The idea of CATHIS came about during the development of Five Star Transport Solutions’ in-house software system. Five Star Transport Solutions specialises in the transportation of heavy machinery throughout Sydney including cars, drag cars, access machinery, earth moving, construction equipment and containers throughout Australia.
The team from CATHIS developed a customised fleet transport management system linked with smart phones and GPS trackers to allow for a quicker and more efficient method of scheduling work to their truck drivers.
Five Star Transport Solutions started with 2 trucks back in 2009 and quickly grew to an operation of over 15 trucks and a large network of sub-contractors with the support of its in-house software system. It was during this growth phase and collaboration with Five Star Transport Solutions that the CATHIS team discovered a gap in the market where transport providers could not always service their customers, thus turning away work and potential customers.
This was primarily due to heavy vehicle transport providers not having sufficient trucks in areas where and when customers required it.
Currently in order to service customer requests, many transport providers are sub-contracting their work to fellow transport providers or owner truck drivers. This method is not ideal or feasible as there is often limited driver availability and the time spent searching for available drivers is wasted.
The Solution: CATHIS is a mobile and web application that provides customers who need heavy machinery, vehicles or other large items moved in real-time with a network of experienced, qualified and insured transport providers to fulfil any heavy transport need whenever and wherever required.
Booking transport for your cargo can be unreliable, risky and a time consuming process. Often you find yourself on hold waiting for transport companies to search for available trucks or have to deal with issues such as the mishandling/damaging of your cargo, drivers running late, uninsured drivers or simply not being able to pinpoint the location of your cargo.
CATHIS assists in removing the unnecessary difficulties associated with finding the right transport providers, booking a job and tracking your cargo as it provides a direct collaborative relationship between you and your drivers (no third parties).
This way you can be confident that you will have access to only experienced, qualified and fully insured drivers who can handle your cargo with care and get it to you on time! CATHIS sends your job to a network or drivers in real-time allowing immediate acceptance from drivers that match your requirements.
The GPS real-time tracking also enables you to directly view your drivers’ and cargo’s location turn by turn once it has commenced delivery until it’s completed, so you know it’s on time!
