The Question: How can I right size my fleets to reduce capital costs?
The Study: Gather critical battery and charger data using the PowerTrac SP+. Use PowerCharge.NET to convert and communicate that data into actionable information on truck utilization, over and under use of batteries, missed equalizations, low states of charge, low water levels, preventive maintenance alerts, warnings for battery failure, and diagnostic information for chargers and batteries.
Action taken: Streamline operations using PowerDesigners rapid and opportunity chargers configured for any truck or battery. Reduce number of batteries and eliminate need for battery changeouts. Eliminate charging rooms to free up space.
Outcome Achieved: Capital costs were effectively reduced. Additionally, labor productivity improved and labor costs decreased.
The Conclusion: Collecting, analyzing, and applying critical battery performance information is crucial to a cost-effective and productive operation.
