Sterling Solutions has performed numerous fleet management studies in which our clients were able to significantly reduce cost while maintaining and often times, improving service performance. Our team of experienced, senior industry mangers understand the operating and competitive realities in implementing improvement initiatives.
As such, we begin and end with the customer in mind in achieving improvement goals. Beyond our experienced project management team, we bring the proven industry experience necessary to implement strategic fleet management initiatives which can move our clients well past tactical cost improvement.
Because we have years of experience dealing with fleets of all sizes, types and uses throughout the U.S., we understand the cost structures, operating conditions and regulatory requirements placed on private fleets. For the vast majority of our clients their fleet is not a core part of the business nor is it a core strategy for them. However, it is an essential component for effective operations and service performance for their customers and clients. The fleet in many ways is what the customer actually sees and as such the fleet is the personification of the company. When the driver rolls up with his load to a job site, to a warehouse or to a distributor, he has many roles to perform. Being safe and on time is critical, but so is having the right product, in the right condition and in the right amount. Fleets take on a much strategic role than most think.
We are not a substitute nor do we replace in-house management expertise, but rather we provide effective and proven ways to evaluate and justify the fleet in terms of productivity, value and cost performance. We continually work with a host of shippers and transportation intermediaries throughout the United States and Canada providing us insight about trends, capacity and lanes in making relevant and informed decisions in improving fleet operations.
