Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 5, 2006
GEOCOMtms, a global provider of Fleet Management software for the Petroleum industry, announced today that Lubricant Technologies, one of the Southeast’s leading distributors of lubricants and fuels, has implemented the company’s A.MAZE Planning™ solution for optimizing daily route planning.
Lubricant Technologies has been serving the southeastern United States for more than 75 years, becoming one of the Southeast's premier distributors of lubricants and fuels to customers in the automotive, commercial, and industrial markets. The company offers a complete line of bulk and packaged lubricants under both the Exxon and Mobil brands, as well as diesel fuel and heating oil. In addition to its headquarters location in Apex, North Carolina, Lubricant Technologies also operates terminals in New Bern, North Carolina; Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina; and Pembroke, Georgia.
“Our commitment to our customers is to provide superior products and services,” said Glenn White, President and Chief Operations Officer of Lubricant Technologies. “As part of that commitment, we strive to operate as efficiently as possible, which allows us to offer our customers the best possible value. The GEOCOMtms solution will give us more control over fleet operations and drive down our costs. It should also improve our ability to respond quickly to customer needs.”
A.MAZE Planning, a fully integrated component of GEOCOMtms’ A.MAZE Fleet Management™ solution, is designed to address the unique needs of the petroleum industry. Patent-pending technology makes it possible for customers to develop optimized route plans for multi-compartment vehicles, a critical requirement for lubricant distributors. Other components of A.MAZE Planning include the ability to automate selection of refill points based on product availability and price at each depot, and a forecasting module that uses historical consumption patterns to plan for scheduled deliveries.
“GEOCOMtms has the experience and expertise in the petroleum industry to help distributors reduce operating costs by improving daily planning,” said Michael Nark, president and chief executive officer of GEOCOMtms. “Our reputation with other lubricant distributors is one of the reasons Lubricant Technologies chose to work with us. We value their trust and are committed to helping them achieve long-term success with A.MAZE Planning.”
In addition to implementing A.MAZE Planning, GEOCOMtms is also working with Lubricant Technologies to deploy a handheld application developed by McPherson Oil Products.
GEOCOMtms provides integrated fleet management software for local and short-haul pickup and delivery operations. A.MAZE Fleet Management™ includes tools for managing territory design, route planning, trucking dispatch, GPS fleet tracking, mobile field service, and fleet maintenance. Everyday, leading organizations choose the A.MAZE suite to direct thousands of vehicles from hundreds of depots and distribution centers. Busy logistics executives depend on A.MAZE because it delivers enterprise visibility and complete control over fleet operations. By partnering with GEOCOMtms, customers like Craft Oil Corp, Lorden Oil, Lubricant Technologies, and McPherson Oil Products have reduced operating costs while raising the level of customer service they provide.
