One of the biggest expenses for maintaining delivery fleet vehicles is the replacement cost for brake rotors, especially in areas affected by road salt and severe weather. Following the release of TruBlue brake rotors, 300 Below has noticed rapid adoption among smaller fleets with quick-to-act management structures in place.
Larger enterprise organizations are often constrained by supplier restrictions in their existing accounting systems, with mandates to cut costs from corporate management by using single-source providers. Entrepreneurially-minded SME (small-to-medium enterprise) suppliers, which grow their teams and knowledge heterogeneously (thereby enhancing innovation and producing cost saving technologies) are often precluded from procurement opportunities found through single source suppliers. Large enterprise fleet managers, as a result, are forced by their ERP or Accounting teams to manage fleets through older relationships that may choose to increase pricing over time or provide standardized parts, while reducing competitive bids from SME suppliers who may have a newer or more innovative product.
Following the rollout of Amazon.com local delivery vehicles, 300 Below has stepped up efforts to assist new delivery fleets with adopting its enhanced brake rotor technology. TruBlue rotors are enhanced using a “green” environmentally-friendly technology that is established using the air we breathe. Additional earth-friendly benefits include a significant reduction of brake dust, which sustains a greater environmental footprint when you consider delivery fleets that have tens of thousands of vehicles on the road.
“Usually in business development it requires being proactive with your prospects. At this stage though, the buzz is building, and we’re starting to see fleet managers approaching us directly, asking when our distribution partners are coming online. It’s still in the works, of course, and we are eager to announce the new distribution partners once they resolve their own positioning questions," says Pete Paulin, President & C.E.O. of 300 Below, Inc. "Empowering new distributors to provide the best fleet braking technology for their customers remains our priority. It's our privilege to aid new research and innovation that 300 Below’s partners expect from us.”
An average small fleet of 100 vehicles will save $373,000+ over seven years by switching to TruBlue brake rotors as opposed to retaining standard components on the chassis. Further partnership announcements for TruBlue braking component distribution among major Midwest-based fleet distributors is pending.
“Using TruBlue rotors gets results. Every truck reaps average savings of $1,038.13 on brake jobs alone, which funds new training, labor and safety initiatives for fleets, increasing the bottom line for our customers. Fleet managers enjoy working with us because they become the heroes on their teams," says Randy Prince, Director of Fleet Marketing & Sales for TruBlue Brakes at 300 Below.
