How we work on your behalf

Cascade processes 10,000 notifications each month on behalf of Structure Owning Authorities.

 

Structural asset protection and responsible management

All Underbridges & Overbridges within your area are responsibly managed and safeguarded using Cascade's flagship Abnormal Loads management and structure checking software solution.

Accurate structure checks based on actual vehicle axle weights and spacings

Because structure checks are made using axle weight and not gross vehicle weight, unnecessary re-routes can be avoided. Less fuel consumption equals energy efficiency and carbon reduction in your area.

We ensure hauliers comply with their legal obligations

We work closely with Police to ensure Hauliers travelling through your area are notifying correctly their abnormal load movements.

We support the commercial necessities of hauliers

We work with hauliers to support short notice notifications – hauliers don’t need to risk travelling un-notified because they have an urgent customer commitment.

Traffic Management & Roadwork restrictions can be built in

Traffic Management & Roadwork restrictions can be incorporated into our service and the hauliers advised of potential issues along their route.

Full flow of relevant information daily to relevant teams within your organisation

If a load exceeds specified thresholds you, your team and others nominated can receive advisory email alerts.

Indemnities from hauliers managed

We manage the indemnity process ensuring all hauliers moving through your area indemnify you against any damage.

Monthly management reports provided

You’ll receive monthly reports detailing the numbers of notifications processed and the special orders / feasibility reports completed.

Cost saving analysis

Cost saving analysisReducing operating costs is a key goal. The actual net savings gained by outsourcing your abnormal loads management to Cascade Software are significant compared to delivering the same service in-house.
 
Our cost savings calculator provides a true cost of employment figure including employee salaries and other hidden costs such as staff benefits and NI contributions. Based on the data you enter, including the number of notifications processed each week, it will illustrate your potential savings.

Example

One Abnormal Loads Operator (annual salary of £18,000) processes 100 notifications each week. They work with a Structure Manager (annual salary of £30,000) although the Structure Manager only spends 15% of their time on abnormal loads management. The savings gained by outsourcing the management of abnormal loads to Cascade would be £41,450, a 74% cost saving against running the service in-house.
