Glasgow-based logistics company Rhino Express has used a transport management system from Mandata to optimise its operations since starting during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rhino offering includes warehousing, white glove goods delivery, container logistics, abnormal loads and courier services, including time-critical delivery. the company works across Scotland and the wider UK. It currently has 13 vehicles in its fleet, a mixture of trucks and vans, and also uses a sub-contractor.

The Mandata Go platform is said to be designed for start-up to small and medium-sized hauliers looking to simplify everything from customer ordering and job planning to real-time job execution, proof of delivery and invoicing.

Rhino office manager John Alexander said: “Mandata Go gives us great visibility across our organisation. The office can book in jobs which get fed through to the drivers, who in turn can see all the details via the mobile app. Drivers can also update a job status and upload photos for proof of delivery. It is really an end to end solution for us, from a job coming in right through to invoicing on completion. The support from Mandata has also been excellent, in particular the online help pages, which answered a lot of our questions.”

Rhino uses Mandata Go to book in and price jobs, with flexibility to do this manually or automatically. Mandata Go can also allocate jobs to a sub-contractor, record the price they charge and reconcile their costs against invoices. The system integrates with Rhino Express’ accounts software and enables them to send customers invoices and proof of delivery.

Mandata’s package for Rhino also includes vehicle checking, tracking and the Manifests and Navigation apps for drivers, providing satnav with optimised truck routing, estimated time of arrival notifications and electronic proof of delivery.
