TKMS is one of the largest over the road aggregate hauling trucking companies in Southeastern Michigan. They have over 150 trucks in their fleet servicing hundreds of customers in the area.  Here is what some of the people at TKMS had to say about life before and after Livegistics:

“ Before Livegistics the majority of our dispatch to truck communication was all done by radio making it virtually impossible to track activity. Now that we use Livegistics the communication and tracking between dispatching and trucking has been streamlined to almost completely through the cloud.“

Jon Russell, Dispatch, TKMS Trucking

 

“ Communication with our drivers is a key element of our business.  At first everyone was apprehensive about using a piece of software on an Ipad, but once the drivers opened up the program they were amazed at how easy it was to use.  Now we are able to track load capacity in a real time environment while at the same time significantly reducing mistakes.  At a moment’s notice we can see what trucks are loaded, which ones are empty, ETAs to site and more. The data we are able to get back from the Livegistics system allows us to make educated decisions in a moment’s notice.“

Jon Russell, Dispatch, TKMS Trucking

 

“ At TKMS, we wanted to improve efficiency in several departments. By using Livegistics, our drivers have reduced their time on the jobsite through the reduction of paperwork, our administration was processing north of 500 tickets daily and now all work is done electronically and our dispatchers can now track deliveries in real time. “

“ Collaboration between drivers and dispatch has improved significantly with less verbal chatter on the radio. There is also a “major improvement” with communication with the administration department. Information is in real time “

“ The advantages and ROI will be in saving time and money and we are just starting to see these results as we are in the final stages of implementation. Short term this is going to be a competitive advantage because we are one of the first to implement this kind of system. Long term, we expect Livegistics to have profound positive impacts on our firm. “
