Transporters.io takes the world by storm as the fastest growing transport management software since being recognised by 3 independent award bodies just less than 6 months after the official product launch
Transporters.io is a comprehensive end to end booking system for any type of transport company and uses highly secure cloud computing to manage everything from initial enquiries through to driver allocation, finance and payments.
Just a few months after the first Transporters.io system went live in April 2016, the company has been inundated with positive customer feedback and industry recognition leading to a total of 3 completely separate nominations from both Asian & Global organisations.
Co-founder & COO, Chris Armstrong explained that “Many companies and organisations never get this type of recognition, so we are extremely proud that Transporters.io has gained so much attention from influencers in the tech/startup industries and all within the first six months of operation. It is a real testament to the effort which the whole team has put into developing our product over the last 12 months. We are very excited about the next steps in our journey and extremely confident that we have the right team behind us to compete with the very best software solutions on the market.”
