At Mawson, we offer EDI for customer interface through IBM/AS400, p.c.'s. or FAX.

To assure the best quality control for our customers' cargo and on time delivery, we operate under Fleet Manager concept. Our Fleet Manager is trained to coordinate all operational procedures, safety, and maintenance criteria. The Fleet manager is directly responsible for our drivers' overall performance, seeing to it through satellite tracking, drivers making their required check-in calls, monitoring the use of their fuel cards at a network of designated fuel stops, and supplying drivers with his/her routing instructions.
