The Wheels Truck Engineering Team works with our clients to ensure that lifecycle management is consistently delivering the best possible cost savings.
This begins with building the right truck selector for the right job(s), which requires consideration of a number of factors. Our engineers visit our clients’ worksites and make recommendations regarding vehicle selection and upfitting equipment. Our engineers also conduct ongoing meetings not just with clients, but with the manufacturers and upfitters. Together they to review specifications, ensure that production schedules are being met, and verify that practices are in line with corporate directives.
Based on the recommendations that resulted from a series of visits to one of our truck clients, as well as in-depth replacement analysis of the new Sprinter van, our Account Management team recommended a switch to that model due to $1.1 million in potential savings. A subsequent review of the client’s fleet expenses revealed that they had gone down $1.6 million from the previous year. This recommendation not only increased cost savings but also reduced the down time that was being experienced with the old model. This type of measurable success is how Wheels differentiates itself from the competition by delivering added value to our clients.
