As you look around your home or office … everything you see has traveled by truck at some point on its journey to you. It may have left the manufacturer in a truck on its way to a rail yard or ocean port. It may have left the destination rail yard or port on a truck on its way to a warehouse or retail storefront. Or it may have been delivered to your doorstep directly from a delivery truck. Think about how many trucks that must take, and how many drivers. How do the trucking companies keep track of which driver is in which truck, carrying which load? When a new order comes in, how do they know if they will have a truck and a driver available to take that load?

At UniGroup, we are focused on moving household goods. Our team builds the software to help our moving companies manage physical assets like trucks and trailers and their operations staff of drivers and other labor. We help them maintain their rates and availability, and track deposits and final payments from customers. This is newer software with a robust roadmap for enhancements and new feature development.
