Improved fleet management and tracking have helped Southern States Cooperative reduce fleet costs by 18%.

Managing a fleet across multiple states can pose major challenges. Keeping track of mileage, fuel tax information, maintenance, and asset utilization results in mounds of paperwork and manual data entry. Southern States Cooperative, one of the largest farmer-owned cooperatives in the U.S., operates 200 locations in nine states. The organization purchases, manufactures, and processes feed, seed, fertilizer, farm supplies, and fuel and also operates a network of feed mills, fertilizer plants, distribution centers, cotton gins, turf warehouses, and other facilities. The co-op provides a variety of services as well, from delivering fuel to farms to applying fertilizer in the field using a fleet of 2,500 vehicles.
