Cadec Helps Cheney Brothers Reduce Operating Costs by Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Per Year

Foodservice Distributor Extends Supply Chain Management Effort to Point of Delivery -- Automatic Data Collection, Driver Oversight Help Improve Efficiency and Safety

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - October 19, 2009) - Cadec Global, a leading provider of advanced fleet management solutions, announced today that it is helping long-time customer Cheney Brothers reduce operating costs by hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

Cheney Brothers is one of the largest foodservice distributors in the southern U.S. The company carries more than 15,000 national brand products and its annual revenues exceed $700 million. In 2007, Cheney Brothers decided to upgrade from a first-generation fleet management product to a more advanced solution that would enable the company to remove all paper use from its transportation and delivery processes. After an extensive search, Cheney Brothers ultimately selected Cadec Global's Mobius TTS®, an advanced fleet management system that enables companies to reduce costs, enhance customer service, enforce compliance and safety regulations, and improve driver productivity.

With Mobius TTS, Cheney Brothers is now able to automatically collect, track and improve key efficiency and safety metrics and post reports in its transportation office for everyone to see. Company CIO Joe Haber reports that since Cheney Brothers implemented Mobius TTS:

--  Excessive idle time has been virtually eliminated;
--  Fuel economy as measured in MPG is up; and
--  Speeding, hard decels, unknown stops and accidents have been
    significantly reduced.
    
"Cadec is helping us fulfill our vision of removing all paper from the transportation and delivery process," said Haber. "In addition, when you consider all the savings enabled by our Cadec system -- paper, fuel, labor and insurance -- we estimate that we've reduced our operating costs by hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. That's had a significant impact on Cheney Brothers' bottom line."
