Edmonton, AB (PRWEB) April 14, 2008

Connecticut waste removal and demolition firm AMEC Carting has selected Safefreight's GPS vehicle tracking system to provide them with real-time fleet management data for their trucks.

"SmartFleet® provides us with the tools to better serve our customers and reduce fleet costs," said AMEC president, Guy Mazzola. "We looked at a number of vendors but we chose Safefreight because of their user-friendly internet application and their commitment to customer service," said Mazzola.

With SmartFleet®, AMEC users can easily create real-time exception-based alerts to optimize customer service and fleet productivity. Beyond knowing where their trucks are, when they got there and how long they stayed, SmartFleet® also provides AMEC important information about keeping those vehicles properly maintained and on the road. The SmartFleet® GPS fleet management system provides a service that delivers information to increase AMEC's overall productivity and profitability.

According to a 2007 report by the Aberdeen Group, businesses are "... using fleet management solutions to realize such benefits as 12.2% increase in service profitability, 13.0% improvement in vehicle utilization, and 14.8% decrease in travel time, and 27.9% increase in operator compliance." The report also concludes that businesses justified the investment in fleet management solutions as a result of average annual savings of $1,100 per vehicle in operational costs alone.

With the recent addition of new features to SmartFleet® Manager -- Safefreight's online fleet management software -- AMEC users can:

  • Optimize routes and send turn-by-turn directions to drivers in real-time
  • Quickly identify closest vehicle to a location and dispatch that vehicle for more efficient deployment of fleet assets
  • Visualize SmartFleet® data in Google Earth

"We appreciate the opportunity to help AMEC enhance their level of customer service through telematic fleet management," said Curtis Serna, CEO of Safefreight. "AMEC is a service oriented company and they expect the same high standard from their suppliers. We look forward to meeting that standard," added Serna.
