Here you can manage your company profile. It has various sections that will control your account - notifications settings, payment terms for example. It also has sections that will be displayed in your directory entry.
If you need to change your address or company name for example, the change will NOT take effect until you have sent in proof of the change and it has been approved by Transport Exchange Group admin staff. This is to protect all other members
It is very important that this section is kept up-to-date. Your membership may be temporarily suspended if you have moved premises/home and you have not informed us and provided proof of address.

Last Name – The main contact’s surname

DO NOT POST LOADS WITH LOWER PAYMENT TERMS AND THEN CHANGE TO LONGER PAYMENT TERMS WHEN CONFIRMING THE BOOKING
WHEN YOU CONFIRM A BOOKING, YOU ARE LEGALLY BOUND BY THE PAYMENT TERMS. FAILURE TO ADHERE TO YOUR TERMS ALLOWS THE OTHER PARTY TO SEND YOU A LATE PAYMENT CHARGE AND SUBMIT A LATE PAYMENT COMPLAINT AGAINST YOU, WHICH MAY RESULT IN TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT EXCLUSION FROM THE EXCHANGE.

The notification radius in conjunction with your home location allows you to determine the area for which you will receive local load notifications.
Be realistic about how far you are prepared to a vehicle in order to pick up a load. Also consider the time it will take to get there
Minimum Vehicle Size for Notifications
The minimum vehicle size option allows you to select the smallest size vehicle you wish to receive load notifications for.
The largest vehicle in your fleet (company vehicles and your regular sub-contractor’s vehicle) will determine the maximum size vehicle that will be considered when the system matches loads to members
Enter the Email and or Phone number you want us to send notifications to (Please note that you will only see the options you currently have on the exchange i.e if you currently only receive email, that is the only option that will appear)
How load matching works
When a load has been posted the system will match the load with appropriate members using the following criteria:
If the pickup location falls within your home notification radius and you have the right size vehicle within your fleet or through one of your regular sub-contractors, you will be informed of the load by your preferred notification medium (SMS or email AND the notification bar)
If a tracked driver / regular subbie is within the stated distance (as defined by the poster of the load at the bottom of the post load form) then you will be informed of the load by your preferred notification medium (SMS or email AND the notification bar)
Notifications based on location of drivers / subbies will state which driver / subbie’s location has generated the match and the notification
