D.H. Griffin experienced a 70% improvement in efficiency and overhauled reporting with a new fleet management solution.

Trucking operations are subject to an ever increasing number of state and federal regulations, and keeping accurate records related to mileage, fuel consumption, hours of service, and other information is critical to avoid potentially hefty fines. For operators of large, busy fleets, gathering all of the necessary data manually is nearly impossible.

D.H. Griffin Wrecking Co. learned this firsthand when manual fuel tax record keeping led to inaccuracies that caught the attention of auditors. To address this issue, the company implemented an automated fleet management solution that has not only vastly improved the accuracy of its records, but also improved efficiency by nearly 70 percent.
