Blackburns Chimney Services started looking for an asset monitoring solution after one of their utility trailers was stolen. In addition to the cost of the physical trailer, the company had to replace all the expensive equipment and tools in the utility trailer at the time. Despite having security cameras on premise, they had no way to monitor their vehicles, track their assets in real-time and also have a way to quickly be alerted if the asset was moved during non-working hours or stolen.
Church Transportation was having an issue with reliable visibility of their trailers which resulted in trailers going missing or being misappropriated by their customers as storage units. While they conducted physical asset checks, these were infrequent and time-consuming. Between yard checks, drivers and other employees manually tracked the company’s assets, which was not only prone to human error but also consumed valuable labor hours that could have been better utilized elsewhere.
WP Rawl has been continuing to grow demand and began to offer overnight deliveries to their customers. They were losing valuable time and money by manually logging day-to-day routes. The management began looking for ways to move more loads, increase profits, and cut down on communication time and tracking errors.
WP Rawl needed to optimize their fleet and was looking for a minute-by-minute visibility solution that could help manage its overall truck and driver performance.
The customer recently acquired a fleet of electric mopeds equipped with telematics devices that were integrated with a custom software application, which was not included in the acquisition. This left a huge gap in their business model as the data collected by the devices provided critical operational metrics needed to run their business. In addition, cellular service for the devices was due to be shut off within 30 days of being contracted.
With the mopeds essentially inoperable, and only 30 days to collect valuable telemetry from the existing devices, the customer turned to Powerfleet for help.
Never satisfied with the status quo when it comes to improving operations, Walmart began looking at wireless technology for another application: controlling and monitoring forklifts and industrial vehicles that move merchandise inside its distribution centers. More than 100 such vehicles are utilized in a typical Walmart distribution facility. Walmart developed a list of required and desired functions for the “ideal” industrial vehicle management system. For productivity management, Walmart wanted to implement new activity metrics to better analyze and optimize the utilization of vehicles and operators. Management also wished to achieve better asset visibility, including a more detailed understanding of time- motion history. In addition, Walmart wanted to enhance work assignment communication, especially in response to unexpected changes in task priorities.

The Continental Tire team, led by Fleet & Rolling Stock Manager Nathan Baugher, identified several challenges that could be resolved with a Vehicle Management System (VMS).
