“With FuelCloud, we don’t worry about where our fuel is going - we know FuelCloud is tracking it to each driver and project, instantly. That confidence, combined with the reporting flexibility and ease of use for our drivers, really sets FuelCloud apart from other fuel management systems.”Chris Fennema, VP, Kent Companies
One of the largest concrete contractors in the United States, Kent Companies offers a full suite of concrete construction services for projects across the eastern half of the United States. The company employs more than 900 staff and sees sales over $200 million annually.
Kent Companies operates on-site tanks at their headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan for a fleet of more than 80 vehicles and an array of heavy equipment. To track the usage of each of the site’s four tanks (and four different fuel products), Kent Companies relied on drivers to record each fueling stop manually on clipboards and paper sheets. Reconciling these recorded transactions against the levels on the tanks showed that inventory was sometimes off by as much as 200 gallons. In total, Kent Companies estimated they were losing $300 to $500 a week on missing transactions.
