Värends Miljö has experienced rapid growth, but with that growth came the challenge of finding more efficient ways to optimize routes for its vehicles. To tackle this challenge, they chose to use MiniFinder Zepto, a GPS tracker for vehicles.

Challenges with a larger vehicle fleet
Camilla, the transport manager at Värends Miljö, discusses the challenges of mapping the company's vehicles in real-time while the vehicle fleet continues to expand.
- As the company continues to expand, we see a need to develop a more efficient transport management system, log trips, and increase safety for both drivers and vehicles, says Camilla, and Emil adds:
- We needed to have a log of it, to be able to go back and see where the vehicle had driven and how long it was on the mission, says Emil.
To address these challenges, Värends Miljö turned to MiniFinder.

In addition to efficient transport planning, Zepto has also contributed to increasing safety for both drivers and vehicles. In the event of an accident, they can immediately see where the vehicle is located, which is a safety measure in unpredictable situations.

By optimizing routes and improving planning, they can now reduce the number of miles driven per vehicle, resulting in significant environmental savings and better economy over time.
