WINNIPEG, Jan. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Commercial trucking and bus fleets are slashing on-road repair costs and reducing related down time by using the state-of-the-art online application available from TruckDown Info International, Inc.
Using the "TruckDown" program, fleets can build and manage their own private vendor networks online. Fleets can use TruckDown's existing network of more than 30,000 vendors to get started, and flag preferred vendors as they are added to fleet networks. Fleets can also insert notes about vendor pricing and service, and share their custom networks fleet-wide. Additionally, fleets can use "TruckDown" to generate and save truck-legal routes and search for vendors along those routes at any point.
Two types of accounts are available to fleets: "TruckDown Basic," which is free of charge to fleets, and "TruckDown Advanced." Advanced accounts are available for an extremely low annual fee and are typically used by carriers that have more than 50 regular vendors, specific vendor pricing and/or service arrangements, and more than one person arranging maintenance and repairs. Using either type of account, however, fleets of any size can reduce their maintenance and repair costs by using the right vendor, in the right place, and at the right time.
"TruckDown is about more than finding a vendor," said Bob Toews, CEO of TruckDown Info International. "It's about finding vendors that will give you the best response time, at the best price, and will do the work right the first time."
To learn more about savings experienced by fleets already using "TruckDown," see the case studies attached to this news release. Or go to www.truckdown.com and click on the floating "Case Studies" tab found on the right hand side of all pages.
