With 175 power units, Napa Transportation is a respected regional truckload carrier of food and consumer products. The company operates in nearly 1/3 of the U.S., mostly-but not exclusively-throughout the New England and Mid-Atlantic states. Napa Transportation was founded in 1991 and headquartered in Mechanicsburg, PA.
TMW Systems, Inc., welcomes Napa Transportation as a new customer using IDSC ExpertFuel®, the leading fuel optimization software. Engineered to work seamlessly with legacy systems and technology infrastructures, IDSC ExpertFuel will interface with the company?s existing technology.
IDSC ExpertFuel is designed specifically for truckload carriers to minimize fuel costs and out-of-route miles. At dispatch, drivers receive a fuel/route plan detailing number of gallons to purchase at inexpensive and expensive stops. Using a unique algorithm to calculate all essential factors and best-in-class pricing/routing data, fuel plans are generated in real-time, in a matter of seconds. All relevant route and vehicle factors are considered in the solution including:
- Current fuel prices, fuel level, vehicle fuel consumption, fuel network implications
- State tax implications
- Out-of-route miles, route policies
- Terminal fueling and tank fill policies
- Driver amenities
