Trackwell ADS, the U.S. subsidiary of Iceland-based TrackWell, announced today that Avalon Foodservice has implemented the Trackwell Fleet™ system in their fleet of 29 delivery vehicles. System components include Trackwell Messenger™, Trackwell Route™ and Trackwell Nav™. Based in Canal Fulton, Ohio, Avalon Foodservice is a broadline foodservice distributor and supplies all food and supply product categories to the healthcare, local independent, national and regional multi-unit restaurants, and other commercial and non-commercial customer segments throughout Ohio and bordering states.
“The Trackwell system provides us the tools we need to give our customers the highest level of service while allowing us the operational controls necessary to reduce our expenses,” said Len Meuti, Senior Vice President Operations, Avalon Foodservice. “Our driver’s have quickly adopted the paperless DOT logs and utilize the onboard navigation system to help them with directions to new or unfamiliar stops. Our customer service representatives find the Trackwell Route feature invaluable in being able to see up to the moment status of every route without having to call drivers on their cell phones.”
“We are excited to have Avalon Foodservice join the growing family of companies using our systems to reduce operating costs, improve customer service and automate regulatory compliance”, said Tom Lemke, Executive Vice President, Trackwell ADS. “We have created the right combination of operational tools for the distribution industry at a cost effective price point at a time when fleets struggle to operate more efficiently in the current economy.”
