Leading distributor taps Penske Logistics to analyze and optimize fleet

Challenge: Suspecting inefficiencies, a leading distributor wanted to model its fleet resource requirements consisting of trucks and drivers for approximately 50 distribution centers. They needed outside consulting expertise to perform the analysis.

Solution: Through its proprietary technology and modeling tools, Penske Logistics calculated the optimal number of network resources and fleet statistics. Penske's predictive model uses a state-of-the-art analysis that requires far less data than other fleet-sizing models, enabling a faster turnaround.

Results: Penske identified an opportunity to improve efficiencies by reducing driver count by 11 percent and truck count by six percent. Penske also provided the distributor with an improved understanding of the key parameters directly impacting their fleet size, detailed changes required to achieve the optimal fleet, and data to support executive decision-making.
