SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – M&M Pipeline Services' fleet now operates more efficiently with Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) GPS fleet tracking and all-satellite mobile resource management capabilities. FMS helps ensure the crew starts on time, meets commitments each day, and completes projects on schedule, according to Mike Maddox, who has operated M&M's fleet for more than 10 years.
In addition, Brandon Chandler manages the fleet maintenance scheduling and uses FMS products to monitor engine hours, preserving vehicle life and reducing breakdowns. M&M uses FMS fleet tracking systems on heavy equipment and fleet trucks, providing a complete view of their asset utilization and operations.
In a recent project, the company was subcontractor to pipeline construction giant Willbros Group, Inc., another FMS client. William Windham, vice president - Assets for Willbros has more than 300 vehicles equipped with FMS products and is finding new ways to improve the fleet's operations and bottom line every day.
"We have found FMS solutions to operate anywhere we are working, regardless of geography or topography, providing us with the critical asset operation and management information we need." said Windham. In addition, Willbros has dramatically reduced unauthorized use of vehicles which in turns saves fuel costs and reduces the organization's liability.
