In the age of continually improving computer technology it has been hard for most organizations to stay on top of all these changes. Bandstra Transportation has excelled at implementing and persistently upgrading our technology. We prove that we are not like others in our industry that may shy away from embracing technology to improve operations.
Technology is a major player in our company; however, the technology is only as good as the people utilizing it. We pride ourselves in having experienced and intelligent management and crew who have the capacity to perform their jobs even without a computer station at hand. The technology simply allows us to further increase our efficiency and speed.
Among the traditional network applications, Bandstra Transportation has a complete imaging system. This system allows for signature capture and instant access to any documentation through our network. Many of our customers appreciate the ability for our office staff to view the bill of lading, proof of delivery, or any other documents and give them accurate information about that shipment. Our staff can manually email the signed documents to any of our customers, or automatically send them at the time of invoicing.
We have the ability to conduct all invoicing electronically, with a focus on being completely paperless on the invoicing side of our operations. We realize that every finance and operation department at each company may work slightly differently. That is why Bandstra Transportation’s IT department can help develop custom auto reporting at our customer’s request.
The technology extends from the office to the fleet with satellite tracking and communication devices. All of our equipment is outfitted with this technology and gives our drivers a direct line of communication to our dispatchers. Regardless if our trucks are in downtown Vancouver, the mountainous communities of Northern British Columbia, or off in a remote mine site, we can keep track of your freight and ensure that our drivers are always safe. Our management has the ability to monitor speeds, incidents, fuel economy and idle time of any of our highway equipment.
