Construction Solutions

Helping you manage construction site logistics, vehicle safety compliance and material tracking

While doing it faster, cheaper & better than before
Earthworks Ticketing
Project Set Up

Set up your earthworks project in the PODFather backoffice system, configuring collection and tip site criteria, approved hauliers, material types, etc.

eTicketing for compliance

PODFather provides eTicketing systems for both use by site checkers and drivers depending on your requirements. Our system ensures duty of care regulations are enforced for material movements.

Close the loop

Conveyance ticket data is confirmed at both collection and delivery point, allowing you to close the loop on material movements with an automatic audit trail kept of all movements.

The PODFather has been a big part of our success at Victoria Station. It helps us manage our commercial situation, reconcile vehicle movements, and prove duty of care to the authorities.

Vehicle Checks
Gate staff checks

Equip your gate staff with a mobile solution that gives them a diary of planned vehicle arrivals, and capture walkround safety inspections based on the type of vehicle arriving.

FORS & CLOCS

PODFather can capture FORS and CLOCS based vehicle check forms and report on compliance of not just hauliers but specific vehicles against these standards.

Alerts

Alerting paths can be set in the sytem to report in real-time any infringements to safety standards or non-scheduled deliveries.

PODFather had the expertise to customise their solution to fit our requirements and integrate with our VMPS (Vehicle Movement Planning System).

Booking System
Vehicle bookings

Our multimodal Vehicle Booking and Recording System (VBRS) covers site logistics across road, rail and marine and drives a collaborative approach for sustainable transport management.

Haulier compliance portal

Collaborative Haulier Portal for sharing compliance information helps cut the cost of FORS/CLOCS/project safety compliance checking.

eTicketing for material movements

Legally compliant eTicketing for bulk materials movement helps ensure compliance to 'Duty of Care' Waste Carrier regulations and report against Construction Logistics Plan (CLP) and Excavated Materials Plan.

The PODFather is an effective solution that delivers improved productivity and reduction of waste.

Bulk Tracking
Geo-fencing

Site geofences can be set up so our in-cab handsets automatically know where they are against the site plan, and simplify the data input for operators.

Material tracking

The GPS and OS Grid Ref coordinates are logged for every material movement, allowing you to track the precise collection and delivery location of every single load. Reporting on contaminated material movements for soil sampling becomes easy.

Health and Safety

Capturing movement data in-cab reduces the need for site checkers around heavy plant machinery, improving the site safety.

PODFather has brought improvements in managing huge amounts of data and we have complete confidence in our ability to report as required to the regulators thanks to the exact movement capture the tracking system provides.

Reports
Dashboard Reporting

PODFather includes reporting dashboards that help report on material movements by material type and quantity, sites, and hauliers.

Live and Historical

Data is never deleted from PODFather, meaning you can produce reports from the first day you start using the system and build years worth of data to improve how your business operates.

PDF and Spreadsheets

If live dashboards aren't enough, most PODFather reports can also be exported into PDF and CSV formats to email or work your pivot table magic in your favourite spreadsheet tools.

We recommend the system to other construction contractors as it gives immediate visibility of material movement activity across a site, massively reduces the backoffice administration tasks of dealing with hand written tickets, and also helps ensure compliance with environmental and transport regulations.
