- Brian Hitchcock, Founder
M.B.H. Trucking, located in Webberville, MI, was founded in June of 1998 by Brian Hitchcock. In January of 1999, Brian officially launched M.B.H. Trucking, LLC. When M.B.H. Trucking opened its doors, the company consisted of only two trucks, four tankers, and four drivers; in the ﬁrst year Brian purchased one truck each quarter in order to effectively manage the company’s growth. M.B.H. has grown exponentially since then. Currently, the company is the largest it has ever been with 24 trucks, 39 trailers, and a total of 28 employees.
Like other trucking companies, M.B.H. Trucking had used many methods such as paper and pen, whiteboards, and manual spreadsheets for handling their dispatch and accounting functions before deciding to investigate software options. The M.B.H. team had also begun using Quickbooks® accounting software just before they began their search for a dispatching solution. Brian explained, “Our bookkeeper suggested that we use QuickBooks because it is such an intuitive program and we grew to love it. I wanted to make sure that any dispatch software options we considered integrated with QuickBooks and we noticed right away that Prophesy integrated the best.”
After installing ProphesySeries Dispatch, the initial results were better than Brian had expected. “Once the staff at M.B.H. was comfortable with the new software, everything else fell right into place.” Brian continued to explain that their software investment in ProphesySeries Dispatch was tremendously worthwhile, as is evident by M.B.H.’s notable 25% increase in revenue since beginning to use ProphesySeries Dispatch.
When asked about the future of M.B.H. Trucking, LLC, Brian said, “The future holds only positive growth for M.B.H. Trucking. We hope to increase employees and services as we move forward.
