8 A Proven Track Record Of Satisfied Customers “Until (TransCore), the fleet had relied on drivers to do manual equipment counts and then transmit that information back to the main computer over the Qualcomm system. The RFID system does away with that chore and at the same time improves the timeliness of the data.” – Dick Simon Trucking “We estimate that we saved more than 30 man-hours of data entry daily attributable to our 10 busiest terminals. This adds up to a significant savings on a yearly basis.” – FedEx East 8
