Encore Tire Recovery, makers of a mobile tire shredding system that turns scrap tires into "environmentally friendly" products, has selected RedPrairie's Fleet Management solution to support its growing business.
"Over 280 million scrap tires are discarded throughout the United States each year, posing the second-worst environmental problem in the country, if not the world," says Paul Merklinger, CEO of Encore. Our 'Encore T2' mobile shredding vehicle has the capacity to shred 500 tires per hour which are later turned into environmentally friendly products at an Encore processing facility. RedPrairie's Fleet Management solution is going to allow us to scale our business, save money, and ensure our 'T2' fleet operations are efficient and environmentally responsible."
Merklinger says Encore will have more immediate financial information available to it by combining Fleet Management with Encore's financial management systems. "This is vital to managing a growth curve of up to 300 trucks in service over the next three years."
Erv Bluemner, RedPrairie's vice president of product strategy for transportation, says: "Efficient fleet planning and daily routing saves fuel and time--critical factors to a growing and 'green' business. As Encore continues to grow, we think they will see enormous efficiencies and cost savings from our Fleet Management solution."
