Southampton haulage business making a big impact

Bankside helping SJG double its volumes
A Southampton-based haulage company is defying the global challenges in the haulage sector and is seeing accelerated growth all thanks to its adoption of a software solution that offers industry standard EDI messaging.
SJG Haulage Ltd, a family-run company operating from Marchwood near to the Port of Southampton began working with Bankside Systems and their Intermodal Manager system and in just a year has seen an 233% increase in the containers it has handled. 
As the haulage industry pulls itself back from significant challenges presented by Brexit and Covid-19 while continuing to see HGV driver shortages affecting supply chains, SJG is welcoming the positive impact and rapid growth the communication upgrade has facilitated particularly around its solutions to the ongoing container storage issues currently being seen across the country.
By upgrading significantly from a paper-based process that is commonly used in the UK domestic haulage industry, Bankside’s sophisticated cloud-based communications system has enabled SJG to level-up their business and almost double their throughput from 2,100 containers per month in November 2020 to more than 7,000 one year later.
Natalie Noke, Director at SJG said:

“Seeing the industry we have worked in for decades facing huge challenges, we knew we needed to adapt to be part of the solution. Bringing in Bankside has been a gamechanger - they rescued us, and in just one week we were seeing the impact of their new system, which has supported our rapid growth and enabled us to compete successfully with our larger industry peers. We’re looking forward to using some of the more powerful features as our company continues to expand.”
Graeme Miller, Sales Director at Bankside, said:

“It has been wonderful seeing how our systems have been of such significant benefit to SJG. The impact of the pandemic and Brexit are being felt across the industry but working with SJG and witnessing their continued incredible growth in the face of such uncertainty has been a privilege.”
