Farmers Coop Elevator
For more than a century, Farmers Cooperative Elevator has served American agriculture. When the company found that their drivers' routes were not as efficient as they could have been -- and that, often as not, they didn't know where those drivers were -- they called on AMS. AMS went above and beyond Farmers Cooperative's expectations.
They quickly realized the intended benefit of increased routing efficiency and driver performance, and also realized that the system delivered another unexpected benefit: its ability to monitor individual vehicles quickly uncovered a mechanical issue that caused one of those vehicles to burn more fuel than its counterparts in the fleet. Correcting that issue gave the Coop a long-term fuel savings atop the already significant savings brought on by better tracking and routing.
Fleet management is about much more than tracking a fleet's rolling stock. Alcon Express found that AMS was just as adept at tracking driver behavior in ways that allowed Alcon to vastly improve performance. The company suspected that its drivers were spending too much time idle between jobs, driving up company expenses by decreasing efficiency and wasting payroll.
Once the AMS system was implemented, Alcon was able to identify areas of improvement, introducing driver accountability measures that would not otherwise have been possible. The company has not been the sole beneficiary of these changes; their customers appreciate the new standard of service and accountability that's come with the AMS system.
With access to this information, a business can gather true and reliable data about any vehicle in the fleet. This knowledge allows you to monitor performance but most importantly to find out what's not working and to work out how to improve.
