The summer saw award winning PR agency Pier announce that Fargo Systems, creators of the popular TOPS™ (Transport Operations & Processing Systems) software system, has undertaken a pioneering project with freight forwarders, Allport Cargo Services.
The project brings together Allport’s company resources and those of its subcontractors, to provide blue chip retail clients (including Monsoon, Matalan and New Look) with a seamless and transparent logistics service. Fargo’s mobile smart phone based system, TOPs…on the go, offered the ideal platform to provide a significantly improved and consistent delivery service to its clients.
Following successful negotiations with its subcontractors, Allport signed a three year contract with Fargo Systems and TOPS…on the go is now deployed across 140 vehicles enabling drivers to receive all job information and transmit PODs via their smart phone.
Allport’s Tony Belton concludes: ‘Our deployment of TOPS…on the go has been a ‘win-win’ from all perspectives. Clients are reporting improved delivery performance, the paperless administrative system has led to smarter working practices internally and we are delighted at the commitment our subcontractors have shown in investing in the technology and cultivating long term partnership relationships.’
