They began implementing with Fleetwatcher in 2015 and have seen great success with the services they use.

Brendan McGoey, the Logistics Manager in L.A. says, "We have greatly reduced the cost of trucking our materials, while increasing efficiency of our haulers." How have they done that? Through Fleetwatcher's easy-to-use app and real-time data: "The mobile app allows us to see real-time information. The scale ticket summaries report and the plant production report are favorites around here. The Load Cycle Analysis information has been a great tool for our foreman to manage their operations."

Gallagher Asphalt Sees Immediate Results Using Fleetwatcher

Repeat Job Provides Comparison Data and $60,000 to the Bottom Line!

When the management at Gallagher Asphalt made the decision to purchase Fleetwatcher, they expected immediate results. So when a "repeat" paving job was kicked-off, management knew this would be an opportunity for a good comparison.

"Each year, a village near Chicago paves several roads, typically taking 5-6 weeks to complete. We did this job last year and were doing what was essentially the same job this year - same number of streets, same mix, same distance, same bid. The only difference was having Fleetwatcher installed," says Jonkman. 

The result? Last year, Gallagher finished the job $60,000 over budget on trucking costs. This year, the company finished $500 under budget!

Earthwave Technologies Welcomes New Customer, Gallagher Asphalt

Earthwave Technologies would like to recognize and thank our new customer, Gallagher Asphalt, for selecting Fleetwatcher as their construction telematics solution to help them manage their equipment, projects, and bottom-line objectives for 2015 and beyond.


“We spent a lot of time over the past few years looking at telematics solutions to help us become more efficient on our material trucking operation but couldn’t find one that impressed us enough to make the investment for implementing this technology” says Trucking Manager, Justin Jonkman.

“Fleetwatcher was the first system we found with a solution that was built to give the type of information we could easily use to analyze our operations on a daily basis” said Jim Trost, VP of Operations. Trost explains, “We confirmed that observation by visiting a current “Peer Group” paving company that has been using Fleetwatcher for about a year.”
