and improved reliability because faulty equipment is not sent out on the road. Being a large
LTL fleet, reliable service is what keeps customers
happy and coming back.
Every morning, their fleet expert reviews the
fault codes so that an intervention can be made
before there is a serious maintenance issue, or
even an accident. Long estimates a 10 to 15 percent
reduction of incidents attributable to that review.
For example, a specific
issue occurred when there
were some clutch activation
faults with Eaton transmissions. The telematics system
picked up the codes and initiated actions to fix the problem permanently. In an issue
with their Cummins engines,
they identified candidates for
possible high pressure that
were forcing silicates from
the intake that got into the
oil and polished the bore.
Currently, they do all analysis on an ad hoc basis and do
not use AI to flag issues. But
Long notes that all the data
is in their PeopleNet system,
so it should be a smooth
transition when the company decides to move forward.

says. He provides an average failure at a 350,000mile interval, as an example. "We might scale it
back ahead of that [failure point] in order to replace
it before it breaks down ... and figure out where
specifically we want to replace that component on
a proactive basis." Copot confirms the team will
determine the median breakdown mileage, as well
as the high and low mileage outliers.

Transervice works with all truck OEs on a
regular basis. Copot says that the lifecycle of
components can vary significantly by truck
manufacturer. "We do break it out by vehicle
manufacturer, so if we are changing a DEF [diesel
exhaust fluid] doser valve for a Freightliner, it is
going to be a different interval than it would be
for a Peterbilt," says Copot.

feel a difference
is in your wallet.

Prediction in action

Taking a proactive approach, logistics company
Transervice has worked
with numerous customers
to assess and analyze the
performance of vehicle
systems. Decisions can then
be made before a failure
occurs to service the vehicle
or replace the component.
Transervice partners with
fleets to provide dedicated
contracted maintenance and
full-service leasing, among
other available services.
Transer vice utilizes
Trimble's TMT fleet maintenance management software to track inventory,
cost, component lifecycle,
and more. In particular,
Transervice's Vice President of
Maintenance, Matt Copot, says
a dedicated team will provide
insight on the performance
and optimal lifecycle for
components based on a variety of criteria to determine
and assess failure points.
"We could be researching
an average lifecycle of an
alternator, starter, or battery,
and this helps us determine
what that cost is and what
that repair time is," Copot
