Challenge

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. In order to keep up with transportation demand, V-Line Inc. needed a way to efficiently track and monitor its vehicles.

Solution

After being contacted by a NexTraq® sales representative, Alisia Valdovines, Office Secretary at V-Line Inc., went through the demonstration process and selected the NexTraq Fleet Tracking solution due to its ease-of-use and extensive reporting and tracking capabilities. Valdovines said, “After going through the demo process, I knew the tracking capabilities that the NexTraq solution provided would be beneficial to our business.”

Valdovines also noted how seamless the integration and training process was. “The implementation and training process wasn’t complicated and it didn’t take very long at all. For 7 trucks, it took about an hour. Our sales representative was quick to respond to any questions and has provided an excellent level of support.”

Results

Since implementing the NexTraq Fleet Tracking solution, V-Line Inc. has increased overall fleet efficiency. Valdovines said, “Because the NexTraq solution can be integrated with other applications, we were able to automate our manual processes, improving our overall efficiency.” She adds, “Being able to track our vehicles at all times and access key information about our vehicles has helped play a major role in streamlining our processes.”

In addition to improving overall efficiency, V-Line Inc. was also able to reduce its fuel costs. Valdovines said, “Before implementing a fleet tracking solution, we didn’t have a way to monitor our fleet’s fuel usage. With NexTraq, we can see how much fuel is being used, helping us curb wasteful fuel practices among our drivers.” Valdovines adds, “Our stop times and idle times have improved 100 percent.”

V-Line Inc. was also able to increase employee productivity since implementing the NexTraq Fleet Tracking solution. “Now that our employees know they are being tracked, 80 percent of our drivers have improved their productivity,” Valdovines said. “The NexTraq solution has made it easier to take corrective action.”
