Freeway links with TTX’s TMS

London, 10 May 2016 – Oldham-based warehouse and distribution company, TT Express (TTX), has implemented a fully integrated solution that links the company’s transport management system, Mandata TMS, with its fleet maintenance and workshop management system, Freeway. Not only does the solution provide full visibility into the status of each vehicle in the fleet, but it has also opened up a new revenue stream by enabling TTX to accept third party vehicles into its workshop for servicing and maintenance.

The Freeway-Mandata TMS link gives TTX much greater visibility into the availability of its resources. Freeway’s “Traffic Light System” clearly indicates the operational status of every vehicle, and the system has enabled TTX to improve the overall efficiency and availability of its fleet.

“What really makes Freeway unique is its flexibility and its ability to integrate with Manpack3, our TMS solution,” said Vlad Costache, General Manager, TTX. “We now have complete visibility of our entire fleet maintenance schedule from within our TMS, and, thanks to the easy to follow Traffic Light System, our Traffic Planners now know which vehicles and trailers are available to use, which are due for servicing and when. This allows them to plan ahead and ensure that vehicles/trailers are available in our Workshop in time for the scheduled services. Our Operator’s Licence is our most valuable asset, and the Freeway system helps us protect it and fulfil all our fleet maintenance obligations as a Transport Operator.

“It has also eliminated all communication barriers between the Traffic Operations department and the Workshop. For instance, instead of relying on Workshop staff to send email reminders about when services are due, Freeway automatically updates vehicle statuses in our TMS system and offers our Traffic Planners full visibility.”

In addition to this, purchasing the Freeway system enabled TTX to take advantage of another revenue stream that was previously impractical. The new system automatically generates an invoice from the job cards and updates the accounting software, all at the click of a button. This means that TTX can accept third party vehicles into its workshop for servicing, maintenance and MOT testing, with vehicle history, workshop jobs and costing charged directly to the customer’s account.

“Freeway has fully transformed the way we operate and maintain our fleet, and we are looking forward to expanding our commercial vehicle servicing and repair side of the business,” added Costache.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
