Action Transportation Group: Comprehensive Data Management and Reporting

Action Transportation Group, based in Canada, is Edmonton’s largest industrial courier service, renowned for its reliable and efficient delivery solutions tailored for various industries. As a key player in the logistics sector, Action Express excels in providing same-day delivery, scheduled routes, and specialised freight handling, ensuring that goods are transported securely and promptly.

Action Transportation Group, working with thousands of different drivers and couriers, needed a comprehensive solution to send various daily reports to their drivers and the business. These reports include details of the trips, commissions, estimates, and reconciliation of the reporting periods.

The data required for the reports needed to be extracted from their own operational database, QuickBooks, and Stripe. Multiple reports needed to be generated and emailed to the required recipients.

MetaOps used Fivetran to establish continuous replication from all data sources and created several dbt models to sanitise and clean the data, generating multiple views ready for reporting. Several Python-based Azure Function Apps were developed, along with SendGrid templates, to generate the reports and send them using the SendGrid API.

With the help of MetaOps, Action Express significantly enhanced communication by sending regular and accurate reports to various users. This increase in transparency, accountability, and efficiency within the company's operations ultimately led to better service delivery and improved customer satisfaction.
