M.D.F Truck Tyres See the Difference with CAM’s Fitter-Force

Great Yarmouth-based M.D.F Truck Tyres, an arm of M.D.F Transport, which specialises in transport for the wind energy, oil and gas industries and transporting abnormal loads is seeing the difference with CAM

Administration Significantly Reduced with CAM Systems

Jethro ‘J’ Poole is the manager and commercial tyre technician at M.D.F Truck Tyres. With 25 lorries and 70 trailers in the fleet, these vehicles are maintained by M.D.F Commercials, its sister commercial workshop. 

As well as all the inspection and tyre maintenance work for M.D.F Commercial’s fleet, M.D.F Truck Tyres undertakes fleet, commercial, plant, and industrial tyre work for other businesses across Norfolk and Suffolk. Most recently, new contracts have been secured with leading Norfolk firms Abbey Chemicals and Great Yarmouth Aggregates. ‘Jethro explains that these contracts have been won on reputation. 

It wasn’t always easy, however, for the fledgling business. Jethro explains, “Every time I sold a tyre, I’d have to manually enter the details into a giant spreadsheet. Manually itemising every delivery note. Every jobsheet for every job. And then our accountant would invoice off separately.”  

In 2022, M.D.F Truck Tyres invested in CAM’s fitter-force, which is integrated into e-jobsheet for digital jobcards to manage its tyre stock, inbound jobcards, record keeping, invoicing as well as other roles. 

For J, the transformation has been noticeable. He explains that he now sees the inventory right away. “I record and send the job straight off to my e-jobsheet tablet and I’m on the road to the breakdown,” he added. For the subsequent step, when Jethro is with the vehicle he can record the relevant info via the app. “CAM’s jobsheets are clearer and easier to read. Plus the photos give them confidence in the work and help them keep track.” 

CAM Helps M.D.F Truck Tyres Secure Additional Breakdown Work 

“Because I am connected via TiDaeX™ and using e-jobsheet, I’m now receiving new tyre breakdown service work daily. The jobs are coming from breakdown services such as Tyrenet,” explains Jethro, adding that CAM solutions has given the business a more professional edge.

“We’re now more efficient. In fact, we’re more self-sufficient. I’ve taken back some of the work from our accountant and I’m invoicing clients directly. But it’s this new professionalism coupled with our service that will allow us to scale the business and win us more business. We’re moving forward in the right direction and soon hope to take on a new mobile tyre technician and add another van,” Jethro concluded happily.
