Centralized Routing Fuels Cost Reductions

Safety-Kleen, a subsidiary of Good Harbors, has made the decision to centralize routing of their trucks. There was no consistent message or process, as every branch would route their trucks differently. The drivers would essentially design their own routes based on their daily tickets that had come in. The initial phase of the process had 100 of the 200 branches switch over to centralized routing. In the 18 months since the roll-out, on-time performance has improved 78 percent. In the first year, revenue and gallons per mile have improved 19%. On top of that, the total first year cost reductions are nearly $6 million.
