Melbourne-based transport and field services specialist Smart Trans has used this week’s ITC World Congress to announce it has recently signed a contract to manage the assets and customer delivery requirements of one of the city’s leading landscape and gardening suppliers.

Fulton/A-Grade, which operates 50 vehicles across five depots in the metropolitan region carrying out 300- 500 deliveries per day, has engaged Smart Trans to provide optimisation, routing and scheduling solutions, as well as mobility applications for use with smartphones. Following a recent change of ownership, it identified an urgent need to review, optimise and monitor its deliveries. Fulton/A-Grade director Michael Naylor said the first order of business under the Smart Trans contract would be to better manage the company’s assets and improve its service levels.

“Smart Trans is able to bring that capability to bear in the short timeframe we require.”

According to Grant Boydell, Smart Trans’ strategic relationship manager, Fulton/A-Grade would see immediate benefits for its vehicle management, customer service and business processes.

“Our initial contract is over three years, and is worth around $A1 million, and our system is set to up up and running with Fulton/A-Grade by January next year.”
