Some Australian road freight transport businesses own all of their own vehicles and employ their drivers, some mix their own fleet and drivers with subcontractors and their rigs for the provision of services, others rely on subcontractors exclusively. To whatever degree your transport business uses subcontractors, Freight2020 subcontractor management software provides for the management of subcontractors as an integral part of the business model, handling the presence of subcontractors in all operations, financials, human resources, and compliance areas for a complete picture, and including subcontractors in advanced functions such as Freight2020 Driver Mobility for real-time interaction with bookings.
