Katem Logistics is a family-run haulage company based in Bowburn Co Durham making deliveries across the UK and Europe. Katem is also a member of the Palletforce pallet network providing next-day pallet delivery services.
Cheryl Marley explains how the move away from a paper-based system where there was no proper paper trail or close off, to a Mandata transport management system is enabling them to manage their 50 strong fleet. The introduction of a Manifest app is now providing better visibility and real-time electronic proof of delivery.
Technology is very important to our company. The world of logistics is changing very quickly and customers now need real-time reporting and updates on the progress of their deliveries ….. without continually updating our systems we wouldn’t be able to give the required information. In doing this it keeps us in line or ahead of our competitors thus adding value to our service.
