For commercial freight/transport companies, keeping up with transportation demand is crucial. Ask V-Line, Inc. The trucking company needed a way to efficiently track and monitor its vehicles in order to maintain transportation demand. After implementing a GPS fleet tracking solution from NexTraq®, V-Line Inc. was able to streamline its processes, increasing overall efficiency.
Established in 2010, V-Line Inc. provides a full line of services including truck and trailer repair, dry and refrigerated carrier services, as well as cross dock for freight. Aside from increasing fleet efficiency, the trucking company was also able to reduce its fuel costs. Alisia Valdovines, Office Secretary at V-Line Inc. said, “Before implementing a fleet tracking solution, we didn’t have a way to monitor our fleet’s fuel usage. With NexTraq, we have the ability to see how much fuel is being used, helping us curb wasteful fuel practices among our drivers. Our stop times and idle times have improved 100 percent.”
Additional benefits? V-Line Inc. was able to increase employee productivity. Valdovines said, “Now that our employees know they are being tracked, 80 percent of our drivers have improved their productivity. The NexTraq solution has made it easier to take corrective action.”
