myGeoTracking Lowers Logistics Costs

FOUNDATION XPRESS CASE STUDY

Company Profile

Founded in 1999, Foundation Xpress (previously Piedmont Logistics) is a private firm specializing in Third Party Logistics (3PL) and freight brokering. It uses a large pool of drivers and carriers to meet its commitments, which range from US Government contracts to private contracts and customers.

Business Challenge

The US Government has mandated new location reporting requirements for all freight contracts, in addition to "hands free" regulations for drivers that pose new compliance issues for the transportation industry.

Business Solution

Abaqus Inc., deployed its BizUSPS location service, part of its broader myGeoTracking platform offering, to help Foundation Xpress comply with its US Government contract requirements. Foundation Xpress now seamlessly manages all their US Government "Trips" from the biz USPS Trip management dashboard by enabling:

BUSINESS BENEFITS

  • Meet US Government location reporting requirements and keep their contracts.
  • Saved at least $30,000 in capital expenses by eliminating the need for costly in-vehicle GPS-devices.
  • Saves as much as $10,000 per month on operating costs.
  • Enable a wide range of carriers to work through Foundation Xpress to easily expand into US Government business where contracts require GPS location reporting.
  • Assign Drivers to these Trips and Cost effectively Locate, Message and Manage them using their own phones while providing them complete opt-in & opt-out control.
  • Streamline operations and speed up response times for ad-hoc tasks.

The BizUSPS service from Abaqus not only helped us save our US Government contracts and cut our costs by tens of thousands of dollars, it's also allowing us to expand and get additional contracts and new business.
