In Plain Sight

Integrating routing and dispatch systems with onboard communications and computing systems boost visibility to provide valuable data driving powerful business decisions.


Asset Utilization

TMW Systems has an asset utilization mindset and a financial performance design approach to optimal routing, explains Monica Truelsch, director of marketing for the Beachwood, OH-based company. “The food industry traditionally has very narrow margins. So we provide visibility into the various cost components such as administration, network operating expenses, and overhead involved in managing a fleet profitably.”

Most food producers, grocery stores, and food packagers don’t have the technology required to improve the overall cost control and efficiency of their operations, Truelsch says. “They are charged with fulfilling orders from the corporate ERP system and somewhere along the way they have to account for their expenses while trying to minimize costs. TMW has found a niche for fleets in the food industry to achieve efficient and cost-effective transportation operations and maximum asset utilization so they can operate profitably. So a specific tool like the TMW dispatch and operations software can help food companies track costs and identify cost-savings opportunities.”

She emphasizes that it is critical to integrate the business activities of the fleet and the distribution process to look for new opportunities to increase productivity and reduce overall operating costs.
