LogFire for Green Fleet Systems

SaaS Logistics Provider Supports for LNG/Diesel Fleet

Atlanta-based LogFire is helping Georgia- and Southern California-based Green Fleet Systems get even greener with a new SaaS – software as a service – supply chain/warehouse management system (WMS).

Might these five diesel Macks in Georgia be joined by natural gas trucks?

“LogFire extended warehouse management, operating as a cloud-based solution, is consistent too with Green Fleet’s energy and cost-efficient business model,” LogFire founder and CEO Diego Pantoja-Navajas said in a release.

“It’s been a busy year for us on both coasts, hiring staff, opening new facilities in both Savannah and Long Beach, setting up drayage and container yard operations, and implementing the new cloud-based extended warehouse management systems,” said GFS executive director Dennis Cravens.

Cost-Conscious

“The nice thing was the LogFire WMS implementation only took less than 6 weeks from project kickoff to go-live,” Cravens said. “We are now well positioned to further grow our business by offering flexible solutions to our clients, providing outstanding levels of service, and expanded operations.”

GFS deployed 14 liquefied natural gas-fueled Kenworth T800 trucks in 2008, supported by Port of Los Angeles CAAP – Clean Air Action Plan – funding. In 2010, also with grant support, the firm added eight more spark-ignition Kenworths with the smaller ISL G engine.

The firm operates five diesel Macks in Savannah, where the Colonial Group (F&F, October 3) and Clean Energy Fuels are establishing natural gas fueling. Natural gas trucks for Georgia? Possible – and much more likely if the Georgia Ports Authority or some other entity steps up with financial support. Meanwhile, the extended WMS from LogFire allows GFS to offer customers services “beyond its traditional drayage and carrier services, including transloading, more comprehensive warehousing, and other logistics services,” LogFire says.
