the RentUrApp™ team who took the requirement and quickly grasped the solution required.

I would highly recommend RentUrApp™. The team has the ability to look at the issue in hand and adapt to get a timely result which is second to none.

Approach

Les Corbett, Systems Manager at Lloyd Fraser Group met with the RentUrApp™ team who took all the business requirements. RentUrApp™ then built and implemented a bespoke and tailored HaulSist™ system to be used in the raw milk collection centre. Lloyd Fraser utilises Haulsist™ as their major system storing all data with Haulsistsync™ giving clients access to data on what milk has been collected from their farms, the health of the milk and when it has been delivered to its end destination.

Business Benefits

The multiple business benefits to Lloyd Fraser which have been uncovered through using their bespoke HaulSist™ RentUrApp Solution:

  • The system stores all possible known data, organising a data split based on organisation ensuring all data files are kept 100% accurate and clean.
  • Clients receive only their own data adhering strictly to client confidentiality.
  • Haulsist™ stores and manages the full audit trail of the milk and the whole lifecycle of its journey from collection to delivery with multiple required data points, such as the health of the milk included.
  • The system collects vehicle cleanliness data in the file so it can be reviewed at any time. It also stores data on when a vehicle has been cleaned and when has collected milk.
  • This information is paramount to retaining the health and safety cleanliness standards and adhering to food standards, which is absolutely vital in Lloyd Fraser’s industry.
