Proudfoot capabilities

  • Do you need to improve fleet utilization?
  • Do you need to install further automation and train your employees to adapt?
  • Do you need to reduce maintenance costs?
  • Do you need to improve terminal time usage?

We achieve this by focusing on your people. We use our know-how of the transportation and logistics industry to design and implement best practices and training on scheduling, supply chain, maintenance, safety and operations. Reducing overtime hours, operating penalties and crew fatigue, we facilitate employees’ ability to direct efforts towards maximizing asset utilization, cost reduction and safe delivery of services.

As we work together with the people doing the work we uncover processes that are not required or can be fixed to save lost time. Simple fixes costing a few dollars can save minutes here and there saving thousands of dollars over the year. Fixing the frustrations of the people means more engagement from the team and a better work culture.

  • Reduce overtime labor costs by 50% and fleet population by 14%?
  • Create a more productive and effective workforce while improving operational performance?
  • Reduce the number of injury incidents through training road foremen to be more effective?
