Daniel Sherry has been a delivery contractor for FedEx Ground for the past 11 years. But with the recent increase in online shopping, ground delivery has boomed, especially in the rural areas. With a small business and a fleet of 28 trucks, managing delivery routes, servicing daily pick-up customers, and keeping track of fleet maintenance can be a challenge. To solve this, DR Sherry Inc. implements GPS truck tracking to reduce fuel consumption, increase deliveries, and regularly maintain delivery vehicles. While using Fleetmatics, DR Sherry has been able to increase deliveries from 1,000 to 1,300 daily.This year, being able to respond to customer inquiries has saved Daniel $12,600. Using GPS tracking, he can also monitor how long trucks are idling. By cutting out an hour of idling each day per truck, Daniel estimated his business will save over $27,000 this year just in fuel costs. Business is booming so well, in fact, Daniel won Entrepreneur of the Year for his region by FedEx.
