Cadec Global, a provider of advanced fleet management solutions, announced that DeMoulas Supermarkets, Inc., operator of the Market Basket chain, has implemented Cadec’s Mobius fleet management solution for its entire private trucking fleet.

DeMoulas owns and operates 60+ Market Basket supermarkets in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

DeMoulas switched from another vendor’s fleet management solution to Cadec’s, primarily for its reliability and great customer service track record. According to DeMoulas Warehouse Manager Dean Joyce, Cadec’s local presence also gave it an edge (Cadec’s headquarters in Manchester, NH are close to DeMoulas’ Tewksbury, Massachusetts warehouse).

Joyce reports that DeMoulas now uses Cadec software and on-board computers (OBCs) to track and monitor location and driver behavior for all 55 of its delivery trucks. He is now able to track metrics such as idling, on-time deliveries, drop-and-hook time, speeding and sudden decels, and posts performance reports on a weekly basis in the driver break room.

“We have a terrific group of drivers here, but tracking and posting the reports has definitely made an impact on driving behavior,” said Joyce.
