Lower Overall Transportation Cost

Mission Statement

The mission of Dedicated Transportation Solutions is to profitably provide the most efficient and effective transportation alternative for our customers, while meeting all federal, state, and local laws.

Lower Overall Transportation Cost

Most Private Fleets are inefficient due to the fact that their core business is not transportation. At DTS we focus specifically on transportation and how it pertains to the customer and his customers’ needs. There is power in numbers! DTS groups together many small private fleets and manages them like a large trucking company getting greater discounts as a group than any single fleet could get alone on Lease prices, fuel purchases, maintenance agreements and many other similarly purchased services. We also MANAGE your fleet and drivers like a trucking company. We compare offsetting revenues of backhauls to the outbound loads, many times opening up markets that are too costly to currently deliver.
  • DTS gets an average of $.23 cent per gallon savings off of retail price based on volume purchases in excess of 1,000,000 gallons annually.
  • Trucks are dispatched to fuel at the location with the lowest overall cost of fuel comparing discount, distance off route, and state fuel taxes.
  • Trucks are routed on the most efficient roads for travel time, time of day and distance through a computer routing optimization program saving on average 10% of non-routed miles. If the private fleet runs 100,000 annual miles per truck and there are 10 trucks, that could eliminate the need for an entire truck, driver and fuel, or roughly, $150,000 in annual expenses!
  • Driver time and miles are verified by comparing computer route to the actual route relayed back from the on board satellite to assure the drivers follow the lowest cost path.
  • We manage fuel consumption by measuring tire pressure, idle time, engine speeds, high RPM, percent of time in cruise control, hard braking and fast starts, all influence the MPG of the equipment. DTS usually improves MPG by one half mile per gallon or better over the private fleet after a taking over the fleet. On the same fleet above traveling 1,000,000 annual miles, a ½ MPG improvement translates to roughly $50,000 savings in fuel purchases at $4.00 per gallon.
  • Not only does the private fleet eliminate the liability exposure of the fleet traveling the highways, but also the cost for that insurance premium, that on a fleet of 10 tractors, can be $70,000 a year.
 
About
We take a consultative approach to each customer. Although “trucks are trucks”, customer products and services are all different. Moving perishable products such as bread, ice, or newspaper, is very different than recyclables, lumber, or liquid. Therefore the transportation solutions will be varied to meet the individual customer’s requirements and goals read more
