CHALLENGE

Our client, a waste management company, faced inefficiencies in trash pickup, pickup routes, and insufficient or non-maximized capacity of trucks along routes.

SOLUTION

We implemented sensor technology that could assess trash volume at customer sites, installed sensors to weigh the truck trash space and weight, and incorporated GPS data for tracking and tracing the trucks themselves.

RESULTS

The sensor technology was able to reduce garbage collection time and route distances, improve operation efficiency, reduce wear and tear on vehicles, improve customer experience, and enhance both driver and fleet safety.

THE CHALLENGE

Our client is a large waste management company that faced inefficiencies in trash pickup, pickup routes, and insufficient or non-maximized capacity of trucks along routes. They knew if they leveraged the right sensor and location technology, they could identify which customers needed pickup, optimize truck weight based on capacity, and preserve their fleet by not overloading trucks while simultaneously optimizing pickup for best routes to save time and resources. They needed an IIOT solution that could:

  • Identify if a garbage bin is ready for waste pickup
  • Assign trucks to pick up garbage based on the current weight
  • Route optimization of garbage trucks
  • Track vehicles and utilize geofencing

THE SOLUTION

We implemented sensor technology that could assess trash volume at customer sites, installed sensors to weigh the truck trash space and weight, and incorporated GPS data for tracking and tracing the trucks themselves. By adding IIOT to each step of the process and having real data at their fingertips, the client was able to optimize their company to a higher degree than they ever had before.

THE RESULTS

  • REDUCTION IN GARBAGE COLLECTION TIME AND ROUTE DISTANCES
  • IMPROVEMENT IN OPERATION EFFICIENCY
  • REDUCED WEAR AND TEAR ON VEHICLES
  • IMPROVED CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
  • ENHANCED DRIVER AND FLEET SAFETY
