Walker Brothers Transport
Learn how MyTrucking streamlined Walker Brothers workflow allowing their focus to be the customer, not the paperwork.
Walker Brothers Transport
Walker Brothers store and transport bulk goods around the lower North Island and are specialists in the transportation of stock feed, aggregates and fertiliser. Well recognised all over Taranaki they are based New Plymouth, providing exceptional service to the regions farmers.
Walker Brothers run a modern fleet of tippers, silo and flat deck trucks and also have a commercial interest in livestock and milk transportation companies. All the vehicles have tablets installed to run MyTrucking and to provide driver communication. Their key business philosophy is to build and cultivate strong relationships with the customers, business partners and the communities they operate in.
How was the workflow previously managed?
Walker Brothers has developed over time from a combination of paper and spreadsheet based workflows with up to three people handling the information. Today the work order flows through to invoice with little handling, and just a final check off to confirm the details. This has enabled the admin team to spend more time in other facets of the business.
What issues needed to be resolved?
Walker Brothers tried a couple of systems to manage their fleet. The simplicity and effectiveness of MyTrucking avoided the complexity of the previous systems.

We’ve been running a fleet of trucks in Australia for many years and as a result, we’ve had a look at many different Scheduling Programs over the years, but nothing has been able to satisfy our particular business practices.
With the introduction of MyTrucking, our workplace systems have become more refined and generally more efficient. MyTrucking is a very simplified yet detailed and easy program to run and integrate into our daily scheduling and reporting functions. The reporting functions are really helpful to keep an eye on things, and Sam is very open to new suggestions to help improve efficiency.Jeremy Pittman
