Challenge

Founded in 2009, Sunrise Transport Group, Inc. specializes in goods transportation. With employees transporting goods to every city in the U.S., Sunrise Transport Group Inc. needed an efficient way to locate their trucks and communicate with their drivers.

Solution

After receiving a call from a NexTraq® sales representative, Sunrise Transport Group, Inc. decided to implement the NexTraq Fleet Tracking solution due to its extensive vehicle tracking capabilities. Susan Santana, Operations Manager for Sunrise Transport Group Inc., said, “We chose the NexTraq solution because it gives us the ability to locate our trucks without having to call and ask the drivers where they are.”

Results

Since utilizing the NexTraq solution, Sunrise Transport Group Inc. has increased fleet efficiency by 100%. Santana said, “Before implementing the NexTraq solution, we were using cell phones to communicate with our drivers. Now, I can send the drivers messages without having to text them their information. It saves us a lot of time.”

Santana notes that the ability to locate vehicles quickly has made it easier to help the drivers get back on route if they get lost. She said, “When our drivers don’t know where they are, I can quickly pull up their location and send directions to help guide them.”

Additionally, the NexTraq Fleet Tracking solution has helped Santana to monitor vehicle activity and ensure drivers are staying on schedule. Santana said, “I can see how long a truck has been stopped at a specific location. If a truck has been sitting for an unusual period of time, I can contact the driver and ask what’s going on.”

With the NexTraq IFTA Fuel Tax Report, Santana has been able to streamline the process for recording IFTA miles. Santana said, “I love the fact that all miles are recorded for IFTA and I can just print them out. No more waiting for the drivers to turn in their miles.” She adds, “Being able to automate this process has saved me time and headaches.”

Santana concludes, “NexTraq has a great product. Implementation didn’t take long at all, and I was impressed with how easy the training process was. It has been a great experience so far.” Sunrise Transport Group Inc. plans to utilize more of the features and functionality within the application in the near future.
