“Prophesy OnDemand organizes our business from top to bottom and allows us to really focus on the one-on-one client relationships that we strive to maintain. It definitely helps us keep track of the company’s productivity. We are growing and expect to triple in size over the next couple of years."

Founded by George S. Hunter III, Derby City Logistics, LLC began as a small trucking company based out of Louisville, Kentucky. At its start-up, the company consisted of two employees and a fleet of three trucks.
Finding the Right Solution
Before purchasing Prophesy OnDemand, the team at Derby City Logistics spent much of their time dispatching manually. Casey Robinson, Derby City Logistics Operations Manager, shared, “Everything was manual. Drivers were paid a flat rate and the payroll was outsourced.”
Implementing the System
In order to ease the transition from manual work to Prophesy OnDemand, many Derby City Logistics' employees took advantage of Prophesy’s training services. Among these employees was Casey Robinson, who participated in one-on-one training over the telephone. “I found our training very useful since I was able to take part in a one-on-one session and the trainer was able to shadow my computer and guide me step by step,” said Casey.
Derby City Logistics now has over 10 employees and manages a fleet of nine over-the-road trucks, along with leased units, that primarily haul automotive freight and general commodities regionally and locally. The company focuses its time on truckload, LTL, 3PL (third party logistics), dedicated freight, and yard management services.
