Cloud-based transport and warehouse management business CartonCloud has been recognised at the 2018 Queensland Telstra Business Awards, winning in the Small and Succeeding Category.
Helicopter technology provider HeliMods was the 2018 Telstra Queensland Business of the Year.
CartonCloud was originally developed to save a refrigerated transport and warehousing company from bankruptcy. After acquiring the company, Vincent Fletcher and Nic Comrie identified the key issues it faced were due to major revenue leakage from poor administration and operation costs.
As a trained software engineer, Vincent began developing a transport and warehouse management system. CartonCloud was designed specifically with automation in mind, leveraging the advantages of cloud computing for ease of access, and mobile phones for inexpensive electronic proof-of-deliveries capture.
CartonCloud is now in use by over 90 carriers and warehouses across Australia and New Zealand. CartonCloud processes over 200,000 jobs, and invoices over $10 million dollars of freight each month.
Telstra Group general counsel & group executive corporate affairs Carmel Mulhern said the winners of the 2018 Telstra Queensland Business Awards demonstrate excellence across six key judging criteria, underpinned by a commitment to innovation and technology.
“The winners of the 2018 Telstra Queensland Business Awards are shining examples of businesses doing great things in new and effective ways for their customers.
“They are genuine innovators, always on the lookout for ways to leverage technology to connect with customers, unlock new markets and take their business to the next level.
