Omnitracs, LLC, the global pioneer of innovative and comprehensive fleet management technologies today announced that its customer, V3 Transportation, a leading provider of expedited freight transportation, has experienced 73 percent year-over-year growth and an increase of its customer base by 47 percent in 2014, and the company largely credits its use of Omnitracs Sylectus for its rapid expansion. Relying on Omnitracs’ Sylectus Transportation Management System (TMS) since day one, V3 Transportation was able to enter the market aggressively, and has rapidly grown the company in a cost effective manner by partnering with other carriers and efficiently streamlining its back office operations.
Launched in 2013 by two trucking industry veterans, Robert Poulos and John Sliter, V3 Transportation is an expedited carrier with more than 85 trucks in its fleet that specializes in same day, emergency, direct delivery across seven industry verticals. Company founders turned to Omnitracs Sylectus TMS based on the brands’ reputation and reliability as a superior technology, its affordable price, and its scalability. V3 Transportation has a centralized operation in Cleveland which serves customers predominantly in the Southeast, Midwest, and Southwest, but with Omnitracs Sylectus, the fleet is able to operate as if it were a national carrier by tapping a vast network of partner carriers and leveraging their strength in regions where V3 Transportation does not have an operating footprint. This enables the company to say yes to nearly every load request and compete effectively with bigger, brand name expedited fleets.
“V3 Transportation has been able to excel and operate on a very competitive playing field as a result of Omnitracs Sylectus,” said Robert Poulos, CEO of V3 Transportation. “We recognized the power of the technology right away and actually built it into V3’s business plan, which enabled us to rapidly grow our fleet and build a trusted network of partners. The end result is a very satisfied customer base. Omnitracs Sylectus has helped grow our business and achieve our sales and operating goals for the past two years and we believe the model is fully scalable to handle further double digit growth over the next three years. By supporting three critical functions—brokerage, dispatch and back-office operations—in one solution, Alliance Pro has provided value far beyond what any other TMS solution could.”
Omnitracs Sylectus Alliance Pro is the engine that drives all of V3 Transportations’ operations, which has created an automated workflow for the management team that assures accurate asset tracking, seamless driver communication and exceptional customer service. Since joining the network, V3 Transportation has been able to work with more than 200 partner carriers, assess capacity within its own network of owner operators or across other partner fleets, and procure and complete shipments that they would not be able to do outside of the Omnitracs network. V3 Transportation’s CEO Poulos attributes the company’s substantial revenue growth this year to Omnitracs Sylectus’ “three-in-one” functionality.
“Carriers have to juggle fluctuating demand, driver turnover, and excessive dead-head miles on a daily basis. Instead of letting these variables detract from profits, fleets like V3 Transportation have turned to Omnitracs’ Alliance Network to scale to customer demand in real time,” commented Kim Drouillard, director of sales and implementation at Omnitracs. “The concept of the sharing economy has really taken off, but we’ve seen the biggest gains in transportation. V3 Transportation is a progressive and innovative fleet that represents how Omnitracs’ unique SaaS-based TMS and associated network of like-minded fleets can solve capacity and demand challenges, while adding strategic value.”
Omnitracs Sylectus offers a cloud-based TMS that utilizes proven technology to help fleets grow their customer base and business without huge investments in labor, equipment, and marketing. Its Alliance Network connects a community of hundreds of trusted transportation companies and thousands of trucks across the United States to broker a load or access excess freight.
