The Haulage Company Bork – Part of the FleetBoard Success Story from the Start

The Haulage Company Bork – Part of the FleetBoard Success Story from the Start

The haulage company Bork is a middle-scale transport and logistics company led by the owner, which has operated successfully on the market for more than 55 years. “We have used FleetBoard since 2001,” explains Steffen Bork of Spedition Bork GmbH & Co. KG. “Our decision was virtually based on two factors. On the one hand, FleetBoard offers us all required modules by means of an all-in and one-stop solution. On the other hand, FleetBoard as a subsidiary of Daimler AG and Bork enjoy a long-term and reliable business relationship as partners in the industry. Another important aspect of our decision-making was the consequent orientation of FleetBoard towards future demands. Thus, FleetBoard was quick to implement the option of reading out the mass storage system of the digital tachographs while the vehicle is on the move."

The fleet of the company Bork includes 275 Mercedes-Benz truck tractors and approximately 450 state-of-the-art semi-trailers. All truck tractors comply with the most recent emission standard (Euro 5), which means that the environmental impact is reduced to a minimum. The semi-trailers include approximately 200 van body trailers (partly designed with accordion partitions, partly as refrigerated van body), as well as canvas tilt trailers in different variants. Bork exclusively uses its own equipment and only deploys its own drivers.

To guarantee the customers top service quality, 65 merchants and industrial employees are working at the Bork company site in Niederkleen around the clock. “Last year, we opted for the application of the DispoPilot to perform permanent order tracking. The locations and status messages of the vehicles are, therefore, available at all times in our dispatch office.”

With the help of the FleetBoard services, the haulage company Bork was able to improve its business processes on all sectors of the company in the past decade. With the help of the evaluation options of the truck data and by means of driver training, the company was able to influence the driving styles of its drivers in a targeted manner. “Thanks to the close interaction with the Actors truck tractors, a wide range of data sets can be covered and processed, which remains unreached by competitors. This enabled us to continuously reduce the fuel consumption of the complete fleet in the past years,” says Steffen Bork. “Over the years, these process optimisations have led to a more efficient, faster, and more precise working mode, which finally brought us the desired cost savings.”
