Cloud-based enterprise-grade transport management system (TMS) TransVirtual has announced its transport network volumes have doubled over the last 12 months, powered by Australia’s rapid uptake of eCommerce in 2020, which saw economy-wide online sales grow by 57 per cent year-on-year.
The well-established transport management system (TMS) integrates with leading national carriers such as DHL, Mainfreight, Border Express and Aramex and takes the hard work out of running a profitable transport and delivery company, at a time when eCommerce’s rising popularity shows no sign of slowing down.
Founded in 2014 by Newcastle entrepreneur, Troy Searle, TransVirtual is the next iteration of a company Searle launched in 2010 after ten years working in his family’s transport business, where he witnessed first-hand the challenges, pain points and inefficiencies that plagued the industry.
TransVirtual’s software equips companies to schedule deliveries through auto allocation and optimise each driver’s daily route, provides real-time vehicle tracking and routing, produces instant paperless proof of delivery status via its mobile app and offers fleet maintenance and invoicing capabilities.
Transvirtual has customers across industries including logistics, courier services, delivery companies, transport, warehouse, distribution and freight brokerages. The company’s product is also suitable for companies undertaking any form of dispatch out of their premises or warehouses.
Founder and CTO of TransVirtual, Troy Searle, said: “As a result of 2020’s government enforced lockdowns across the country, Australia’s courier, express and parcel (CEP) market is now expected to grow to more than one billion parcels a year by the end of 2021. This exponential growth has not only seen sales and enquiries for our TMS rise, but it also marks the notable demand these businesses have for products that solve the biggest challenges for any transport business right now: data migration, mobility and tracking.
“Companies in the transport and delivery space want full control over their destiny, they want to control their processes, data flows and IT costs, with an overarching goal of enhancing their workflow and raising their profits. With TransVirtual, companies can dictate, design and configure an incredible amount of data and process flow, without getting product developers involved.
“While there are a lot of exciting innovation and development conversations going on in the transport and delivery space, it’s still very early days in terms of data flow, even for the top end of town, meaning there is ample opportunity for us to work alongside companies to markedly enhance this process,” Searle concluded.
Just Freight said that in order to meet evolving customer expectations, TransVirtual has changed the way they operate their business: “It has given us the ability to become completely transparent with all our customers and helped us grow our business and increase revenue over a short period of time.”
Transvirtual creates the link between every customer, agent, sender, receiver, depot, driver, administrator and manager to enable them to access the information they need, providing complete visibility through the entire network. TransVirtual’s flexible, enterprise-grade software is priced on a pay per consignment model, making it affordable for businesses of all sizes.
Western Parcel Express (WPE) said: “TransVirtual has easily accommodated the demands of our entire network and even facilitated opportunities to connect with like-minded companies across the state.”
First Choice Couriers said: “We at First Choice Couriers would highly recommend TransVirtual if you are looking for a user-friendly, scalable, end-to-end solution as your transport management system.”
