“We’ve already seen an increase in volume. There is usually a lull in the ﬁrst quarter, but this year we have seen an increase in business.”
GDX Trucking, headquartered in Chula Vista, California specializes in various forms of freight movement, across the nation’s western 11 states. In 1998, Wolwowicz founded what is known today as GDX Trucking, with only one other employee and 2 trucks.
Before seeking an automated solution, GDX recorded trip information manually using a white board and ﬁling cabinet. As the company began to grow, so did their need for a solution that would keep pace with its newfound success. After reviewing several industry frontrunners, Wolwowicz felt that the choice was clear, and selected Prophesy tms software to run GDX going forward. However, in 2005, under pressure from a large customer, Wolwowicz switched his company to a competing solution. “Prophesy was the ﬁrst program I bought for my business,” said Wolwowicz. “After a little while I thought there was something else out there. I had no idea that other options aren’t as user friendly as the software that Prophesy offers.” He admits, “The other solution didn’t service our company the way Prophesy had, and we suffered as a result.” After only four months, GDX made the switch back to Prophesy DispatchSeries and hasn’t looked back.
Wolwowicz is thrilled that he has been able to implement all of GDX’s software additions, in-house. He said, “The software is pretty intuitive. I picked it up very quickly and had no problem installing it.”
The team at GDX was initially impressed with the ease of the software. “Prophesy made moving away from the dry erase boards and ﬁling cabinets stress-free,” Wolwowicz continued. “Prophesy Dispatch has saved the company labor, money, and time. I love this software!” The solutions have allowed GDX to consolidate all daily information and paperwork that had been disbursed over various outlets, into one easy-to-use program.
As GDX Tucking looks to the future, they expect major growth. “This year should be a strong year for GDX,” Wolwowicz shared. “We’ve already seen an increase in volume. There is usually a lull in the ﬁrst quarter, but this year we have seen an increase in business.” GDX Trucking looks forward to a bright future.Get Instant Access to the Full Case Study
