Peoria Ford grew profits by more than $1 million per year, increased their gross per copy to more than $400, and saved valuable hours with LoJack.

I would tell everybody that’s looking to save your people’s time and energy to go with LoJack.”
Precision Toyota saved 30-35 mins to locate vehicles for test drives across their lots as well as improved all aspects of the sales process.

While every fleet management provider will boast about the convenience of its product, it’s not every day that you hear a story about a life saved. When we heard the following remarkable story from one long-time Spireon customer, we thought it best to allow him to share his story in his own words.

“It’s also easy to run reports. Before, I used to have to run log audits, which would take hours. Now it’s just a matter of plugging in and there’s a report there for me. I don’t have to do it by hand anymore.”
Premier Trailer Leasing
Premier Trailer Leasing utilized valuable insights through rich data provided by Spireon’s trailer tracking solution to get real time mileage, reduce risk management and more.

By improving the overall visibility of their bulk commodity hauling fleet throughout Southern California, Eggelton Trucking was able to be more responsive to customer needs and grow their business.
“[A customer] thought I had twice as many trucks than I did, because we work efficiently, and the reason we work efficiently is because we know where the trucks are all the time. The biggest tool for me in FleetLocate is the mobile app because it gives me the ability to know exactly where all the trucks are and acts like a dispatch on the fly.”
Covenant Transportation Group
With over 2700 trucks and 6500 trailers, Covenant Transport upgraded their fleet with FleetLocate to help reduce fleet size, improve utilization and operations, and recover stolen trailers.

With FleetLocate, they were able to reduce costs and idle time. They also saw an increase in efficiency and asset utilization by 10-25% and gained visibility into driver/asset location.

“Spireon’s product, device form factors, ability to integrate with our APIs, and option for solar is what keeps us as a customer. Additionally, everyone I’ve encountered at Spireon has been great and very easy to work with.”
Summitt Trucking, LLC
National truckload carrier switches telematics provider in order to ramp-up loads by 3 times per week, saving $500K or more per year. Spireon’s solar-powered FL 22+ device, combined with its IntelliScan cargo sensor, was the perfect solution for Summitt’s mix of dry van, reefer, and storage trailers. Summitt Trucking no longer has to worry about wasted driver time and lost revenue.
We recognized that we are spending about $500,000 or more annually, just having our drivers go and look for empties. In the end, we will have taken that $500,000 or more expense and turned it into a profit.”
