Little Rock based third-party logistics company, Priority1, has been in growth mode for years. As a company that continues to see an average growth of 37% annually, it can be difficult to keep up with expansion from an operational standpoint, especially with growth coming from so many parts of their business including truckload, less-than-truckload, and warehousing.
Giltner, Inc., a transportation company based in Jerome, Idaho, has been in business as a carrier for more than 30 years. As recently as 2015, Giltner's brokerage had some 35 offices. Today that number is 50. "We had paper coming in from all over the place and emails coming in from all over the place. With HubTran we were able to grow like crazy and still reduce the number of people," said Michelle Baughman, Vice President, Administration, for Giltner.
Circle 8 Logistics didn't know they had a problem until they found the solution. The problem they didn't recognize was a manual payables process. Not long ago, Circle 8 was paying 300 invoices a day in a cumbersome process that cost man-hours and led to troublesome errors and delays.
When David Broering, Senior Vice-President at NFI, faced the kind of good problem a growing business can have, he chose HubTran to deliver the solution. "We’ve created a place for expansion in volume without having to add headcount," he said of the outcome.
