Warren Distributing deploys DecisionPoint Fleet Control system

Warren Distributing, a beer distributor serving New Jersey markets with a 100-truck fleet, announced that it has completed the deployment of DecisionPoint’s Fleet Control long-haul truck fleet management system which DecisionPoint developed and co-markets with Verizon.

The Fleet Control integrated solution platform is designed to meet all of the core business requirements for fleet management including: DOT electronic hours-of-service, automatic vehicle location, IFTA and state mileage reporting, daily vehicle inspection report (DVIR), comprehensive proof-of-delivery solution, DecisionPoint's proprietary instant talk, always on, Grapevine push-to-talk, and DecisionPoint MobileCare services. The Fleet Control hours of service and vehicle management applications are provided by Xata Corp.

“Fleet Control has transformed our operations,” said Michael Holden, Warren’s director of technology. “We now have complete real-time visibility into our distribution and logistics operations which has allowed us to streamline our distribution operations. This has resulted in improved service levels to our customers and improved productivity throughout our delivery systems. DecisionPoint’s technicians supported and assisted in the training of over 100 drivers and managers. In addition, we are a multi-site company, and with DecisionPoint’s 24-hour support desk, we no longer need in-house technical support personnel at each of our sites. DecisionPoint deployed the new system flawlessly in approximately four weeks. I do not know how we could have done this without Fleet Control, DecisionPoint and our carrier Verizon.”
