We’re on a mission to empower haulers to get the most out of their businesses

Our Story

While working for one of the largest waste management companies in North America, I saw firsthand that smaller waste & recycling haulers had inadequate tools to run their businesses. Simply put, smaller haulers weren’t being given a fair shake.

What exactly do I mean?

Well, you’d often see larger haulers using software and other technologies in their operations that was making their businesses much more efficient and difficult to compete with. Then, you’d see smaller haulers still running their businesses on pen and paper or spreadsheets. For smaller haulers, the issue with running your business like this can often result in spending too much time on basic office tasks or making operational mistakes.

So, why was there such a large gap between how larger haulers ran their businesses relative to smaller haulers?

It came down to one thing: all software that had been developed for the waste industry was created for larger haulers – making this software both too expensive and painfully complex for a smaller hauling operation.

Because of what I saw, I left my job in the waste industry to build Basestation, a software solution specifically designed for small- to medium-sized waste & recycling haulers that was simple, powerful, and most importantly, affordable – all designed to make the jobs of haulers easier.

At Basestation, we're on a mission to empower smaller haulers to start competing against “the big guys” in waste management and to get the most out of their businesses. Basestation helps haulers manage their businesses from one, centralized system – assisting them with everything from scheduling routes and tracking assets to dispatching drivers and invoicing customers.

We can’t wait to help take your hauling business to the next level with Basestation!
