How Pacific States Petroleum Transformed its On-Site Fuelling Business from Paper-Centric to Digital-Centric with FleetPanda
Pacific States Petroleum, California’s largest on-site fuelling company has been dedicated to working non-stop to ensure punctual deliveries and great customer service for 23 years.
However, the existing operations processes relied heavily on ‘people’ and ‘paper’ making operations manual, tedious and inefficient. And the need for efficiency and accuracy fuelled the leadership team to embrace digital transformation.
Pacific States needed to overcome the challenges of managing the nuances of on-site fuelling on paper and spreadsheets.
Challenge 1: Tracking/Monitoring driver activities in real-time
Pacific States faced challenges in tracking where drivers are, which sites they are delivering to and knowing whether a delivery was completed or not.
Challenge 2: Creating, assigning and scheduling orders
Dispatchers were neck-deep in manual tasks like handkeying order details into the database which further increased the busy work for dispatchers.
Challenge 3: Dispatching call-in orders
Managing call-in orders via phone calls to drivers became painstakingly tedious.
