A forest products company, with over 4,000 employees and six plants, needed to improve how it class 8 tractor trailer fleet delivered building materials to its customers in the western United States. Initially, management simply wanted a reliable fleet management solution to cut operating costs and help comply with US Hours of Service (HOS) regulations, but soon they found that they could gain additional returns on investment in two key ways:

“Drivers use an automated form for delivery. This form includes additional services that the company offers its customers. With an automated solution, drivers are reminded to ask customers about these additional services. After deploying Quadrant, Peninsula is able to generate up to $1,200 of additional services per week.”
Realize a quick return on telematics investment
After factoring in the first-year hardware investment and ongoing service, fuel savings from reduced vehicle idling helped the company realize a return on its investment in less than two years.
