Frotcom enabled Earl Transport to increase productivity, reduce downtime, and ensure its vehicles and goods' safety and security.
Established in 1978, Earl Transport Ltd has the ability and experience to handle all transport requirements. The support of the Frotcom business partner in the United Kingdom - Jet GPS Fleet Solutions – was vital for Earl Transport to get the most of our intelligent fleet management system and overcome the transportation company's challenges.
Client Goals and Challenges
Above all, the company’s key challenge was to use a fleet management system that effectively could help Earl Transport comply with industry legislation and run its operations smoothly. To overcome this, Jet GPS provided the Frotcom training needed to ensure the company gets the most out of the software, now and in the future.
The company started monitoring the movement of 17 vehicles and quickly began receiving real-time fuel consumption information, detailed information about all tank fueling, and draining operations, like miles per gallon (mpg) information. Fuel level alarms also proved to be quite helpful in identifying and preventing fuel theft.
Frotcom also saved travel time and money to the Earl Transport’s team as the office employees no longer have to travel to each truck to collect the tachograph data. Vehicle downtimes have decreased, as data is now remotely downloaded, thanks to Frotcom’s Remote tachograph download.
The integration of live streaming multi-cameras in the fleet was another big plus, helping resolve insurance claims quickly in the event of road accidents or alleged incidents, provided and supported by Jets GPS.
Nowadays, Frotcom TV runs on a big screen at the Earl Transport office and is helping the team watch the real-time progress of each trip of its fleet, as well as staying one step forward in terms of decisions that need to be taken.
Moreover, the long-term relationship established with the Frotcom Business Partner, Jet GPS, is highly valued by the customer and is seen as one of the significant benefits of this collaboration.
In the words of Peter Hughes, Managing Director at Earl Transport, “Anytime, day or night, each driver’s hours are related back to the office, so we know if we can ask a driver to do a job. It’s not impossible, because we can tell from the office how many hours he’s got left. It just tells us everything we need to know. We also have live views back into the office, which is proved to be a big plus!”
Overall, the chosen features and the business relationship with Jan Evans, Managing Director at Jet GPS Fleet Solutions allowed Earl Transport to take all the advantages of the Frotcom software, and thus obtain the expected results.
The client's testimony speaks for itself: "In the past, we never imagined needing a fleet management system, but today, we can no longer live without it."
