Ever heard of a TMS that makes you money AND saves you time? You should hear from Carlos Waldo.
For Carlos Waldo, the greatest obstacle standing in the way of Joined as One’s growth was time. Time to find the right loads. Time to reconcile driver payments. Time to navigate all the manual tasks required to run a busy truckload carrier operation. ” Enter Axele.
“Not only can I take on more loads, I can manage the business better.”
– Carlos Waldo, Joined as One
When owner Carlos Waldo added up how much time it was taking for him and his daughter to log loads correctly and manage driver deductions and pay in QuickBooks, he knew there had to be a better way.
Manual Work Was Wasting Time and Killing Profit
“If you had to put every load and all the required documents into your financials, it would take 15-20 minutes to put each load in correctly. Then, at the end of the week, if you do a 1099 or a pay supplement for a driver, you have to remember all the deductions,” Waldo said. “That was taking us six hours for five drivers.”
With Axele, it’s down to two. Plus, Axele helps Waldo keep track of how much revenue he’s created within a given week, and eliminates the need to dog drivers about their loads. “I had drivers who would hand me a spiral notebook when I’d ask what they did for the week,” Waldo said. “With Axele, I can see what the driver has done, what he’s averaged, what he’s lost, and what he’s gained. If your deadhead is getting too high, it tells you.”
Challenge: Customer Calls
Customer calls about load status seem inevitable, but with Axele, they are drastically reduced. “I used to get calls two to three times per day per customer,” Waldo said.
“Now, when I send them the Axele link, they only call when the load is picked up to verify count or seal number.”
“The Axele TMS is so accurate – it saves me a ton of aggravation.”
