OVERVIEW
Davenport Energy was looking for a way to better track and manage their large, diverse fleet of vehicles by delivering real-time data and providing the ability to track, locate and manage their drivers while out in the field.
Davenport Energy provides propane, gasoline, fuel oil and kerosene service for more than 21,000 homes and businesses throughout central, southside and southwestern Virginia.
FleetOutlook, a web-based GPS fleet and asset management solution was deployed. LMU-2600, an in-vehicle GPS hardware device was installed in all 51 of Davenport Energy's fleet vehicles. The devices, coupled with FleetOutlook, provided complete visibility of their fleet in real time.
Driver idle time, GPS logistics data
IOT
Emerging (technology has been on the market for >2 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Operational Efficiency - Cloud-based asset management significantly reduced idle times and improved asset utilization.
Real-time Tracking - The location and status of vehicles and drivers can be identified in near real-time.
End-to-end Service Delivery - Deeper integration of information across departments and business units improves internal collaboration and end-to-end customer service.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
Davenport Energy's fleet reduced the instances of idle time over 25 minutes by 64% in the first month.
During a 22-day period, Davenport Energy’s fleet reduced excessive idle events from 326 instances to 117 instances of idling for more than 25 minutes. For the next 22-day period, idle events continued to reduce from 117 instances to just 60 instances.
Davenport Energy were able to reduce excessive idle time by 80% using FleetOutlook in less than three months.
TECHNOLOGY
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
