Industry: Distribution & Delivery
The Situation: Temco Distribution wanted to automate deliveries without the headache of having to purchase and operate expensive hardware and software onsite.
The Cheetah Solution: Temco selected the Cheetah Delivery™ logistics optimization and dispatch application. Instead of purchasing the software, Temco rents it from Cheetah on an Application Service Provider (ASP) basis for a low monthly fee per truck.
The Results: Temco managed something it has struggled with for years – expanding beyond 500-600 deliveries per day while remaining profitable. By implementing Cheetah Delivery, Temco’s volume of traffic has soared and its margins have increased – due to increased efficiency.
“We were having tremendous problems with tracking reschedules and we would actually miss customers and the product would not go out on the day it was supposed to. They were expecting a delivery and it didn't happen. That has been eliminated with the Cheetah Delivery system.
“Cheetah Delivery has enabled us to provide superior customer service while our volume increases. This is the opposite of what we experienced before. As our volume increases, we can now easily handle more deliveries.
“I really looked for a better deal and researched four or five different systems. Dollar for dollar, the Cheetah system was the most advanced, the most complete and Cheetah was the most willing to work with us on the integration needed.”
